As the UEFA Europa League round of 16 begins, Rostov will host the Red Devils on Thursday night.
Rostov will look to form a stumbling block for Manchester United in their bid for the first ever Europa League Trophy. They have been good at home in European games this season, losing once which was a 1-0 defeat to Atletico Madrid.
Rostov are in their longest European campaign, making their first appearance on the spring phase of any European competition. They will hope to go through to the quarter-finals to create a history for themselves.
Meanwhile, Jose Mourinho and his side are hunting for the only major European trophy lacking in their cabinet. They reached the last 16 in 2015/2016 season, their closest attempt was reaching quarter-finals in 1984/85 season.
United will enter this game from a 1-1 draw against Bournemouth over the weekend and have been unbeaten for long. They will be aiming to come away to a good result before the reverse leg at Old Trafford.
