Manchester United - Liverpool
Manchester United should win this match. They are in excellent form and the players confidence is very high. The home form is on the highest level, they beat the last four opponents at Old Trafford in the Premier League. In addition, the Red Devils destroyed Roma and almost secured final after the high 6:2 win on Thursday. Bruno Fernandes and Edinson Cavani are in good form as they both scored braces. Solskjaer has the majority of his players available, he doesn t need to rotate as the second-leg match with Roma is just a formality.
Liverpool have only theoretical chances to secure Champions League spot. The Reds dropped too many points in 2021. The misery continued last weekend, they played just a draw with Newcastle at Anfield. Salah scored an early goal and the Reds had domination. However, the reigning champions conceded a last-minute equalizer. It is clear Liverpool are struggling at home. They have collected only 27 points in home, while dropped 24. According to me, there is a reason for poor results - the injury situation. All three central defenders, Virgil van Dijk, Joe Gomez and Joel Matip suffered injuries and missed the majority of the season. Klopp has additional worries ahead of this match as captain Henderson is also out.
Liverpool have not won at Old Trafford since 2014 and I don t expect anything to be changed now. Manchester United are in better form and should win this match.
