Manchester United travel to Germany for the final group match against RB Leipzig in the Champions League this week.

Manchester United, RB Leipzig and Paris Saint-Germain are all capable of reaching the knockout rounds of the competition and the Red Devils will be desperate to secure a victory Tuesday night.

All three teams have tallied 9 points in the group stage so far and it remains to be seen which two teams come out winning.

RB Leipzig come into this match after a thrilling 4-3 win over Istanbul Basaksehir and they will love their chance against the Premier League team at home.

Furthermore, the last time these two teams met, Manchester United took a 5-0 win over the German team and the hosts will be looking to avenge their loss this week.

RB Leipzig will be without Lukas Klostermann, Konrad Laimer and Benjamin Henrichs due to injury problems.

Dayot Upamecano is suspended for the locals.

Manchester United will not have the injured Anthony Martial and Edinson Cavani for this game.

Brazilian midfielder Fred is suspended.

It will be interesting to see how Ole Gunnar Solskjaer prepares his attack for this game with Marcus Rashford and Mason Greenwood as the only forwards at his disposal.

The Manchester United manager will be forced to make two changes to the side that beat West Ham. Both Martial and Cavani took hits in that game. Rashford and Fernandes are expected to replace them on the side that beat the Hammers.
