Manchester United vs Wigan Prediction 29 January 2017

Tournament: FA Cup
Location: Old Trafford Stadium
Match date: 29.01.2017 at 16:00

On January 29 2017 at the Old Trafford Stadium the local Manchester United play against Wigan Athletic in the regular game of the fourth round of the English FA Cup.

Even though Manchester United show more attractive performance compared to the previous season, the Results of the Red Devils still don’t let them stay in the race for winning the league. They drew Stoke City in the latest game and it let them gain 41 points with 33:21 goal difference and stay on the 6th position in the standings. On Thursday MU played the second leg semifinal game of the League Cup against Hull City where they lost 2:1, yet that was enough to make it to the next round with 2:3 goal difference after two semifinal games. Now they are going to meet Southampton in the final match of that competition.

As for Wigan, they show really bad results in the English Football League Championship where they have to try hard to stay in the league. Yet, they have in pretty good conditions lately as they won three latest games in a row. In those games Wigan won against Brentford 2:1, Burton Albion 0:2 and Nottingham Forest in the FA Cup 2:0.

The history of the head-to-heads of the teams and the results of the latest games show the advantage last time the teams met in August 2013 and Manchester United won 2:0 in the Community Shield. Manchester United won all ten of the latest ten home games played against Wigan and they only conceded one goal in those matches. Moreover, there was only one game when they scored less than two goals. That’s why we think that in the upcoming game the hosts will probably win with at least 2 goals difference.
