Manchester United have been struggling in their domestic play, both tournaments and the Premier League. Still, they’re confident that they can play better in the UEFA Champions League tournament and make a run. To start, United travel to Greece to take on Olympiakos Piraeus.
“I really enjoy these games so I’m looking forward to it,” United manager David Moyes said, via comments distributed by UEFA. “Winning the group was a boost, but the game against Olympiacos will be tough. We have to play well to qualify. It’s an opportunity to try and win a competition, but we have to get through this tie first.
“[Wayne] Rooney and [Robin] Van Persie are in really good shape and they’re both scoring goals in the big games. We are a far better team when they are with us. Olympiacos have done well this season, particularly against Paris Saint-Germain and Benfica. They came through a difficult group so we know it’s going to be tough.”
