It’s fair to say David Moyes’ tenure at Man United hasn’t exactly been plain sailing. And things may get worse before they get better, should his United side fail to qualify for the Quarter Finals of the Champions League tonight against an Olympiakos side who are yet to win a game on English soil in the competition.
United trail 2-0 after a first leg defeat to Olympiakos and despite being tonight’s favourites at 1.48, the Red Devils are 2.65 outsiders to progress to the next stage of the competition outright whilst their Greek counterparts are 1.38 favourites with ComeOn!.
Reports suggest defenders Chris Smalling and Jonny Evans are the only absentees ahead of tonight’s all important fixture. Although judging by United’s defensive performance in their 3-0 defeat to Liverpool on Sunday, they may be bigger losses than once thought with Phil Jones and Nemanja Vidic proving ineffective as a central defensive partnership.
