Ian Wright Tips Manchester United To Upset Juventus In Turin

share on:

Former Arsenal striker Ian Wright has tipped Manchester United to beat Juventus in Wednesday night’s Champions League clash in Turin.

Paulo Dybala scored the only goal of the match as Juventus recorded a 1-0 win at Old Trafford in the first leg on October 23.

The Old Lady are seen as the strong favourites to triumph once again, having won 13 of their 14 matches in all competitions this season.

Juventus have also only lost twice at home since October 2017, but Wright has tipped United – victorious in their last two Premier League matches – to triumph “if they are up for the fight”.

“They have had their noses bloodied plenty of times already this season – now it’s time for Manchester United to dish out a bruising of their own,” Wright told The Sun. “And if they are up for the fight, make no mistake about it, I wouldn’t say this could be the night they turn their season around, I’d say it will be.

“Juventus away in the Champions League, games don’t come much tougher than facing the team many fancy to be lifting the ­trophy on June 1 next year. But if you can come out of it with a result or, at least a performance to be proud of, then it really is one which can transform your entire campaign.

“Maybe not having the pressure of being favourites, of being at home with the expectation of ­taking the game to opponents, will see them express themselves a ­little more. Let’s hope so, anyway, because they do have the talent in the team. There were green shoots in Alexis Sanchez’s performance at the weekend and Anthony Martial is red-hot right now.”
