Galatasaray vs Man Utd Lineups and Last Match

Galatasaray

Last time out in the Champions League, Galatasaray made the trip to Germany to face Bayern Munich. The two teams made it through to the last ten minutes before the deadlock was broken by who else but Harry Kane. Kane scored again six minutes later and although Galatasaray pulled a goal back in stoppage time, the damage had already been done and the Turkish side lost 2-1. Okan Buruk's squad has no fresh injury concerns or suspended players ahead of Wednesday's match following the comfortable 4-0 hammering of Alanyaspor on Saturday.

Predicted Lineup – Muslera (GK), Ayhan, Bardakcı, Sánchez, Angeliño, Boey, Ziyech, Torreira, Zaha, Icardi & Aktürkoğlu

Man Utd

Man Utd played out a seven-goal thriller in Copenhagen in their last European game, losing the match 4-3. Two goals from Rasmus Højlund saw the Red Devils leading 2-0 before the half-hour mark but the teams would go in level at the interval. Erik ten Hag's side got back in front through Bruno Fernandes in the sixty-ninth minute only for two late goals to win the game for Copenhagen. Marcus Rashford was sent-off in the first half of that game and will not be available for Wednesday's clash along with Mason Mount, Christian Eriksen, Jonny Evans, Casemiro, Lisandro Martinez and Tyrell Malacia all of whom have injuries.

Predicted Lineup – Onana (GK), Lindelöf, Maguire, Dalot, Shaw, Amrabat, Fernandes, McTominay, Martial, Garnacho & Pellistri

Player to Watch: Alejandro Garnacho

Following his probably goal-of-the-season at Goodison Park on Sunday, we've picked out Argentina teenager Garnacho as our player to watch in this game.

Garnacho is likely to start against Galatasaray due to Rashford being suspended and after his spectacular overhead kick against Everton, how could he be left out?

This is a game that Man Utd really have to win to give themselves a sporting chance of qualifying for the knockout stage and failure to do so would be a huge disappointment. Garnacho hasn't scored or created any goals in the Champions League this season but we're backing the youngster to impress on Wednesday night following that stunning goal against Everton.
