Before the match of “Manchester United” and “Manchester City”
Solskjaer is still at the helm of United and has no intention of leaving. Ole rebuilt the Devils into a three-center-back formation, set up a pair of strikers Ronaldo-Cavani (Rashford), and things went uphill. First, Solskjaer, whose imminent resignation was written by all the media, defeated Tottenham in London and thereby fired Nuna Espiritu Santo, and then brought a draw from Bergamo to the Champions League.
In the game against Atalanta, everything was decided by the genius Cristiano Ronaldo. The Portuguese scored in extra time for each half, retaining the MVP title. In the Champions League, KriRo is gorgeous – scores in every match, makes a result. But things are not so smooth in the Premier League. The coolest league in the world is so merciless that even great individuals pale against the background of competent teamwork. Order beats the class, as they say. And Crystal Palace proved it in the last round, having beaten Manchester City not without a share of luck.
Forecast for the match “Manchester United” – “Manchester City”
The micro-crisis of Man City, which came at the end of October, of course, cannot be compared with the problems of United. The Norwegian tries new schemes, additionally motivates the players, frees Ronaldo from defensive work. In general, he does everything to prevent rumors of his dismissal from becoming a reality. In Guardiola’s team, everyone knows their role, and there are even more quality performers than in the red part of Manchester. It seems that the outcome of the derby is clear.
