4-2-3-1 including Depay: Predicted Manchester United line-up to play Wolfsburg

Champions league cup

Here is how we predict Manchester United and Wolfsburg will line up later this week:

To be played on Tuesday 8th December 2015 at 19:45. Venue: Volkswagen-Arena,

Odds: Wolfsburg 11/8, Draw 23/10, Man Utd 2/1

Manchester United’s next match could define their entire season, as they head to Germany knowing they must equal or better PSV Eindhoven’s result against CSKA Moscow to ensure they reach the Champions League knockout stages.

With the Dutch club expected to beat the Russians at home, that would leave United needing to overcome Wolfsburg in their own backyard and that is no easy prospect.

To make matters worse for United, they are struggling in front of goal right now and their 0-0 draw against West Ham United on Saturday would not have given any of the club’s fans much optimism heading into this vital fixture.

In early team news, United are without Luke Shaw, Marcos Rojo, Phil Jones, Antonio Valencia, Ander Herrera and Wayne Rooney, while manager Louis van Gaal also has doubts regarding Morgan Schneiderlin and Paddy McNair.

As for PSV, they must do without Jetro Willems and Menno Koch while Maxime Lestienne is doubtful.
