Manchester United finished the group phase of the UEFA Europa League at the second position, so they will face St Etienne in the knock-out phase of this competition. Home side weren’t too much interested in Europa League, so their manager play in some matches with mixed squad, but now they will be fully motivated to win it. As you know, the winner will qualify in the Champions League directly, while Jose Mourinho‘s men are standing at the 6th position in Premier League. They still have a chance to finish at the Top 4 in their domestic championship, but they now want to eliminated French team and qualify in the next round. Their top scorer, Zlatan Ibrahimović, had played many matches against St Ettiene with big success. He scored 14 goals in 13 games against French team, so he will be fully motivated to continue hitting the net. Home side is a favorite to reach the next phase, so they want to finish the job in the 1st leg.
In home team Pereira is injured, while Jones is doubtful, but he will probably miss this game. On the other side, visitors will be without Soderlund, Tannane and M’Bengue.
