Manchester United vs Real Betis Team News
Casemiro has reportedly picked up an injury and is expected to miss the first leg, especially considering the fact that he is one yellow card away from a one game suspension in the Europa League. Lindelof, Shaw and Varane are all suffering knocks, with the latter two especially sitting out this one. Anthony Martial remains a continued absence for United, along with Donny van de Beek and Christian Eriksen.
Real Betis will be without their talisman and captain Nabil Fekir, who suffered a season ending injury. Another creative midfielder Juan Cruz is out through injury too. However, one positive news is that Sergio Canales returned to training on Monday after missing the draw against Real Madrid.

Betis have shown this season that they are more than capable to hurt and beat any opposition on any given day.
Manchester United may be vulnerable, but with Erik ten Hag at the helm, it is quite possible that we see a totally different mentality from the Red Devils, one which will lead them to victory.
