Champions League Football- Group A: Bayer Leverkusen v Manchester United Preview

In the rollercoaster that is Manchester United’s season, it seems to be their European form that has looked the most positive. Going into Wednesday’s match against Bayer Leverkusen, United are unbeaten in their four Group A matches after winning two (against Leverkusen and Real Sociedad) and drawing two (against Sociedad and Shakhtar Donetsk). Their 4-2 victory over Leverkusen in their opening Champions League match means the German side are in 2nd place before Wednesday’s clash.

United continued their inconsistent domestic form with a 2-2 draw away to Cardiff City on Sunday. Wayne Rooney’s 15th minute opener became a talking point as the England striker could have very well been sent off for kicking out at Cardiff’s Jordan Mutch eight minutes earlier. Cardiff redressed the balance 15 minutes later as former United striker Fraizer Campbell slipped the ball past David de Gea to level the scoreline. Yet United were back in front on the stroke of half time, with United captain Patrice Evra, who was making his 350th appearance for United, heading home from Rooney’s corner. United didn’t seem to be able to force many more chances before Bo-Kyung Kim drew Cardiff level for the 2nd time with a 91st minute header from Peter Whittingham’s corner. United had a chance to win the match before full time – Rooney’s unselfishness proved costly as his attempted pass to Danny Welbeck could only find Cardiff ‘keeper David Marshall. The draw means United drop down to 6th in the Barclays Premier League, meaning the Red Devils still haven’t been in the top three since their opening day victory over Swansea City.

Leverkusen moved up to 2nd place following their hard fought 1-0 away win to Hertha BSC in Berlin. Stefan Kießling’s 29th minute strike, coming as a result of the marginally offside Jens Hegeler’s through ball, proved to be the only goal of the match, giving Sami Hyypiä’s men their 10th win of the season.

With Robin Van Persie and Phil Jones doubts for Wednesday’s match with groin strains, and Michael Carrick unavailable with tendonitis in his achilles, United’s side is unlikely to be at full strength. The return of right back Rafael will boost the team’s confidence though, and we think they could hold Leverkusen to yet another draw at the BayArena.

Manchester United go into their first Champions League Group A match at home to Bayer Leverkusen on the back of a 2-0 victory over newly promoted Premier League side Crystal Palace. Manager Ian Holloway had to watch from the stands as he saw his side concede from two set pieces at Old Trafford on Saturday afternoon. The first came when Ashley Young, who had been booked for simulation no more than 10 minutes previously, went down on the edge of the Palace box just before half time. Referee Jon Moss deliberated before pointing to the spot and subsequently showing defender Kagisho Digacoi a straight red card. Robin Van Persie sent goalkeeper Julian Speroni the wrong way and coolly placed the ball in the bottom left corner to give United the lead at half time.

Wayne Rooney, whose future at Old Trafford has been in doubt over recent weeks, showed why he still has a part to play at United as his free kick dipped over the wall before beating Speroni at his near post. United finished the match as 2-0 winners, and that victory should give Moyes’ boys a huge amount of confidence going into Tuesday evening’s match.

Marouane Fellaini was not the only Belgian who had an impressive Premier League debut for the Premier League champions. 18 year-old Adnan Janujaz turned heads with deceivingly strong runs down United’s left wing and provided the assist for Rooney’s goal by winning the initial free kick. Should the two Belgians be handed their Champions League debuts on Tuesday, United could look very dangerous.

Leverkusen, who finished third last season, could be without Lars Bender for their trip to Manchester, while United may have to make do without on-form striker Danny Welbeck and key defender Phil Jones. Despite the omission of the two internationals, we believe United will come out on top in Manchester on Tuesday.
