Wolves have been struggling to perform well ever since they beat Manchester City.

Suffice it to say that the Wolves are on the backfoot this match-day.

Manchester United vs Wolves Prediction

Manchester United lined up with a characteristically second-grade squad for the reverse fixture, and on the road, they were held to a 0-0 draw. 

Wolves did try to make the most of their home status then, considering their struggles on the road, but were unable to crack open the defense of the Devils.

This Wednesday however, we will be witnessing a new-look Manchester United. Sure they had taken things lightly the first leg, but that mistake will not be repeated this time around. 

First and foremost, the advantage that the fortress of Old Trafford provides will be supremely influential in determining the outcome of the game. The Devils have been on a roll at their home for the last several match-days.

In fact, they were unbeaten in 19 of their last 21 appearances here, and the sole two losses the Manchester outfit have suffered in front of their home crowd this season came against Manchester City, and Crystal Palace.

In addition, the Devils have also scored two or more goals in eight of their last ten home games, and three or more goals in four of the preceding six matches here.

On the other hand, Wolves are winless in their last four overall match-ups, and have scored a total of two goals from these many games. On the road, they have a total of two wins from their last nine trips, and are on a streak of two away fixtures.

Furthermore, over the years, Manchester United have totally dominated this opponent. In fact, they recorded eight of the last eleven such wins, and at this venue, disregarding a single draw, the Devils hold a 100% winning record in the last twenty years.

Taking these factors into consideration, it’s assumed that Manchester United will easily cruise to a comfortable victory this Wednesday.
