Rostov Vs Man United Prediction: Result Prediction, Expected Lineups & Formation

Manchester United head to Russia for their Europa League game against Rostov. The players who haven’t traveled with the squad are Wayne Rooney, Luke Shaw and Bastian Schweinsteiger. Zlatan Ibrahimovic has been banned for three games by the FA for violent conduct so we can expect Zlatan to start both the legs in the Europa League.

Man United Vs Rostov Prediction Europa League

Manchester United is expected to lineup in a 4-3-3 formation with Pogba, Carrick and Herrera expected to be the midfield three. The Europa League is a very important competition for Manchester United as their Premier League form has been very poor and their chances of qualifying for the Champions League via the league looks very difficult. Rostov will prove to be a very difficult team to beat especially in Russia where they have already beaten Bayern Munich this season.

Man United vs Rostov Prediction – Starting Lineups

FC Rostov: Medvedev, Kalachev, Mevlja, Cesar Navas, Granat, Kudryashov, Erokhin, Gatcan, Noboa, Bukharov, Azmoun

Manchester United: De Gea, Valencia, Smalling, Bailly, Rojo Herrera, Carrick, Pogba, Rashford, Martial, Ibrahimovic

Man United vs Rostov Result Prediction

Manchester United will be happy with a draw in the first leg, so Mourinho will opt for a defensive approach in this game. We can expect a scoring draw.

Result Prediction

FC Rostov 1-1 Manchester United

Jose Mourinho will be hoping for a positive reaction to the draw against ten men Bournemouth which was a glorious opportunity for Man United to reduce the gap to the fourth position and finally move out of sixth. Another big blow for United is the loss of Zlatan for three games which includes the FA Cup tie against Chelsea. Wayne Rooney who has been in terrible form this season needs to step up and share the goal scoring burden with other attacking players like Martial, Mata and Rashford in Zlatan’s absence.
