Manchester United vs. Braga, 2012 UEFA Champions League: Lineups

Manchester United are dealing with injuries galore across the back and have opted to rest Rio Ferdinand and Patrice Evra for the weekend. That's left them with a bit of a makeshift back line that features Michael Carrick playing as a central defender. In addition to only having one true central defender, the team also has no wingers. This team's eventual formation is anyone's guess. I'm anyone, so I'm going to take a guess.

Braga are missing a number of first choice players, including two defenders, so Alex Ferguson will probably get away with resting who he has.

Manchester United lineup (4-2-2-2): David De Gea; Alexander Buttner, Jonny Evans, Michael Carrick, Rafael; Tom Cleverley, Darren Fletcher; Wayne Rooney, Shinji Kagawa; Robin van Persie, Javier Hernandez

Braga lineup (4-2-3-1): Beto; Elderson, Vinicius, Nuno Andre, Leandro Salino; Custodio, Hugo Viana; Ruben Micael, Alan, Ruben Amorim; Eder

Kickoff is at 2:45 p.m. ET, and you can catch the game on FOX Soccer in the U.S. and ITV 1 in the U.K.
