The Red Devils lost to Bayern in their group-stage opener and will treat this as a must-win encounter in order to avoid falling too behind in the group standings. While they are the stronger team on paper against Galatasaray, the team's recent form does not offer a lot of promise to the fans. Their most recent outing, a Premier League clash against Crystal Palace, ended in a 1-0 defeat.
Galatasaray, on the other hand, are unbeaten this season across all competitions. They have nine out of their last 10 matches as well. However, a trip to Old Trafford will still be an extremely difficult game away from home.
