Manchester United will take on Barcelona as they travel to Camp Nou on Thursday night for the Europa League contest. The Red Devils come into the match on the back of a 2-0 victory over Leeds United, so they will be looking to produce a similar result. On the other hand, the Catalan club recorded a narrow 1-0 victory over Villareal in their last outing and thus we can expect them to give a better performance in this home encounter.

Erik ten Hag will set his side up in a 4-2-3-1 formation and could make a few changes to his first XI for this game. Both Marcel Sabitzer and Lisandro Martinez are suspended for the European contest while Casemiro is likely to make his way back into the starting XI.

David de Gea will function in between the sticks for the Mancunian outfit after securing a clean sheet in his last outing. Raphael Varane will operate alongside Harry Maguire at the centre of the Man United backline as they look to keep Barca at bay this midweek.

Diogo Dalot will play as the right-back while Luke Shaw hopes to produce an energetic performance as the left-back. Both of them will get the license to get forward and join in on the attack out on the wide areas.

Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Tyrell Malacia will take a spot on the bench to provide cover for the full-back positions.


Fred and Casemiro will function as the holding midfielders as they look to dominate the game at the centre of the park and orchestrate some clear-cut chances in the final third.

Scott McTominay and Christian Eriksen are unlikely to recover in time for this game. However, Kobbie Mainoo and Zidane Iqbal will be available for selection on the bench as they await their chance to shine as the impact substitutes in the second half if needed.


Marcus Rashford, Bruno Fernandes and Alejandro Garnacho will operate just ahead of them as part of ten Hag’s attack. Rashford will have to carry most of the goal-scoring workload for Man United in the final third while Fernandes acts as ten Hag’s primary playmaker.

Wout Weghorst will spearhead Man United’s attack in the final third. He will be expected to work hard and produce a good performance for the Red Devils up top.

Anthony Martial and Antony are doubtful for this contest, so ten Hag’s attacking options on the bench will be limited.
