    Tomorrow is a massive conflict of interests for most of the Caf. I predict an excruciating evening on the couch for most and that some may not make it. Good luck everyone.
    Why is it a conflict of interest?

    I would prefer:

    -----------------------------DeGea----------------------------
    Lindalof----------------Tuanzebe-------------Maguire
    AWB---------------McT----------Fred--------------Telles
    Greenwood/Mata------DeBeek--------Rashford
    ------------------------------Martial--------------------------

    (60min sub Carvani for Martial if his performance is below par)

    12 players should do it!

    Huge game I wouldn't get too experimental. If we win this theres a good chance for resting and rotation on final 2 gameweeks.

    I expect to see something similar to psg but would like to see VDB start

    We definitely don’t want to drop Bruno for this fixture — a tough CL early in the group stage. Drop him for a middling league opponent, after we’ve got to 10 points in the group stage or when he needs a break, but not now.

    What the hell?

    Lads, he'll probably play next week but he's not getting a game against Leipzig in the Champions League unless De Gea's leg has fallen off.
    The forum is about who we want to see play as well as those who type who they think will play. Yes Ole will go with De Gea but I would like to see Hendo be our champions league keeper.

    Nagelsmann is a Bayern fan. He just said in his presser that as soon as he sees Solskjaer he’s going to slide tackle him. (Revenge for 99’)

    People really do that? I'm sure it will be special for every pro when he goes there for the first time.
    Unfortunately so!

    Fair enough, but I suppose I expect them to be somewhat grounded in reality and it's never going to happen.CL Keeper isn't even a thing.

    You have a cup keeper for the cups you don't care about or the early games but your first choice keeper's playing in the big CL games.

    Leipzig sometimes play 3 at the back in a 3-4-2-1 formation, and I can see them going with this for on Wednesday seeking to explore the room on sides with Bissaka

    ...........
    I get the feeling Bruno needs a rest. Perhaps, on the bench.
    He had 4 days rest already, and the season just started. I don´t expect much rotation for this game, and I´m 100% Fernandes will start.

    ...................... De Gea

    Bissaka - Lindelöf - Maguire - Shaw

    ........... Fred - McTominay

    ... Mata - Fernandes - Rashford

    ................... Martial

    Subs:
    Fred > Pogba
    Mata > Greenwood
    Shaw > Telles

    Hasn't Bruno been playing non stop including the international games? We have depth in midfield for us to run an integral player into the ground by starting him every single game, especially when they're coming every other day.

    We're well stocked up in midfield to be overplaying anyone in that position.
    We also have strong squad depth for this

    Just hope Telles & Wan Bissaka aren't injured as apparently they weren't seen in the pre game training pics

    Caf logic -Romero played all the EL group games last season so Henderson will play against anyone that isn’t called PSG

    This is a very interesting game to watch. RB are the quintessential well-coached team playing against United. I hope Ole holds his own and we beat them. Would be a very clear sign of progress.

    I think we will stuff them after a poor start. James will destroy them on the counter. with or without the ball they will be not be able to stop his running.

    Manchester Utd never lose, just run out of time
    This is the most difficult line-up to pick that I can remember. Normally there are 7 or 8 players who are near-certainties, but Ole could do anything in this game. Especially in midfield where I literally just changed out the three I originally had for the three that I had on the bench, and chances are I'll change it again.

    We should not rotate in this game. A win and we will be very close to clearing the group and we can afford to rotate in later games. On the other hand, a loss would nullify the PSG result and leave a rather difficult task to get 2W 1D out of 4 games.

    Also knowing Ole he wouldn't rotate and will play his best first XI. I suspect it would be similar to the game against PSG.
