Lisandro Martinez and Marcus Rashford start – Manchester United predicted XI vs Atletico Madrid.
This weekend, the Man United team will compete in its final two exhibition games prior to the start of the Premier League season.
The Premier League season is getting closer, and Manchester United will be back in action this weekend.
Atletico Madrid will be Erik ten Hag’s team’s opponent in Norway on Saturday, followed by Rayo Vallecano at Old Trafford on Sunday. This month, United took a successful preseason tour to Thailand and Australia.
Ten Hag’s revamped team defeated Crystal Palace, Melbourne Victory, and Liverpool, but United was prevented from winning four games in a row by a late equalizer against Aston Villa. The addition of Lisandro Martinez and Christian Eriksen has increased Ten Hag’s options this weekend.
For the match against Atletico in the Ullevaal Stadion in Oslo, it is anticipated that Ten Hag will field a strong lineup. That would imply that Lisandro Martinez might start at the center of the defense and David de Gea would start in goal.
Tyrell Malacia should start in Luke Shaw’s place, but Diogo Dalot will be hoping for an opportunity to show Ten Hag that he can be his primary right-back this year. Fred and Scott McTominay were spotted working out together on Thursday, and they may team up in center midfield.
Anthony Martial, who scored three goals during the tour, will be hoping to start in attack. Cristiano Ronaldo hasn’t played a single minute of preseason action, so it’s unlikely that he will on Saturday. Jadon Sancho and Marcus Rashford want to keep playing in the open spaces.
