Why Manchester United should pair Sabitzer with Casemiro against Barcelona.

Casemiro’s absence shows just how devastating Manchester United central midfield. The pairing of Fred and Marcel Sabitzer didn’t give supporters any peace of mind. Although the latter was praised for his contribution to the goal in recent games.

Casemiro misses Manchester United again. He continues to serve a three-match ban for a direct red card for Crystal Palace midfielder Will Hughes. Which the club also chose not to file an appeal.

Erik ten Hag gives Sabitzer a chance to start in place of the Brazilian midfielder. And he has done not badly from the start as a defensive midfielder in the last 2 matches.

Against Leeds at Old Trafford in midweek, Sabitzer join Fred in midfield and was unfortunate to fail to score in the first half as Illan Meslier. Save his shot.

Sunday’s game once again sees Sabitzer face the same opponent. The Austrian midfielder defended a defensive line that looked unreliable. With a panel of centre-backs like Harry Maguire and Luke Shaw, he uses his strengths to hit the ball in a timely fashion. Before the end, help the Red Devils keep a clean sheet.

throughout the competition No player other than Sabitzer holds the record for the most passes into the final area with 13 and regained possession twice. 100 percent as well.

Sabitzer’s overall performance against Leeds means. He deserves to be paired with Casemiro for Manchester United’s Europa League clash with Barcelona.

Currently, Barcelona is one of the teams with the hottest form. And with players like Robert Lewandowski and Pedri, they are all-round and good enough to beat Manchester United.

However, after seeing what Sabitzer can do. So starting him with Casemiro might be a better solution for the Red Devils than having Casemiro pair up with Fred.

However, Sabitzer was unable to play for the Red Devils in the first leg. due to penalty After accumulating a quota of yellow cards while playing for Bayern Munich in the UEFA Champions League group stage match against Inter Milan

According to UFABET, yellow cards can carried over from one competition to another. This means Sabitzer will suspend at Camp Nou but he will be available for the second leg on February 23.

It is believe that many Red Devils fans would rather see a Casemiro-Sabitzer pairing than Casemiro and Fred. Although this Thursday we may have to see the latter.
