Manchester United vs Galatasaray Predictions

  • Manchester United have won just two of their last six games in all competitions
  • Group A’s opening two games featured a total of 11 goals
  • Both teams have scored in four of Galatasaray’s last five games

Pressure mounting on Erik ten Hag

Defeat to Crystal Palace on Sunday means Manchester United have endured their worst ever start to a Premier League season and punters should not rush to back the Red Devils against Galatasaray in the Champions League on Tuesday.

Erik ten Hag’s men have lost four of their first seven games in this term’s Premier League – the first time they have done so since the 1989-90 season – and pressure is mounting on the Dutchman.

Last season Manchester United secured a third-placed finish in the Premier League but it is becoming clear they may have been punching above their weight and there are problems in the team from back to front this campaign.

Against Palace, United were wasteful, failing to score with 19 shots and 78 per cent possession, but the goals did flow in their matches in September.

One notable contest was their Champions League opener against Bayern Munich, who prevailed 4-3 at the Allianz Arena.

It is fair to say that the scoreline flattered United, who scored in the 88th and 95th minutes in Bavaria, and they have an uphill battle in Group A.

Galatasaray suffer scare against Copenhagen

Their next opponents Galatasaray also left it late to make their mark in their first game in this season’s Champions League.

At home to Copenhagen on matchday one, the Turkish Super Lig side were 2-0 down until the 86th minute, when Sacha Boey gave Galatasaray hope before Tete snatched a crucial equaliser two minutes later.

With Manchester United and Bayern Munich still to come home and away, Galatasaray could not afford to lose that opener and will reflect on the point fondly.

They have since racked up three wins on the spin in Turkey, leaving them second in the Super Lig, just two points adrift of pacesetters Fenerbahce.

A visit to Old Trafford will not be easy but Galatasaray can drawn confidence from the fact United have lost there to Crystal Palace and Brighton this season, while they were also made to work hard in wins over Wolves and Nottingham Forest.

Punters should swerve result at Old Trafford

Nothing about this United team suggests they are a good bet against Galatasaray and punters should swerve the result market.

Instead, both teams to score and over 2.5 goals looks a good bet, having clicked in both United and Galatasaray’s Champions League openers.

As for a correct score prediction, it would be no surprise to see United drop points again given their current form and punters should consider backing a 2-2 draw at Old Trafford.
