Europa League: Berizzo to start same team as the one that played Manchester United in the first leg

Eduardo Berizzo will stick with the same eleven to the one that started against United in Balaidos and will be hoping for a better performance
Manchester United v. Manchester City live online

Berizzo, entrenador del Celta.

Celta Vigo are playing one of the biggest game in their history on Thursday night and Eduardo Berizzo has been aware of that for a number of weeks. With that in mind, he has been holding back many of his starters to ensure they are refreshed and ready for the tie against United at Old Trafford. AS can report that Berizzo will start with the same eleven that was chosen for the first leg at Balaidos.

Aspas, Guidetti and Sisto will lead the line for Celta while Wass Radoja and 'Tucu' Hernandez will make up the midfield. Hernandez has recovered from lower back pain to make the first eleven. Gustavo Cabral and Roncangli will be given the job of stopping United's front man, most likely Marcus Rashford, while Hugo Mallo and Jonny will be tasked with causing problems from the flanks while ensuring the spaces behind them aren't exploited. Sergio Alvarez will play in goals.

Mourinho's first choice eleven

Celta Vigo need to score in order to get to the final and Mourinho might call on a similar eleven to the one that got a 1-0 victory in Spain last Thursday. He still has no Ibrahimovic, Shaw, Rojo or Fosu-Mensah and Ashley Young joined the injured list recently too. The only real question is whether Blind will continue to partner Bailly at the centre of defense with the return of Smalling last weekend as well as Phil Jones.
