Manchester United face Juventus in an incredible fixture in the Champions League on Tuesday night. Cristiano Ronaldo could be in line to return to the Theatre of Dreams as Juventus look to continue their perfect start to the Champions League.
United were great in their 2-2 draw against Chelsea at the weekend. Only a last-second goal from Ross Barkley denied Jose Mourinho’s men the three points.
It will be interesting to see how we play against another quality side on Tuesday as currently, the champions league odds are against us in favour of 1/2.
Here is our predicted line-up for the Red Devils.
Predicted Manchester United XI
Manager: Jose Mourinho
David de Gea (GK)
The Spaniard hasn’t kept too many clean sheets this season for United but has to be in top form to keep Juve out.
Ashley Young (RB)
Young was brilliant in keeping Eden Hazard out of the game on Saturday. The Englishman will have to do a similar job as the right-back against the might of Juventus.
Victor Lindelof (CB)
It will be a tough outing for our central defenders, especially if they go up against Mario Mandzukic in the Juve attack.
Chris Smalling (CB)
Smalling will have a tough task to keep the away attackers in check. It will be a long night for the English defender.
Luke Shaw (LB)
Shaw has to be in top form on Tuesday night, and his attacking runs can be the difference in us unlocking the Juve defence.
Paul Pogba (CM)
Pogba wasn’t great in our draw against Chelsea but he needs to put in a quality performance at Old Trafford.
The Brazilian wasn’t played in our draw against the Blues but could get a start against the Old Lady.
Nemanja Matic (CM)
Matic had a decent game at Stamford Bridge and should start for us on Tuesday.
Anthony Martial (LW)
The Frenchman scored a brace in our 2-2 draw and could be the X Factor as we look to beat Ronaldo’s team.
Romelu Lukaku (ST)
Lukaku did a lot of running around at Stamford Bridge with no end product. The striker needs to have a greater impact if we are to do well against the Italian giants.
Marcus Rashford (RW)
Rashford’s pace should be a problem for the Juve defence to deal with, and the Englishman needs a good game for United too.
