NO Schmeichel, no Pallister, Johnsen and Phil Neville doubtful and Giggs, their best player, a sheer gamble in terms of fitness. Manchester United face an uphill task as they try to bounce back from Saturday's Arsenal defeat against Monaco in the second leg of their European Cup quarter final at Old Trafford on Wednesday. But, despite their problems, United still have the ammunition to beat Monaco, hammered 3-1 by Auxerre on Friday.

Dynamo Kiev, after their brilliant 1-1 draw in Turin, have, in strikers Rebrov and Shevchenko, the ammunition to kick Juventus out of the European Cup in their quarter-final second leg in Kiev, while Bayer Leverkusen, held 1-1 at home by MSV Duisburg on Friday, have little chance at Real Madrid.

Aston Villa can beat ante-post selection Atletico Madrid without necessarily reaching the semi-finals in the second leg of their Uefa Cup quarter- final at Villa Park tomorrow. Atletico, 1-0 winners at home, would settle for a 2-1 or 3-2 defeat . Similarly Ajax should beat Spartak Moscow away without perhaps reaching the semis. 3-1 winners in Amsterdam, Spartak can afford to lose 2-0.

On Thursday, Real Betis, beaten 2-1 at home, can avenge that defeat by beating Chelsea in the second leg of their Cup Winners' Cup quarter-final at Stamford Bridge. Chelsea can afford to lose 1-0.
