Manchester United vs Braga takes place Tuesday in the Champions League with United looking to open up their European campaign with three straight wins. All the action from Old Trafford can be seen from 2.45 p.m. ET and can be watched online through live stream (details below).
United are in control of Group H with two wins from two games so far. However, their performances have not been as dominant as they might have liked. A 1-0 win against Galatasaray was unconvincing, and their 2-1 win over CFR Cluj-Napoca will not have struck fear into the likes of Barcelona and Bayern Munich.
Sir Alex Ferguson, however, knows the value of results, and even though the performances have not been great in Europe so far, they have got the job done and have a maximum six points out of six.
Braga sit joint second in the group after one win from their two games so far. They will not make things easy for Alex Ferguson's men, and will for sure get players behind the ball and would definitely be happy with a draw from this encounter.
The Portuguese side have a number of exciting players, and even though they will want to try and keep United out, they are not a side fearful of exploding up the field to try and score. If it can be a high-scoring end to end game, Braga would be happy to take their chances.
Manchester United are coming into this game in some good form, they have won three consecutive games since losing to Tottenham at the end of September. In those three wins their cumulative score has been 9-3.
Ferguson could be tempted to have one eye on United's back-to-back matches against Chelsea in the coming week, but he will know all too well that United have to keep focus and pick up the points from today's game if United are to avoid an early exit like last year's embarrassment.
