Sheriff Tiraspol could well pull off an upset for Manchester United, given their incredible record in recent times.
The Moldovan champions beat Real Madrid in the Champions League last season. They have begun the Europa League 2022/23 with a 3-0 win over Omonia in the opening game.
And at the forefront of it all is winger Rasheed Akanbi, one of Sheriff’s most dangerous players.
Addressing a press conference recently, the 23-year-old said: “I want to play against Antony, [Cristiano] Ronaldo, [Marcus] Rashford.
“I am looking forward to playing against them, especially [Harry] Maguire.
“The game against Manchester United is good for us. It’s good for FC Sheriff that we have tough opponents like this and are going to do our best because I always believe in everybody.
“I believe in my team, I believe in the coach’s tactics.”
