Olympiakos FC are leading the Greek SuperLeague table and are way ahead of the second placed Salonika with a 20 points’ lead in just 26 matches. Man United on the other hand, are struggling in their domestic league as they are struggling to win even against relegation contenders Fulham.
Despite their stupendous run in the domestic league that has seen them win 24 out of 26 matches, they have been tamed by PSG in the group fixtures of UEFA CL on both occasions. The performance of ManU has rather been surprising in the Champions League as they have remained undefeated in the campaign so far.
The head to head record of ManU against Olympiakos is impressive too as they have won all four encounters against their Greek counterparts.
The performance of Man United this season has left a lot to be desired as the manager David Moyes continues to be under fierce criticism. The only way to silence it for a while would be to make it farther in the Champions League.
The team from Greece is in fact a lucky entrant as they qualified by beating Benfica unexpectedly in the last round with the help of a hattrick from Javier Saviola. Unfortunately, Saviola has been ruled out of the match tonight due to thigh injury, a major setback for Olympiakos. Their January signing from Uruguay Nelson Valdez’s fitness has been kept a secret by the team manager but he is most likely to play.
Man Utd would miss Phil Jones, Jonny Evans and Nani due to injury concerns. The good news is that bothe Rafael and Welbeck are fit again and travelling with the squad.
