Champions League: Galatasaray AŞ v Manchester United FC

Manchester United FC has already sealed their place in the Champions League last 16, with two games to go. Galatasaray AŞ went second in that section with a 3-1 win at CFR 1907 Cluj. And Man United boss Sir Alex Ferguson is giving some of his hard-working players a rest.

Striker Rooney returned to training on Monday after missing Saturday's defeat at Norwich with tonsillitis, while keeper De Gea had his wisdom teeth removed. Rio Ferdinand, Ryan Giggs, Paul Scholes, Patrice Evra and David de Gea also miss the Champions League game. Nani (hamstring), Shinji Kagawa (knee) and Jonny Evans (groin) are also out. The squad includes seven players yet to play in Europe: Nick Powell, Larnell Cole, Davide Petrucci, Joshua King, Marnick Vermijl and Ryan Tunnicliffe.
