After a string of horrendous displays, David de Gea managed to redeem himself with a relatively decent outing against PSG to see him be our pick as the goal-keeper for the day’s contest.
Akin to the foregone season, RB Leipzig’s defensive setup has once again emerged as the foundation of their consummate defence. The side’s backline might have worked in the backdrop but its performances have by no means been lowkey.
The club has let in a meagre 3 goals till now in the Bundesliga to see us reign in a duo from the club for this one. Its one comprising of Dayot Upamecano and Marcel Halstenberg while Manchester United see us rope in Aaron Wan-Bissaka for the tie.
When you have VAR at your side, its extremely easy to swing decisions your way. There’s a clear prejudice in Manchester United’s favour when it comes to refereeing decisions, one which saw the club being awarded a penalty when they took on PSG the last time around.
With Bruno Fernandes converting it, he becomes our only pick from the club in this slot. RB Leipzig on the other hand see us indulge in the services of wingback Angelino who has been critical in the side’s attacking plays with him scoring twice for the club the last time around.
Kevin Kampl and Christopher Nkunku who assisted one of those goals apiece join up from the side with Emil Forsberg who has the two goals and one assist completing the quartet from the club.
Striker Yusuf Poulsen has scored twice for the club in the Bundesliga to see him link up while Manchester United see us opt for Marcus Rashford after his goal for the club against PSG the last time around.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Bruno’s penalty sees him be our captain while Angelino is the vice-captain.
David, Aaron, Dayot, Marcel, Bruno, Kevin, Nkunku, Emil, Angelino, Rashford, Poulsen
