With the Champions league group stage almost at its end, teams get ready to give in their best so as to ensure that they move on to the next stage and others try as much as possible to secure a place in the Europa League for themselves.
But in the case of Manchester United’s group, the group H, things are really almost different. Looking at Juventus who sits at the first position with 10 points and Manchester United, second with 8 points. While valencia and Young Boys dwell at the lower end with 3 points and 1 point respectively.
In this group, whether Juventus losses or wins, they have already secured a place in the knock-out stage. So they probably won’t stress theirselves much, they might even end up featuring some random players in their game tomorrow since they have already qualified.
Manchester United being the subject matter for this very post will be talked about lastly. Then we go over to Valencia who are sitting on the third position with 3 points, 2 points ahead of the last placed Young Boys.
Valencia would want to play a good and industrious game tomorrow, in order to ensure that they have properly secured a place in the Europa League, considering the fact that Young Boys might slightly win The Old Lady.
Eventually, if this happens to be the case, Valencia will be left with much work to do because they are now 1 point behind Young Boys.
Now, this is where Manchester United comes to play. Valencia shouldn’t be expecting a merciful game from their guest, Manchester United.
There might be danger looming, Manchester United’s midfielder has really been waiting for the match day to come. He even went up to the extent of marking the date on his calendar.
Probably, it might not be for an ulterior motive, which I doubt. Following the content he left on his blog, juanmata8.com. Mata expressed via his blog that his team are fighting to come out first in the group stage, and that is literally detrimental to Valencia.
On the other hand, it might not be what am thinking. It might be for love of Mestalla (Valencia’s Stadium). Mata also disclosed that he expects much love from the fans at Mestalla, been the second team he played for.
Lines from Juanmata8.com
“I know that it is not the best moment for Valencia, but I also know from experience that feelings can change after two good games. The Europa League will be special for a fanbase to which I owe so much. I’m looking forward to seeing you all and returning to a place which was my home for four seasons.”

Meanwhile, while we wait for the game tomorrow, I think this is the right time to place your bet, and that is for the gamblers. The odds should be really high now compared to how it would be tomorrow.
