Champions League: Michael Owen predicts Leipzig vs Man Utd, Chelsea vs Krasnodar

Former England striker, Michael Owen, is backing Manchester United to progress in the Champions League ahead of their final group-stage match against RB Leipzig.

United were beaten 3-1 by Paris Saint-Germain last week, which means they need to avoid defeat in Germany on Tuesday, to qualify for the Round of 16.

“Leipzig quite simply need to win. I reckon if they attack United, they could leave themselves exposed at the back and pay the ultimate price against a side that seem to be at their best when playing on the counter-attack.

“RB Leipzig 1-2 Manchester United,” Owen told BetFair.

Chelsea have already qualified for the knockout rounds and host Krasnodar tonight.

Owen expects Frank Lampard’s men to continue on their fine run.

He said: “Both sides come into the game on a high and you’d expect both managers to tinker with their sides.

“That said, Chelsea have huge strength in depth, and I expect them to finish off the group stages strongly.”
