Giggs Could Be The Difference Against Marseille

United need their old pro at his best

Ryan Giggs could be the difference on a European night where experience, talent and raw enthusiasm will be the key.

Giggs has been enjoying yet another solid season in the Premier League where he has responded to every single challenge that has been thrown his way. Giggs played a large number of league games over the winter period before having a brief rest and he should be back for this tie.

Giggs will take his natural position down the left of the team as Park Ji-Sung is still out of action with a hamstring injury. Giggs doesn’t have the pace that he once enjoyed but this shouldn’t have a major impact on the way he plays as he is productive in more than one way.

Giggs makes up for his lack of pace with intelligent positioning and using the players around him. Giggs is playing just in front of one of the best left-backs in Europe and Patrice Evra is more than capable of using his own pace to create the gaps for Giggs to race into.

United cannot be in any doubt that Marseille will be up for the match because they will want some form of advantage to take back to Old Trafford. Sir Alex Ferguson will get two or three of his most experienced players around the pitch to keep the rest of the side calm and to ensure that this doesn’t happen.

Giggs is also going to come into play when United get free kicks and set plays around the Marseille penalty area that favour his left foot. He has hit thousands of free kicks during his time as a professional, some more successful than others. This means that he could make the difference with one kick of the ball in a tight game.

The Welsh winger is very good at coming off of the flanks to get involved in the midfield play. His ball retention and creativity has been praised by some of the best players who have played and are still currently playing football. This creativity will be vital for the likes of Wayne Rooney and Dimitar Berbatov in the United attack.

Giggs is a best price of 16/1 to score first and 7/1 to score at any time.
