Old Trafford – 18th November at 19.45
Manchester United’s Old Trafford stadium, the ‘Theatre of Dreams’ tonight plays host to a match of dreams as Cristiano Ronaldo returns to his spiritual home with the Portuguese national team. They face 2014 World Cup runners up, Argentina and their superstar Lionel Messi, in a battle of world’s top two players.
Despite the match being a midweek, international friendly it is showcasing the two biggest names in football, who have won the last 6 (soon to be 7) FIFA Ballon D’or awards between them. But surprisingly there’s still plenty of tickets available to see them and a host of other great players like Di Maria, Tevez and Nani who will be on display.
Hopefully plenty more fans will turn up on the night and they should get see some great action and enjoy a rare chance to see such a prestigious match in Manchester. In terms of betting it’s always tricky to take anything confidently when it comes to international friendlies.
However, Argentina -0.5 is priced up at an attractive 1.95 and with the Albicelestes in solid form since perhaps unluckily losing the World Cup final in June. Meanwhile, Portugal continue to struggle in qualifying group games and remain almost exclusively reliant on Ronaldo to score goals and win games on his own.
The advised trade for this match is, Argentina -0.5 at 1.95.
