Updated on: Jul 28, 2021 11:30 pm IST
MUN vs BRE Dream 11: Manchester United face off against newly-promoted Brentford in their third friendly of the season. The Red Devils drew their game against Derby followed by a 4-2 loss to Queens Park Rangers. However, it should be noted that only Wan-Bissaka and Greenwood were the first choice players starting that game. United would have a spring in their step as they have recently recruited Jadon Sancho and Rafael Varane in the space of a week.

Meanwhile, Brentford is gearing up for life in the big league in splendid fashion. Thomas Parker’s side has won four games on the bounce. They gained promotion by winning the play-offs at the end of last year’s Championship season. The visitors would relish the chance to play at Old Trafford albeit in a friendly game. They would look to cause an upset here against a young Manchester United side.
July 29, Thursday
Kick-Off: 00:30 AM (IST)
Venue: Old Trafford
Manchester United: LWLWD
The head-to-head record is of little significance here as the two sides last met in 1975. They have played a total 13 games in their history with United winning six while Brentford has won five.
Manchester United News
Injury Report and Unavailability:
David de Gea, Victor Lindelof, Harry Maguire, Luke Shaw, Paul Pogba, Bruno Fernandes, Marcus Rashford, Edinson Cavani, Fred, Amad Diallo, and Eric Bailly are unavailable. Donny Van de Beek and Diogo Dalot are back in training and might get some minutes.
Expected Changes and Strategy:
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is known to show faith in youngsters. This is a great opportunity for them to showcase their skills against a good side. Also, the fans are back to give a huge lift to the team.
Third-choice goalkeeper Tom Heaton should be starting in at goal, in spite of a poor outing last time around. A Wan-Bissaka, A Tuanzebe, T Mengi, and B Williams are likely to form the backline. N Matic and S Mctominay could partner in the double pivot in midfield. D James, J Lingard and A Elanga could occupy the attacking midfield positions and provide service to Mason Greenwood up top.
Manchester United Starting XI (Likely)
Tom Heaton, Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Axel Tuanzebe, Teden Mengi, Brandon Williams; Nemanja Matic, Scott Mctominay, D James, Mason Greenwood, Jesse Lingard
Injury Report and Unavailability: There are no injuries reported. However, Mathias Jensen, Pontus Jansson, and Christian Norgaard are still not back after their exploits in the Euros.
Expected Changes and Strategy: Thomas Parker fielded a strong XI as Brentford routed Watford 3-1 on Saturday. He is likely to do the same to maintain the momentum.
David Raya could start between the posts. K Ajer, E Pinnock and C Goode could lineup in the back 3. J Oksanen, D Thompson, F Stevens, V Janelt could occupy the midfield slots. S Canos, I Toney, and J Valencia are likely to play in the forward lines.
Brentford Starting XI (Likely)
David Raya, Kristoffer Ajer, Ethan Pinnock, Charlie Goode; Fin Stevens, Vitaly Janelt, Jaakko Oksanen, Dominic Thompson; Sergi Canos, Ivan Toney, Joel Valencia.
Mason Greenwood is a lethal striker who finished last season with aplomb. Equally able on both feet, the 19-year-old just needs a whisker of a chance to get his shot away. He is the standout captain choice as the leader of United’s attack.
Ivan Toney is by far the best striker the promoted teams have to offer this season. He scored a record 31 goals in the Championship last year. He is also in hot form scoring 3 goals in the last two games.
Jesse Lingard could be an interesting differential choice. He would be playing in the no.10 role just behind the striker. Last year, while he was on loan at West Ham, he scored 9 goals and made 5 assists in just 16 games.
MUN vs BRE Dream 11 Teams
GK: T Heaton
DEF: A Tuanzebe, A Wan-Bissaka, K Ajer

Who will win?
Brentford is in good pre-season form while United is without their regular stars. The game is difficult to call and could see both teams on the scoresheet. The MUN vs BRE Today Match Prediction odds are in favor of Manchester United to get the win here as the home side will look to bounce back after their recent loss.
