Both teams are struggling at the moment, and they have also struggled to score goals against each other in their previous encounters

Manchester United welcomes Valencia to Old Trafford for their Champions League - Group H matchday two fixture on Tuesday evening.

Jose Mourinho will be looking to get a reaction from his men at home in this game, after suffering a 3-1 defeat at West Ham in the Premier league during the weekend; just four days after the Red Devils got knocked out from the EFL Cup via a penalty shootout by Frank Lampard’s Derby County.

Meanwhile, Valencia have also been struggling this campaign.

And to put that into perspective, Los Che only got their first win so far in the season during the weekend at Real Sociedad – after seven games. That’s why in this fixture, they are tagged as underdogs with Bet365 at odds of (5.50).

The last time both sides met in this competition, the game ended in a 1-1 draw at Old Trafford. Another stalemate at the end of 90 minutes in this clash is priced at juicy odds of (4.00) with the same betting firm.

The three-time UEFA Champions League winners are joint-top in Group H with Juventus after their 3-0 win at Young Boys last time out and are outright favorites to win on their turf at odds of (1.60).

The last two meetings between these two sides in the group stage of this competition failed to produce more than two goals.

And as they are both struggling to score goals at the moment, expect scarcity of goals in this match. Punters can reap cool returns with Bet365 - placing odds of (2.00) on the game not to produce more than two goals.
