Giuseppe Rossi is still recovering from a knee injury and is unlikely to play against his former team. Ruben Blanco and Planas are also injured and are expected to miss the match. Celta gave a rest to most of their top players in its match against Athletic Bilbao this weekend. Celta lost its last 3 games. In Europa League however, Celta has not lost in its last 5 games. Celta has no commitments in the championship and will concentrate entirely on these two games against Manchester United.
Paul Pogba, Eric Bailey and Phil Jones renewed training before this game, but will not be ready for a full 90 minutes on the pitch. However, United's problems are not over. Permanently injured are Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Markos Rojo and Luke Show. Juan Mata is also not in very good shape. Manchester United has no losses in their last 8 Europa League matches. Mourinho can not underestimate this match, although on Sunday United have to play against Arsenal at “Emirates”.
Interesting facts about the match:
Manchester United's last 5 matches in Europa League have ended with less than 2.5 goals.
Manchester United has not lost in their last 8 games in Europa League.
Celta has not lost in the last 5 games in Europa League.
Manchester United has 2 wins and 2 draws in its last 4 away games in Europa League.
The situation in both teams is not rosy. Manchester United has a very tough schedule by the end of the season and should be on a steady level until Celta can concentrate entirely on Europe League. This gives them some advantage, especially in the first game, when they can surprise United on their own field.
