Manchester United Vs Marseille: 'Confident' Giggs Looking To Show 'Class' Against Marseille

March 15, 2011 By Keesh Sundaresan
Confidence looks to be high at Old Trafford after their triumph over Arsenal and Ryan Giggs has delivered a bad news to Didier Deschamps's men: ' We will show our class'
Manchester United only managed a goalless draw against French champion in the first leg which at the State Velodrome- a result that even left Dir Alex Ferguson admitting that it was a dangerous one. Then came the pile of gigantic fixtures that saw United lose two matches in succession against Liverpool and Chelsea.

However, the Devils returned to winning ways against Arsenal last weekend and Ryan Giggs believes that confidence is back a high level around Old Trafford as they prepare to host Marseille tonight.

"At Old Trafford we back ourselves against anyone,'' said Giggs. "It is going to be tough. It is the Champions League and 0-0 is always a sticky scoreline because we know if they score an away goal we will have to get two. What we need to do is get one and then pile on the goals to negate the possibility of an away one.''

"Marseille were quite solid in the first leg but they didn't risk anything,'' said Giggs.”They were probably afraid to concede an away goal. As a consequence, we didn't get into our rhythm like we know we can. The pitch was a bit uneven so our passing wasn't as crisp and the tempo wasn't what Manchester United are used to. We defended well but overall it wasn't the best of games. I am sure this one will be better.''

As Sir Alex prepares for this match, a number of injury concerns have risen up with Nemanja Vidic doubtful after suffering a knock in yesterdays training session. However, there is some bright news for the Devils with Nani set to feature against Marseille after making a quick return from his injury.
