Casemiro returns: Predicted Manchester United line-up for heavyweight clash with Barcelona

Erik ten Hag and his men will be making the trip to Spain to face an in-form Barcelona side this week.

The two European heavyweights will meet in a Europa League Round of 16 play-off tie, with the first leg taking place at the Camp Nou. The sides will then tackle the second leg at Old Trafford on February 23, meaning the Reds will have their faithful home supporters roaring them on to see out a win.

In terms of form, both United and Barcelona have been outstanding as of late. The Spaniards sit firmly on top of La Liga with an 11-point cushion over rivals Real Madrid. They are also unbeaten in 16 games.

On the other hand, Manchester United are the only English team that remain in contention for all four competitions. They are in third place in the Premier League and have a trip to Wembley booked for February 26, where they’ll take on Newcastle United in the Carabao Cup final.

Ten Hag and Xavi will know the Europa League provides an achievable prospect of silverware as they continue to build their respective projects.

Predicted lineup:

De Gea

Dalot, Varane, Shaw, Malacia

Casemiro, Fred 

Sancho, Fernandes (C), Rashford


Lisandro Martinez and Marcel Sabitzer are unavailable for selection in the first leg due to suspension, whilst Antony, Scott McTominay and Anthony Martial are all doubts through injury.
