I think this may be a bit of a whinging grudge game from our visitors from la belle France. They have not stopped crying since the moment Giggs scored in the first leg, even though EUFA have told them to shut it and get on with the game.

I think this leg could be memorable for all the wrong reasons. What if we grab a couple of early goals, will they walk off in a huff and not play with our ball anymore?

Going to be interesting....................

Rooney will be fit, I believe Park is out, as is Fletcher but I think we can get past this hurdle in on piece.

Louis Saha is out of United's Champions League clash with Lille on Wednesday night, while Paul Scholes and Patrice Evra are both doubtful.

Saha has gone for a scan in a bid to pinpoint the problem which he suffered in training on Monday. Alan Smith should play a part in the match, most likely as a subtitute, with Wayne Rooney and Henrik Larsson up front.

There was further bad news for the Reds after Sir Alex Ferguson confirmed Darren Fletcher's ankle injury is worse than first thought. The Scottish international missed United's 1-0 at Anfield at the weekend but was expected to return within two weeks.

However, a scan has highlighted damage to the ankle ligaments and Fletcher could miss the remainder of the season.

"Darren went for a scan earlier this week," revealed Sir Alex at his pre-match press briefing. "The news wasn't good. He'll be out for two months. It's a blow for the lad."

Scholes picked up an injury against Liverpool at Anfield, while Evra got a knock in training, though he did do some light work on Monday.

The Reds are already without Ole Gunnar Solskjaer for the next three weeks following a minor operation on his knee.

This game could be a famous "banana peel" .


Hopefully the lads puts on a pro performance, aviod any further injuries (whats up with Saha, crispy legs?), and qualifies with no drama.

PS!

Well a 5-0 win would be nice as well:D

Lille will do anything to knock us out of the CL tonight. Certainly after what happened in the first match. We have to stay calm, play our best players and win this one!

What a terrible game, both teams where to slow and didnt really get started. Lille never really looked like scoring, all the attempts where from outside the area which United where happy enough for them to do. But lucky enough United got the goal and Lille didnt really have a chance after that.
