Europa League preview: Manchester United v FC Rostov

Ibrahimovic is back in the team tonight

Manchester United continue their Europa League campaign tonight with a home tie against Russian side FC Rostov at Old Trafford. The teams are level at 1-1 after the first leg, with the winner progressing to the quarter finals. 



Manchester United are without Wayne Rooney, who was left out of the England squad that was announced today, but he may return for the Red Devils at the weekend. Zlatan Ibrahimovic comes back into the team, after sitting out the FA Cup defeat to Chelsea as part of his three match ban. The visitors will be pushing for a shock tonight, and if United are not on their game, the Russians may just fancy their chances. However, Rostov are able to name just four substitutes in their matchday squad. 

Here are the lineups for the Europa League round of sixteen second leg between Manchester United and FC Rostov:

Manchester United: Romero, Bailly, Smalling, Rojo, Valencia, Herrera, Pogba, Blind, Mata, Mkhitaryan, Ibrahimovic

Substitutes: De Gea, Jones, Lingard, Carrick, Young, Rashford, Fellaini

FC Rostov: Medvedev, Bayramyan, Melvja, Navas, Kudryashov, Terentjev, Noboa, Prepelita, Erokhin, Azmoun, Poloz

Substitutes: Kireev, Bukharov, Devic, Goshev
