Manchester United will be looking to secure a spot in the semifinals as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men hit the road to play Wolverhampton Wanderers in the quarterfinals of the FA Cup.
What competition it is? FA Cup, Quarterfinals
Teams: Wolverhampton Wanderers and Manchester United
Kick Off: Saturday 17 March
Match Timing: 01:25 AM (IST)
Where the game is played?Molineux Stadium (31,700)
Wolves are making some right noise ever since they were promoted to the Premier League last season. Not only they have secured their safety but have done so long before they were expected to do so. As things stand, they are flying high, to say the least, sitting at a lofty 7th position on the table.
Now the Wolves can certainly turn their full attention towards the FA Cup tie against Manchester United. Despite United’s incredible history, the hosts are not underdogs by any means. They have knocked a big team in Liverpool out of this competition. This was just one of the many games where Wolves surprised the world with their approach against the big teams.
Manchester United, meanwhile, will enter this match on the back of some unique results last week. They climbed the mountain in the round-of-16 2nd leg match against PSG, as they came from a 0-2 deficit to win the tie 3-3 courtesy of their 1-3 away win at Parc des Princes.
That magnificent result was followed by a 0-2 away loss against Arsenal in the Premier League. However, the Red Devils remain in high-spirit following a turnaround under caretaker manager Ole Gunnar Solskajer.
United are very much in the race for the top-4 as things stand in the Premier League. With 58 points, they are 5th in the table, just three points behind 3rd placed Tottenham Hotspur.
