Home team Manchester United in this match comes after several impressive games that have done the last few meetings and are likely to want to continue in this vein that has won them a further placement in the competition and also just two points behind the leader of Manchester City in their home league.
The Red Devils are in the past few weeks have had a couple of very serious meeting in which they are against the teams from the top of a table which matches with the teams Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool and Tottenham in which they successfully defeated the last round with 3-1 score and time crossed a very serious obstacle to a possible new winning 20 titles in their history.
In any case, the players of Manchester United after victory over Ajax in two games after this competition and good games in their domestic league, certainly in this match includes very motivated and eager to continue the good show. As for the injuries the team still does Antonio Valencia, Tom Cleverly and Chris Smalling, who should in a few weeks back in the band.

This team has provided a vital victory by a score of 2-0 over local rivals Real Sociedad, which jumped to fifth in the table with a total of 37 points won in the previous 25 encounters played. This team is now just six points less than third-placed team in Valencia, however, that even all the teams out of 10 seats at stake in a leading position in the contest the Champions League or Europa League, then nothing is certainly not for this team Athletic Bilbao.
Athletic Team is managed in the past two duel pass the obstacle called Lok. Moscow with which they played in the first match 2-1 and where they were defeated after that at home still celebrated with a minimum goal difference which was sufficient for their further continuation of the competition. At this meeting comes after three games in which they have not experienced a defeat that led them in attack Fernando Llorente and Javi Martinez redine field, then certainly have reason for optimism before the first match at Old Trafford.
If Sir Alex Ferguson to be taken more seriously I think that this encounter dilemmas about the winner should not be compromised while on the other hand, if you happen to play casually then guests have a great chance for a favorable outcome in the first leg but I have a personal belief that the this will not happen and that the team Manchester United’s victory here entered to make it easier for the second leg encounter things so my option is a victory for local teams.
