Benfica v Manchester United - Early Team News

Benfica v Manchester United - Early Team News

Manchester United resume their Group 'A` qualifying campaign with a trip to Lisbon to take on Benfica this Wednesday evening.

With a 100% record in Group 'A` after beating both Basel and CSKA Moscow in the opening two fixtures, Manchester United are on the verge of qualifying for the knockout stages of the competition.

However, as we approach this fixture, Jose Mourinho`s squad is still suffering from injuries with the boss declaring about his starting eleven:

'It is easy to guess'

Out of contention for this game are:

• Paul Pogba
• Marouane Fellaini
• Eric Bailly
• Zlatan Ibrahimovic

Whilst the following duo are almost but not quite ready for action:

• Marcos Rojo
• Luke Shaw

Have Manchester United, despite those absentees, still got in their locker to beat Benfica?

I reckon so!
