Confirmed lineups: RB Leipzig vs Man Utd

Manchester United need to avoid defeat in Germany this evening in order to qualify for the knockout stages of this season’s Champions League.

We hammered the Bundesliga outfit 5-0 at Old Trafford back in October, but Julian Nagelsmann’s side have picked up greatly since, holding Bayern Munich to a 3-3 draw this past weekend as they sit second in the table.

Two defeats from three since leave us required a result this evening.

The two teams are confirmed as:

Manchester United

David de Gea; Victor Lindelof, Harry Maguire, Luke Shaw; Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Scott McTominay, Nemanja Matic, Alex Telles, Bruno Fernandes; Mason Greenwood, Marcus Rashford

Substitutes: Dean Henderson, Lee Grant, Timothy Fosu-Mensah, Axel Tuanzebe, Eric Bailly, Brandon Williams, Donny van de Beek, Paul Pogba, Jesse Lingard, Daniel James, Juan Mata, Odion Ighalo

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has reverted to a back three this evening with Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Alex Telles moving into wingback roles.

Scott McTominay and Nemanja Matic will sit in front of the back four with Fred suspended. Paul Pogba and Donny van de Beek are both options from the bench.

Anthony Martial and Edinson Cavani are both ruled out with injuries picked up in the victory at West Ham United on Sunday. Mason Greenwood supports Marcus Rashford up front.

RB Leipzig

Peter Gulacsi; Nordi Mukiele, Ibrahima Konate, Willi Orban; Amadou Haidara, Marcel Sabitzer, Kevin Kampl, Angelino; Emil Forsberg, Dani Olmo, Christopher Nkunku

Substitutes: Philipp Tschauner, Josep Martinez, Marcel Halstenberg, Eric Martel, Tyler Adams, Joscha Wosz, Justin Kluivert, Yussuf Poulsen, Alexander Sorloth

The hosts have lost just one of their 10 Bundesliga matches this season and a stoppage time win in Istanbul last week puts them level on points with us and Paris Saint-Germain heading into this final game.

Dani Olmo will play as the striker, supported by Christopher Nkunku and Emil Forsberg in a front three.

Julian Nagelsmann also lines up with a back three with two goalscorers in central midfield in Kevin Kampl and Marcel Sabitzer.
