With Mourinho's men having looked prolific but fragile at the back, Al Hain-Cole expects a high-scoring Champions League clash versus the Bianconeri

After an encouraging performance against Chelsea, Manchester United will need to be on top form when Juventus visit Old Trafford in Tuesday’s Champions League clash.

Jose Mourinho’s team showed great character to come back from 1-0 down to lead against his former club, only to be denied an impressive victory by Ross Barkley’s 97th-minute equaliser.

Latest Odds

With just one victory to their name in six fixtures though, United are 21/10 (3.10) underdogs with bet365 to build on the Stamford Bridge display with a big win against high class opposition.

Juventus celeb Genoa

The Bianconeri failed to win for the first time in 11 fixtures this season when they were held to a 1-1 draw against Genoa on Saturday, but are 13/10 (2.30) favourites to return to winning ways in this one.

Three of the last four matches at this ground have resulted in draws, and there are odds of 23/10 (3.30) available on the sides cancelling each other out once again here.

Team News

Jesse Lingard, Marouane Fellaini and Marcos Rojo could all be in contention after returning to training following injury. Alexis Sanchez missed Monday's session despite only coming on as a late substitute at Stamford Bridge and has been confirmed as an absentee by Mourinho.

Emre Can will miss out after being diagnosed with a thyroid nodule that may require surgery, with Rodrigo Bentacur set to take his place in midfield. Mario Mandzukic has also been ruled out after spraining his ankle.

High-scoring clash

After hardly looking like scoring in a dire 0-0 draw at home to Valencia in their previous Champions League game, the Red Devils have racked up five goals in the two subsequent matches.

Although this renewed attacking threat is certainly timely for such a crucial European game, the fact they have also conceded twice in each of those two matches does not bode particularly well against a team that has struck twice or more in six of the last seven Champions League fixtures.

Predictions

All in all, odds of 11/10 (2.10) look extremely generous on over 2.5 goals being scored for United’s 10th game in 13 this campaign, as well as Juventus’ sixth in seven in this competition.
