United have been playing some real good football of late and they qualified for the knock out stages with the flying colours and will be hoping to keep the run going as they were drawn against French Side Olympic Marseille for the Round of 16 Tie which will be played on 23 Faburary 2011 at Old Trafford. Although many people are suggesting that this is a easy tie for United but it is not by any means Marseille are very dangerous side these days and with them playing the seond leg at home makes it even harder for United.

From the look of things this is a tie which United should win it, but they tend to struggle against the teams which are kind of underdogs and have a good home record and with marseill playing the second leg at Veldrome, I can see united struggling but eventualy making it to the next round. It reminds me of that tie against Porto couple of years ago when A Ronaldo Thunderbold won them the 2nd leg against Porto.
Manchester United vs Marseille Predictions
United will go into the tie as favourites and Sir Alex will be looking to keep the clean sheet at home and go to Valdrome on 16 March and make it to the quarter Final, I can see United killing the game off in First leg, if they can get a 1-0 win to Marseille than Surely it would be enough for them to see of the away leg.
