Manchester United hope to book a place in the last eight of the UEFA Europa League when they take travel to Spain to take on Real Betis for their second leg round of 16 tie.
The Red Devils swept past Manuel Pellegrini’s side 4-1 at Old Trafford last Thursday, just days after they were embarrassed by Liverpool 7-0 in the Premier League.
Marcus Rashford, Antony, Bruno Fernandes and Wout Weghorst were on target for United in what was an impressive outing in the circumstances, though it’s not job done yet against a Betis side who are more than capable of beating top tier opposition on their day.
Real Betis team news
The Spaniards will be without Luis Felipe, Nabil Fekir and Juan Cruz for the visit of United.
Sergio Canales could force his way back into the starting lineup after returning from injury, and he could potentially oust veteran winger Joaquin from the side that started at Old Trafford.
Real Betis predicted lineup (4-2-3-1):
Bravo; Sabaly, Pezzella, Ruiz, Miranda; Carvalho, Rodriguez; Canales, Perez, Juanmi; Iglesias
Man Utd team news
Erik ten Hag has a number of considerations to factor in for second leg team selection.
Anthony Martial is back in training but will not be rushed into action, while the extent of Marcel Sabitzer’s recent injury is not yet known. Alejandro Garnacho is sidelined, however, and has hinted in a social media post that he expects to be out for the foreseeable future.
Casemiro and Bruno Fernandes are each one yellow card away from a Europa League suspension, so the former may be afforded a spot on the bench even though he’s banned for four domestic games after his second Premier League red card of the season.
Man Utd predicted lineup (4-2-3-1):
De Gea; Dalot, Lindelof, Maguire, Malacia; McTominay, Fred; Antony, Fernandes, Sancho; Weghorst
