Paired meetings are a crucial moment for many teams. On Wednesday, Juventus can solve all the problems in the Champions League: Allegri will draw a ticket for the draw, and the win will reserve the first place. "MJ" was suspended over the ruin. If Mourinho loses again, and Valencia will deal with the young guys at home, then Jose will be in the Europa League zone.
The special piquancy of the meeting is the presence of Ronald, who will meet again with his favorite team. In Manchester, Krish did not score, but obviously he wants to improve in Turin: he has only one goal against Manchester United and zero in the last five games of the Champions League. It's time to get it straight and catch it short from Barse.

Who will watch the match on TV
"MJ" has one problem, but very big – will not play Lukaku. Mourinho confirmed the injury to the Belgian and noticed that Romella could miss derby from the City.
Even the British will not have the participation of Dalton, Fellaini and Valencia, but they both trained on Tuesday.
"Juventus" is much more serious: there will be no injured Jana, Costa, Spinazzola and Keane. Chiellini, Matiuidi and Mandzhukich entered the registration, but there are issues Allegri will decide before the match.
The defeat from Juve had a good impact on MJ: after that, Red Devils won two victories in the Premier League. The truth, if everything was easier with Everton, then Bournemouth confirmed Mourinho and miraculously gave them points.
"Juve" was also the most useful interval between meetings with "MJ". The Allegri spawned two wins and were built first – "Empoli" and "Cagliari", of course, not competitors.
Who said what
Massimiliano Allegri, coach of Juventus: "We want to achieve the main goal – to enter the playoffs. It's not that important whether we leave first or second place." The most important thing is that the March matches are approaching in good order to be competitive in all competitions.
Of course, I am waiting for Ronaldo for goals. If he spent more time on the field in the Champions League, the situation would have been different. "
Jose Mourinho, head coach of Manchester United: "Yes, we are changing our game to attack more, there are many examples of the commands that do it." "I admit that in many games we show more attacking football, and the reality is that I miss out on too many goals and miss out on our weakness. I can hide and sometimes not. "
- This will be the 14th meeting of Juventus and MJ. The Italians have 6 wins, the British have 5.
- "MJ" did not score in the last two matches of the Champions League in a row. Line 3 of the dry meeting happened with the "red devils" in 2005.
- Allegri lost only one of the 26 home matches of Juventus in the Champions League (16 wins and 9 unresolved).
- Mourinho last came to Torino in 2009, and then he scored with Juventus for Inter.
- Ronaldo did not enter the Champions League 389 minutes. During this time, Krish delivered 15 strokes.

Men in Black
The meeting was discussed by a team of arbitrators headed by Ovidiu Hatsegan. During 2018, a 39-year-old referee worked on three matches in the Champions League: with him Bayern beat Besiktas (5: 0), CSKA pulled Real (1: 0) and Barca – Inter (2: 0).
In 2017 Hategan rated the match between Juventus and Porto (1: 0).
In centre of attention
In Turin, "MJ" will spend a lot of time in its half, and Juve will continue to push. A strong attack by the Turin players will at the same time push the defense of the guests, which is no longer as reliable as it used to be. The result will make a bunch of Ronald and Dibali, but the Argentine will play a decisive role, as Krish entered the Champions League for some time.
High pressure will fall to the central zone "MJ", where Pijanich, Matuidi and other monsters will be demolished from all sides. If you can rely on Matić, Fred still does not fit into the idea of Mourinho. The Brazilian makes enough mistakes – a meeting in Turin will not be an exception.
