The game will be played at the Bolshaya Sportivnaya Arena and the hosts begin the match top of Group E on 3 points while the visitors are in 3rd place on 0 points.

FC Sheriff Tiraspol come into the game on the back of a 2-0 home win over Milsami on the weekend in the Moldova Super Liga.

That win leaves them six points clear at the top of the table having played seven matches and they already look well placed to win the league in Moldova again this season.

FC Sheriff Tiraspol have played 16 competitive matches this season having started in Champions League qualifying.

They have suffered only two defeats in those 16 games but they came in the Champions League third qualifying round, which saw them eliminated from the competition.

Having started their Europa League campaign at Omonia Nicosia, FC Sheriff Tiraspol sit top of Group E thanks to a good 3-0 win.

Having opened the scoring in only the 2nd minute of the game, FC Sheriff Tiraspol added two more goals in the second half to make a great start to the group. Trends show Sheriff Tiraspol have successfully kept a clean sheet in their three most recent matches in the Europa League.

Manchester United travel to Moldova having had their Premier League fixture postponed on the weekend. That means their most recent game was in the Europa League last week and the Red Devils lost 1-0 at home to Real Sociedad.

It was a difficult night for the teams given the circumstances but Manchester United were poor for much of the game and could not have many complaints about the result.

The loss to Real Sociedad ended a run of four straight wins for Manchester United, all of which came in the Premier League. The victories at home over Liverpool and Arsenal were particularly impressive.
