To speak generally both clubs are not in their best shape, one couldn’t recuperate from great Manchester City defeat (0:6), despite the recent Chelsea won over Malmo (2:1), the another was on Paris Saint-Germain’s heel at Old Trafford in the first match of the Champions League Last 16.

This defeat became the first one for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as Manchester United manager on the ⅓ of the way. More than likely they will go out of the CL, but the main question is whether they will get into the top 4.

One shouldn’t exclude that it is possible the following scenario, where one of the teams sacrifices the cup tournament to focus on something, more important, for example for Manchester United it’s getting in the TOP-4 at the end of the season, and as for Chelsea – to win in Europa League (getting the right to play next season in the Champions League), or at least a place in TOP-4
It’s important to mention, that both clubs have already met this season in England and drew 2:2.
