Valencia CF visit Manchester United on Tuesday (9.00 pm / Movistar Champions League), on the second day of the group stage of the 'Champions League', with the intention of raiding Old Trafford and delving into the wound of the team of José Mourinho.[[Follow the match Manchester United - Valencia live].
Without losing in his last two visits to the feud of the 'red devils', with two draws (1-1) in both 2001 and 2010, Valencia trusts and sighs to win in the 'Theater of dreams', in which It would be a big step in his struggle to be in the last 16.
Manchester United is not at its best, tenth in the Premier League and with one last painful defeat at West Ham's home (3-1) leaves Mourinho in doubt, criticized by the British press and with several fires, such as his relationship with Paul Pogba.
In those troubled waters you want to fish a Valencia that, however, is in a similar situation. Although, as the coach, Marcelino García Toral, pointed out in the previous one, he is sure to have scored less points in LaLiga than he deserved.
Now, in Manchester, the pressure and nerves of the European debut are behind, and go without the tag of favorites and nothing to lose to a wounded opponent can be key in an upward Valencia in which only Santi Mina and Ferran Torres will be low.
On the other hand, Mourinho will not be able to count on important men like Ashley Young, Marcos Rojo, Ander Herrera and Jesse Lingard, so he will have to use men he does not seem to trust as Alexis Sanchez, Pogba himself or, behind, make a defense almost new.
