Man United Starting XI Prediction vs ASSE (Europa League)


Manchester United are looking to continue their UEFA Europa League hot streak as they visit St. Etiennne in the round of 32 Wednesday night. As you’ve already heard numerous times, this is the de facto Pogba Cup, as ASSE and Florentin Pogba host his brother Paul Pogba.

United won the Old Trafford leg 3-0, and so the Red Devils can pretty much coast in this one, and they’ll reach the UEL round of 16. United are also in line to potentially win a “plastic treble” (here’s more on that).


Here’s The Sports Bank’s Man United starting XI projection

Attack:  Marcus Rashford

Attacking Midfield:    Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Anthony Martial, Jesse Lingard

Midfield:  Michael Carrick,  Marouane Fellaini

Defense:   Ashley Young, Marcos Rojo, Chris Smalling, Matteo Darmian

Goalkeeper: Sergio Romero

Match Odds (via

Manchester United 5/4     draw 12/5      St. Etienne 53/20

Prediction: United 2, ASSE 2
