The pick of the matches on Tuesday sees Inter Milan taking on Manchester United in Italy. The bookies have Inter favourites over 90 minutes, it must be some time since United took to the field not being the favourites in any match. Although a lot is being made of Ferguson only beating Mourinho once in twelve attempts, i personally wouldn’t take much notice of that. During Mourinho’s time in the Premier League Ferguson was rebuilding his United team and turning them into what they are today, at the time Mourinho inherited a Chelsea team on the up and approaching their prime so it’s no surprise that Mourinho had the better of the exchanges. Even the Champions League clash between the two when Mourinho was at Porto was only decided in Mourinho’s favour by a wrongly raised lineman’s flag at Old Trafford.

It’s hard to oppose United at the moment and odds of 23/10 with Bet365 on them don’t come along to often, if they go for it i expect them to win – my only concern is that with the lack of defenders at Ferguson’s disposal will he be a bit more cautious and settle for a draw.
