Cluj’s qualification is dependent on the match at braga, but they still need to win, however, United tend to try out some different playing 11 as qualification to the round of 16 is secured for them.
Cluj are playing for a lot this evening as they need to win at old Trafford in order to qualify to the next round for the first time in their football club’s history provided that Galatasaray fail to win against Fc Braga as they are level on points with the Turkish club. As they have already booked their place in the Europa League’s round of 32, Cluj are ahead of galatasaray on head-to-head basis given that they shock United tonight. Bakary Sare and Ronny will remain sidelined but Ciprian Deac and Adam Vass have been healed but are ineligible to play tonight’s match.
Manchester United on the other hand, have completed the task of qualifying for the next round being the leaders of Group H which makes it easier for Sir Alex Ferguson to give the younger players the chance to get the real experience. Manchester United who are missing out on their captain Nemanja Vidic will still not be risked in this fixture as the Red Devils face their local rivals City at the weekend. Nick Powell and Scott Wootton could be included in this clash as they haven’t gotten much of the playing time on the field. Can Sir Alex manage to pull out 3 points from this game without losing any of his key players ahead of the Manchester derby or will Cluj shock the fans at Old Trafford tonight?
