Manchester United are heavy favorites for their UEFA Champions League match against Otelul Galati, with both Wayne Rooney and Nemanja Vidic expected to start

Manchester United have drawn both of their first two matches in the UEFA Champions League this year, but they'll have some serious explaining to do to their fans if they manage any result but a win in Bucharest on Tuesday night. Otelul Galati may be the champions of Romania, but they're also without a point so far in the Champions League, falling to both Benfica and FC Basel. 

Unfortunately for United, they have to think about who they play and how much time they're given. There's a Manchester Derby looming large at the weekend, and Manchester City have a larger squad than their cross-town rivals at the moment. Wayne Rooney and Nemanja Vidic are expected to be re-instated into the starting lineup, but Rio Ferdinand hasn't even made the trip and the starter status of 'Chicharito' Javier Hernandez is unknown.
