Michael Owen Champions League Predictions including Man Utd vs RB Leipzig


Manchester United are hoping to continue their unbeaten run when they face RB Leipzig on Wednesday night.

The Red Devils have bounced back from losing to Tottenham with two wins and one draw in their last three games following the international break.

This included an impressive 2-1 win in Paris last week as they kicked off their Champions League season with a stormy start with victory over PSG.

However, they face another tough test as last season’s Champions League semi-finalists visit Old Trafford with qualification on their agenda.

Former United forward and Betvictor ambassador Michael Owen predicts a 1-1 draw between the two teams.

He said: “What a result it was in Paris last week for Manchester United. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has perfectly executed his game plan and is hoping for something more similar against Leipzig.

“However, last year’s semifinalists aren’t sloppy and I think they have enough in their locker to get something out of Old Trafford so I’m on the side of the draw.”

Meanwhile, another of Owen’s old clubs, Liverpool, who beat Ajax last week, take on Danish side FC Midtjylland at Anfield.

Midtjylland were beaten 4-0 by Atalanta last week and Owen estimates the Reds will win by the same score.

“They are starting to get back on their feet after a rather shaky start to their home campaign,” he said. “They will definitely aim for maximum points against the Danes here.

“Midtjylland were disassembled at home against Atalanta, and if they show up at Anfield in a similar form, they could have a long night.”

Chelsea won 2-0 against FC Krasnodar following the standoff against Sevilla last week.

Owen said: “The Blues will be aiming for three points in this one, and with Christian Pulisic now in form, I think the Blues should have more than enough to bring the points back to Stamford Bridge.”

Meanwhile, Manchester City will be looking to win consecutively in Europe when they travel to France to face Marseille, and Owen is suggesting they take the points.

He added: “The Citizens have not yet found their rhythm, so this represents another difficult match for Pep Guardiola’s team.

“Marseille lost their first Champions League game away to Olympiacos and, although they will be disappointed, they hope to score points at home. I expect another close game here, but I think City will have enough to edge it. “
