Sports Mole previews Wednesday's Champions League Group H clash between Braga and Manchester United in Portugal.

Manchester United could wrap up early qualification from Group H when they travel to Portugal to face Braga in the Champions League on Wednesday.

Braga suffered a 3-2 defeat to United two weeks ago and they are in desperate need of the three points with Cluj currently occupying second spot in the group.

United will wrap up progression if they can secure all three points against the Portuguese outfit and they enter the match off the back of an impressive performance against Arsenal.

Braga also enter the match with victory under their belt, however, and they will attempt to use home advantage to inspire them to victory over Sir Alex Ferguson's side.

Braga have no fresh injury concerns to contend with and are expected to name Alan and Eder in attack once more. Meanwhile, United could name the same side that started at the weekend, but Anderson is pushing for inclusion.

Recent form:

Braga: WDLWW
Manchester United: WWWLW

Possible lineups:

Braga: Beto; Douglao, Vinicius, Echiejile, Coelho; Amorim, Viana, Custodio, Salino; Alan, Eder

Manchester United: De Gea; Rafael, Ferdinand, Evans, Evra; Valencia, Carrick, Cleverley, Young; Rooney, Van Persie

Sports Mole says: 1-2
