Sports Mole looks ahead to Tuesday's Champions League encounter between Manchester United and Braga at Old Trafford.

It's a return to Champions League action for Manchester United on Tuesday as they welcome Portuguese side Sporting Braga to Old Trafford.

The Red Devils go into the match top of Group H with two wins from their first two games, while the visitors sit third as they started their campaign with a win and a loss.

Ashley Young is expected to be named in United's squad following a knee problem, but Chris Smalling is still sidelined as he recovers from a broken metatarsal.

Tom Cleverley, Shinji Kagawa and Darren Fletcher could also feature after being rested for Saturday's 4-2 win over Stoke City in the Premier League.

Meanwhile, Braga have no new injury concerns ahead of the match.
