Manchester United have been dealt another huge blow ahead of their Europa League clash against Real Betis this week, with star midfielder Casemiro a huge doubt for the game.
The Brazilian international has been a key figure for United this season, playing a pivotal role in their impressive run of form in the Premier League and Europe. However, he has been struggling with a knee injury in recent weeks and is now a major doubt for the game against Betis.
Casemiro has been a regular starter for United this season, making 24 appearances in all competitions. He has been a key figure in United’s midfield, providing a strong defensive presence and helping to link up the play between defence and attack.
The Brazilian has also been a key figure in United’s impressive run of form in the Europa League, helping them to reach the last 16 of the competition. He has been a key figure in United’s impressive defensive record in the competition, helping them to keep seven clean sheets in their nine games so far.
However, his absence could be a major blow for United as they look to progress to the quarter-finals of the competition. Without Casemiro, United could struggle to contain the attacking threat of Betis, who have scored in all but one of their Europa League games this season.
United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will be hoping that Casemiro can recover in time for the game, but it looks increasingly likely that he will miss out. If he does, then United will have to find a way to cope without him, as they look to progress to the quarter-finals of the competition.
It is a huge blow for United, but they will be hoping that they can find a way to cope without Casemiro and progress to the next round of the competition.
