Manchester United v Cambridge


Old Trafford, Manchester

Wednesday February 4 – 5:45am (AEST)


 

Manchester United and Cambridge lock horns for the second time in as many weeks on Wednesday (AEST) for a spot in the FA Cup quarter-finals.

The fourth round clash away to Cambridge was a performance we’ve become accustom to seeing over the past two seasons from Manchester United. Despite dominating in all departments, Louis Van Gaal’s men couldn’t manage to penetrate their opponent’s defence. Robin Van Persie and Angel Di Maria were both wasteful in front of goal, however United’s resilient defensive efforts would’ve been comforting for Van Gaal. The Red Devils head into this match off the back of a dominating 3-1 win over Leicester in the EPL, and they’ll be looking to translate their league form into the FA Cup.

Although United should have won by two or three goals, the League Two outfit were fully deserving of earning a replay at Old Trafford. Cambridge weathered an onslaught from the English giants for most of the 90 minutes of play, but their courage and determination was enough to frustrate their opponents. Midfielder Ryan Donaldson impressed for Cambridge, as did centre-halves Michael Nelson and Josh Coulson. Chelsea, Manchester City, Tottenham and Southampton were all casualties in the fourth round of the tournament, and Cambridge will look to add United onto that list.

With United now benefiting from home-ground advantage, they’re the extremely short-priced favourites. Despite both sides drawing blanks in the first match, punters believe it’ll be raining goals on Wednesday, with the match to produce four goals or more option  popular amongst TattsBet customers.
