Man Utd - Benfica: Practice before the Great War

With nine points available, Man Utd can fully use the match with Benfica tonight as a rehearsal before the Chelsea match.

- Man Utd: Michael Carrick, Marouane Fellaini and Paul Pogba are still out of injury.
- Benfica: Luisao and Andre Almeida suspended. Jardel is absent due to injury.
Man Utd is going through an extremely difficult period with consecutive matches in the Premier League. One week after the arrival of Tottenham, they will have to march to the Chelsea defender. Interfering with the match against Benfica in the Champions League.
Theoretically, the game tonight is very important for Man Utd. A win will help them win the knockout stages this season. Even a draw is enough to help the Reds go if CSKA Moskva does not win Basel in the same game.
However, thanks to the comfort, United can fully use the match with Benfica as a jump for the war with Chelsea this weekend. In other words, coach Mourinho is allowed to rotate a series of important positions, thereby nourishing the key players of the Reds. Need to know that even if Man Utd use the reserve team, they can still win 3 points.
First of all, Benfica is not as strong as it was last season. This season, they lost all three matches in the group stage with a very silver face. The sale of a star last summer made the Portuguese defender lose himself in the European arena.
Second, the reserves of Manchester United are not so bad. Players such as Daley Blind, Matteo Darmian, Jesse Lingard or Anthony Martial can completely "tackle" weaker opponents if they play well. Even young talents like Scott McTominay or Axel Tuanzebe have made significant strides in the past.
At the end of the day, Man Utd are no longer trying to attack beautifully, scoring as much as the first season. Tough schedules and serious injury forced Mourinho to return to the pragmatic. In the first leg against Benfica, the Reds won 1-0 even though the squad was quite strong. In addition to the 3-point goal, they also want to refresh and they will repeat the story tonight.
Prediction: Man Utd won 1-0
