Tiger Fighting on October 2 The draw of the UEFA Champions League group stage for the new season ended yesterday, and Manchester United were finally placed in the same group with Paris, Leipzig Red Bull and Istanbul. Paris and Leipzig Red Bull are the teams that reached the Champions League semi-finals last season, and this group is also known as the dead group. However, Hargreaves said that Manchester United can advance to the top 16 of the Champions League.
Hargreaves said: "I think Manchester United should feel confident about reaching the top sixteen, and it is quite confident.
"They are not in the best condition at the moment and hope to bring in a few more players. This is certainly not an ideal group, but I hope they can complete a few more signings, find the status, and finally strive to qualify for the group first. If not, the first Two is fine too."
Former Tottenham coach Hoddle also talked about the team situation of Manchester United: "I think Manchester United is placed in the most difficult group. There is no doubt that there are some anxious matches waiting for them. There is also something for sure. Yes, they are working hard to sign some players. I hope they can complete some signings before the transfer window closes."
"We haven't seen Manchester United in the best form. The Manchester United at the end of last season really played very well. At that time, their offensive and defensive midfielders were very balanced. All they have to do is to get that feeling back. I believe them. Can do this too."
"Generally speaking, Manchester United will face greater pressure than other teams.
"Can they win the championship? I don't think so. But if that is the case, the pressure will be much less."
Chelsea's E group, opponents are Sevilla, Krasnodar and Rennes.
