Valencia vs Man United: Marcelino faces unhappy Mestalla

Valencia vs Man United: Marcelino faces unhappy Mestalla

Valencia boss Marcelino will face the wrath of the home fans against Manchester United on Wednesday evening.

The Spanish coach has seen his side struggle domestically this term, having won just three of their opening 15 games which leaves them sitting dangerously close to the bottom of the La Liga table.

Focus may not be on the Champions League anymore but it could be that Marcelino uses this fixture to win back some of those supporters and board members, whom he lost at the weekend.

The dreaded vote of confidence has been giving to the Los Che boss and his players are fully aware of the pressure they will be under at the Mestalla.

Man United have already qualified but in truth, they have not been playing well under Jose Mourinho. A win for them and defeat or a draw for Juventus – would see them finish top of the group.

Team News

Jose Gaya is suspended for Valencia, while Daniel Parejo, Carlos Soler and Geoffrey Kondogbia are one booking away from a one-match ban in the Champions League.

For United, Mourinho confirmed on Saturday that ouf of favour midfielder Paul Pogba will start against Valencia. Other players like Antonio Valencia, Sergio Romero, Andreas Pereira, Eric Bailly, Fred and Marcos Rojo will likely also start, though Bailly is a doubt.

Valencia: Neto, Piccini, Garay, Diakhaby, Lato, Guedes, Kondogbia, Parejo, Soler, Mina, Batshuayi

Man United: De Gea, Valencia, Bailly, Jones, Rojo, Fred, Pereira, Pogba, Mata, Lukaku, Rashford
