Saint Etienne (0) vs. (3) Manchester United: Europa League Last 32 Second Leg – Match Preview

Manchester United take a three goal advantage to France on Wednesday evening in the second leg of their Europa League tie.

A Zlatan Ibrahimovic hat-trick helped United to a rather unconvincing 3-0 success in the first leg at Old Trafford.

Etienne were beaten away at Montpellier on the weekend meaning they are four points adrift of fourth spot.

United edged past Blackburn Rovers in the FA Cup, coming from a goal down to win at Ewood Park and progress into the last eight of the competition.

Loic Perrin is a big doubt for Etienne after he missed the weekend loss against Montpellier with concussion.

United are likely to rotate the side here with one eye on the Capital One Cup final on Sunday afternoon.

The likes of Sergio Romero, Ashley Young and Bastian Schweinsteiger are all likely to be given chances.
