With Manchester United traveling to Germany knowing they must get a win to guarantee qualification for the knockout stages this game is finely balanced and set up to be a cracker. Wolfsburg hold home advantage and a one point lead in the group so a draw is enough to guarantee the Germans safe passage to the knockout stages. If PSV fail to beat CSKA then a draw would also be good enough for Manchester United but they must think that PSV will win at home and therefore must try to get all three points here. Manchester United are struggling for goals at the moment having drawn their last three games and scoring just one over those three games, in addition they have lost Wayne Rooney to an ankle injury and alot of pressure will now be placed on the young shoulders of Anthony Martial.
Wolfsburg for their part have three wins in the group and their impressive win in Moscow last time out is what set them up for qualification. Andre Schurrle is the key man for Wolfsburg at the moment with Draxler and Dost also major contributers. Wolfsburg though lost at the weekend to Borussia Dortmund and have come undone a few times this season when facing top class sides. With Dante and Naldo at the back they occasionally get caught over playing the ball and tomorrow they will face a tough team who can expose weakness' if they play well.
Simply put Van Gaal must send his team out to win tomorrow night, I think that means the pace of Depay and Martial up top with Mata, Herrera, Carrick and Schweinsteiger in the center. For me this is United's best line up and I am going to take them to get the win , more out of necessity than confidence in the manager. I think his hand is being forced with injuries and it will just line up correctly for United to finally have their best team on the field. Take Manchester United to get that much needed win.
