Over the year Manchester United and Juventus have been involved in some epic battles and tonight Gary Neville prepares for one final run-out in the red strip of his beloved club.
The class of ’94 will be reunited at Old Trafford tonight as Neville has managed to secure the likes of David Beckham, Phil Neville and Nicky Butt all returning to wear the red shirt, and the betting on this event is hotly contested.
Manchester United are 8/11 to beat Juventus at Old Trafford tonight and with the likes of Paul Scholes, Ryan Giggs and Beckham making cameo appearances, you can expect plenty of support for the boys in red.
While the match will be played in honour of Gary Neville’s service to the club, Neville will be overshadowed by the return of Beckham to Old Trafford.
Neville was best man to Beckham at his wedding to Victoria Beckham back in 1999 and the two are best friends from their playing days together, however all eyes will be on Beckham tonight.
Juventus are 11/4 to take victory tonight and are sending over a very strong squad which includes the likes of Gianluigi Buffon, Alessandro Del Piero, Luca Toni, Alberto Aquilani, Milos Krasic and Girogio Chiellini.
The Italian giants are bringing over a squad of 22 and Juve will want to upset Gary Neville on his big night.
But the Manchester United players will be desperate to send Neville out on a high and the Premier League champions are 25/1 to win 3-2.
In the 1997/98 and the 1998/99 Champions League seasons Manchester United defeated Juventus 3-2 in two thrilling victories and the fans that fill Old Trafford tonight will be wanting a repeat.
Scholes, Giggs and Del Piero all scored in the 97/98 clash but it would be a fitting end to Nevilles’s career should Beckham get the winner from a dead ball situation.
