Match Preview: Manchester United v Inter Milan

The reds to continue their Champions Cup campaign against Italian Giants Inter Milan. I think it’s fair to say that this game will be dominated by the return of former Manchester United Centre Back Nemanja Vidic. This is the first time the Serbian has faced United since he made his move at the start of the transfer window.

Inter Milan began the tournament with a win against Real Madrid on penalties. Nemanja Vidic won a penalty in normal time which Mauro Icardi chipped into the back of the net. The game finished 1-1. The big Serb then went on to score a penalty expertly in the shootout which Inter won 3-2.

United beat Roma 3-2 in their last game with Rooney scoring a wonder goal, as well as a powerful penalty after a foul on Welbeck. The other goal was scored by Juan Mata who slotted home a delicious chip after a fantastic long pass from the aforementioned Rooney. But to be fair the goal of the game was scored by Miralem Pjanic with a goal from well inside his own half. Then Roma legend Francesco Totti made things tense for United late on, after scoring from the spot for a harsh handball call given against Michael Keane.

Score Prediction

Manchester United 3-1 Inter Milan

The reds have been in good goal scoring form of late and hopefully that continues and i’m sure many United fans wouldn’t be too disheartened if Vidic scored a goal if we go 3-0 up.
