Europa League Round of 32 second-leg match will kick off at Stade Geoffroy-Guichard this Wednesday at 17:00 GMT. The Reds built up a significant lead in last week’s first-leg clash at Old Trafford, with Zlatan Ibrahimovic‘s first hat-trick for the club enough to give Jose Mourinho‘s men a 3-0 win. While the evening belonged to United’s hitman, it was an emotional occasion for Paul Pogba, who lined up against his older brother Florentin, with his family watching on from the stands.
Jose Mourinho has confirmed David De Gea and Antonio Valencia were rested for Sunday’s FA Cup fifth-round victory at Blackburn, while Wayne Rooney and Phil Jones aren’t expected to be fit for this Europa League match. Meanwhile, Ander Herrera will play no part in the game; a yellow card in the first leg, his third in the competition this season, means he’s suspended. With the first-leg result, as well as this weekend’s EFL Cup final Southampton in mind.
The Reds have been hard at work ahead of tomorrow’s Europa League clash.
