Van gaals “reds” welcome Wolfsburg when the both teams clash at old trafford on wednesday the 30th of september in a champions league groupstage game. This game is really a must win for Manchester United to establish themselves in the group following their previous defeat to PSV Eindhoven and things are looking bright for the reds who will be coming into this game with everything to prove to their fans. Wolfsburg on the other hand will be looking to redeem themselves since their recent defeat in bundesliga versus Bayern Munich, a game in which Lewandowski scored 5 times in 9 minutes.
Wolfsburg will be coming into this game with 3 victories, 1 defeat and 1 draw in their latest 5 games. They are currently tied for first place in group b of the champions league following a 1-0 victory at home versus CSKA Moskva and they are placed 4th in the Bundesliga with an away record of 0 victories, 2 draws and 1 defeat. Wolfsburg will have the following players injuried for this game: Luiz Gustavo, Robin Knoche, Vieirinha, Felipe Lopes and with the status of Koen Casteels looking uncertain.
Projected line up: (12) Dost, (11) Kruse, (10) Draxler, (7) Caligiuri, (23) Guilavogui, (22) Luiz Gusta, (34) Rodríguez, (15) Träsch, (18) Dante, (25) Naldo, (1) Benaglio
Manchester United will be coming into this game with 3 victories and 2 defeats in their latest 5 games. They are currently 3rd in group B of the champions league following their 2-1 away defeat against PSV Eindhoven. The reds are currently second in the premier league with only 2 points up to the leaders machester city, things are looking very good for manchester united even though they had some major changes with Van Persie leaving for Fenerbache, Di Maria leaving for PSG and with the acquisition of Martial, Schweinsteiger, Schneiderling and Victor Valdes.
Anthony Martial has really started to make a name for himself over in England and this will be the 19 year olds second chance to prove himself for his team on the european scene aswell. United will have Mcnair, Shaw and Rojo injuried for this game but with their strong troop this should not be worrying at all.
Projected line up: (1) De Gea, (25) Valencia A, (12) Smalling, (17) Blind, (18) Young, (31) Schweinsteiger, (21) Herrera, (8) Mata, (10) Rooney, (44) Pereira, (27) Fellaini
