Predicted Man United line-up to face Juventus in the Champions League
Manchester United will travel to Turin to take on Juventus in a crunch Champions League clash at the Allianz Stadium on Wednesday.
The Red Devils are currently second in Group H but well behind Juventus, who defeated the Premier League giants 1-0 at Old Trafford a fortnight ago.
Manchester United are in a good run of form in the Premier League lately and Jose Mourinho is likely to go all out against Serie A champions Juventus.
Romelu Lukaku could miss the Juventus game due to a muscle injury he sustained in the training that also saw him miss United’s 2-1 victory at Bournemouth.
The game in Turin could also come a bit early for the likes of Diogo Dalot and Marouane Fellaini, while Antonio Valencia is still out injured with a knee problem.
