Manchester United vs Sheriff Tiraspol: Preview and Expected line-ups – Oct 27th - UEL

On October 27, the fifth round of the Europa League group stage will return with many exciting matches. In Group E, the situation was almost decided when Real Sociedad and Manchester United were the two teams that got the tickets to the knockout round. So, hosting Sheriff at home will probably be an easy game for Manchester United.

Manchester United last 5 games

Manchester United's form has not been really stable since the beginning of October, although they remain a strong contender in the race for a top-four place in the Premier League. In the last five matches in all competitions, Bruno Fernandez and his teammates have only won 3 and drawn 2, including a disappointing draw against Newcastle, and the latest is a draw against Chelsea thanks to Casemiro's last minute goal.

In the Europa League this season, Manchester United has won 3 of the 4 played matches, but the performances of the Red Devils were not really impressive because 2 of those 3 victories were victories with a 1-goal difference against weaker opponents like Omonia or Sheriff.

With 9 points after 4 matches and 6 points ahead of the chasing team, Sheriff, it can be said that Manchester is almost certain to go on in the Europa League. Now, coach Ten Hag and his players are aiming to finish first in Group E to avoid having to compete in a play-off match for an official ticket to the knockout round. Against a weaker opponent like Sheriff, the Red Devils’ fans have every right to hope for an easy victory for the home team.

Sheriff last 5 games

Sheriff's situation is not better than that of Manchester United when in the last 5 matches, they also won only 3 victories but had to receive 2 defeats.

In the domestic league, Sheriff continues to outperform other opponents, currently leading the Moldova Super Liga table by 6 points over the second-place team.

Sheriff, on the other hand, had a completely opposite performance in the Europa League, which is far more competitive than Super Liga, losing three of four played matches, finishing third in Group E and almost being kicked out of the competition. With their current form, having to face Manchester United at Old Trafford will be a huge challenge for coach Stjepan Tomas' squad. So they have to try their best if they want to get a favorable result in the UK.

Last head-to-head matches

Throughout the history of the two teams, Manchester United and Sheriff have only met once in the second round of the group stages of the Europa League this season. The match ended with a 2-0 victory for the Reds Devils in Moldova. 2 goals were scored by Jadon Sancho and Cristiano Ronaldo.

Manchester United did not have the strongest squad prior to the rematch at the Theater of Dreams, but with Ronaldo returning to training after the recent attitude controversy, coach Ten Hag will likely add the Portuguese striker to the competition registration list.

This next match will be the second time the two teams meet, and it promises to have a beneficial result in favor of Manchester United. If the Red Devils win this game, it will be the perfect stepping stone to a game against another tough EPL opponent, West Ham United.

Team news

Man United: Varane, Wan-Bissaka, Van de Beek (injuried)

Man United: De Gea (GK), Dalot, Lindelof, Martinez, Malacia, Casemiro, Eriksen, Fernandes, Antony, Sancho, Rashford.

Sheriff: Koval (GK), Kpozo, Radeljic, Kiki, Guedes, Akanbi, Badolo, Kyabou, Diop, Ouattara, Atiemwen.
