UEFA Champions League

Starting XI: Man Utd Vs Wolfsburg

Manchester United host Bundesliga outfit Wolfsburg at Old Trafford this week and will be in search of their first points in this season's Champions League.

UEFA Champions League

Teams: Manchester United vs Wolfsburg

Venue: Old Trafford, Manchester

Time: 8.45pm

The Red Devils' first group game didn't go the way of the Old Trafford outfit, with manager Louis van Gaal seeing his side lose 2-1 to PSV Eindhoven, despite taking the lead in the encounter.

Wolfsburg managed to get their campaign off to a good start, beating Russian side CSKA Moscow 1-0 in their opening game.

No German team has kept a clean sheet against United in their past 16 Champions League matches. 

Bayern Munich were the last German team to beat the Red Devils at Old Trafford in the Champions League.

United have only lost four of their past 65 Champions League matches at Old Trafford and have never lost their first two games of a Champions League campaign.

On the other hand, Wolfsburg have lost all three of their trips to England in European competition, conceding eight goals in the process, and have only failed to score once in seven Champions League group games.

In team news, the Red Devils will be without Michael Carrick, while Ander Herrera and Antonio Valencia are doubtful for the game with minor injuries.

Wolfsburg will be without midfielder Luiz Gustavo, who has a knee injury, while centre back Robin Knoche is also sidelined.

Here's how the teams will line up:

Manchester United: De Gea; Valencia, Smalling, Blind, Darmian; Schneiderlin, Schweinsteiger; Mata, Rooney, Memphis; Martial

Wolfsburg: Benaglio; Trasch, Naldo, Dante, Rodriguez; Guilavogui, Arnold; Caligiuri, Kruse, Draxler; Dost
