Champions League Group H Prediction
FINALLY! The final group bracket to predict. With some results already passed, the prediction still holds up as to who looks likely to advance and who will fall out, so let’s take a look.
Group H: Juventus, Manchester United, Valencia C.F, BSC Young Boys
You look at this group and think it’s a toss up with Juventus and Man United. But with the struggles in United’s camp, Juventus seem so much stronger, and that’s even without Cristiano Ronaldo. Ronaldo will be available for the next match against United at Old Trafford. Juventus have this group well in hand.
If you would’ve said the second spot was a toss up between the remaining three teams, you would seem like a deluded football fan but after the campaign Man United have put on, there’s no way they’re a clear cut favorite to advance to the Round of 16. On merit and strength of squad, United are the likely team to finish second. Keep in mind, manager Jose Mourinho is about to be sacked pending a bad performance, and the squad seem disinterested in playing for him.
Valencia are the next best squad to finish second though third seems more reasonable. They did manage a 0-0 draw with United previously in the group and from there they seem a candidate pending if United slip up. All this team can do is hope they put up the results needed and be there in the end to capitalize on a trip to the Round of 16.
Young Boys seem the least likely to win second place but shouldn’t be left out of the conversation. Again, a vulnerable Man United is a chance at a glimmer of hope they will have the results needed. So far, third looks like their best hope of a finish.
With the Champions League well underway, that is all the predictions needed.
