Man Utd's hopes of qualifying for the Champions League knockout stages are hanging by a thread, as they prepare to face Galatasaray in Istanbul on Wednesday.
Erik ten Hag’s men are currently bottom of Group F, having won just one of their opening four matches and that includes a dramatic defeat to their Turkish opponents at Old Trafford.
Defeat will see the Red Devils crash out, but a victory would put them in a strong position going into the final round of matches on Tuesday 12th December.
Both Teams to Score - 1/2
These two sides battled out a five-goal thriller when they met at Old Trafford back in early October, with Galatasaray running out 3-2 winners, having been 2-1 behind with 20 minutes to play.
United’s last two Champions League away days have seen seven goals in each - with 4-3 defeats at both Bayern Munich and FC Copenhagen.
Even though the Premier League side have won just two of their last nine Champions League away games, they have found the back of the net in each of their last nine away days.
Meanwhile, the hosts - who lost home and away to Bayern Munich in their last two group games - have scored in every one of their 10 European ties this term.
United will also be buoyed by Galatasaray’s home form so far in the group, collecting just one point from two matches after a 2-2 draw with Copenhagen and a 3-1 loss to Bayern.
Over 2.5 Goals - 4/7
This group has seen more goals than any other this season, with 34 goals bagged to date - which includes nine from United.
Ten Hag has seen his team score in each of their last four games in all competitions and they have 20 goals overall in their four Champions League games this term.
Galatasaray - who beat Alanyaspor 4-0 on Saturday - are no strangers to goals either, with over 2.5 coming in for their last four matches.
Okan Buruk’s men have conceded 12 goals in their last six Champions League games, whilst the Turkish champions have scored in each of their 10 European matches this term.
Mauro Icardi to score at anytime - 7/5
Mauro Icardi was the match winner at Old Trafford and goes into Wednesday’s clash having scored four goals in Galatasaray’s last four home games in all competitions.
The Argentina international, a Champions League runner-up with Paris Saint-Germain, has scored twice in Group A to date.
Icardi is also the designated penalty taker for Galatasaray and with 14 European Cup career goals to his name, he could be the man for the big occasion again.
After limping off towards the end of Saturday’s league game, former Tottenham man Davinson Sanchez faces a late fitness test on a muscle problem.
Dries Mertens and Wilfried Zaha both scored in the win over Alanyaspor and are expected to start, which means Hakim Ziyech is likely to start on the bench alongside Cedric Bakambu - who scored Gala’s goal in Munich.
The visitors will be without Marcus Rashford for the trip to Istanbul, with the England forward serving a one-game suspension after his sending off against FC Copenhagen.
United will make a late check on Rasmus Hojlund, who missed the 3-0 win over Everton on Sunday due to a muscle strain.
Luke Shaw came through the Goodison clash unscathed, after returning from injury, and should start but Ten Hag is still without Christian Eriksen, Casemiro and Mason Mount.
Sunday’s Super Lig win came after back-to-back defeats for Galatasaray, at Bayern Munich and Hatayspor.
Their home form though has been impressive this term, with nine wins, one draw and one defeat in 11 matches in all competitions at RAMS Park.
