Melbourne Victory are three-time A-League Men champions, last lifting the trophy in 2015, while they finished second in their domestic table last term, just a point behind Melbourne City.

The Boys in Blue confirmed the signing of former Man United attacker Nani on Tuesday, and the Portuguese is bidding to be involved against the 20-time English champions in this match.

Tony Popovic‘s side have been busy in terms of incomings this summer, with Tomi JuricPaul Izzo and George Timotheou among those to arrive at the club ahead of the new campaign.

The 2022-23 A-League Men season does not actually start until October 7, while it will be paused in the middle of November due to the 2022 World Cup.

As well as Nani, Victory have another Portuguese in their ranks in the shape of Roderick Miranda, with the former Wolverhampton Wanderers centre-back the vice-captain of the Australian outfit, and the 31-year-old is expected to feature at the back in Friday’s pre-season clash with the Red Devils.

Nani has revealed that he is desperate to face his former club on Friday, but the Portuguese will have to prove his fitness to head coach Popovic, and he could be handed a late cameo here.

“As a player, I always want to play, so if he (Popovic) gives me five minutes, I will be ready. I would like to … but I’ve just arrived in the country, it’s a long flight, there are a lot of things to do to prepare. The body must be ready to compete,” Nani said upon the completion of his move.

Popovic will want to make full use of his squad and take a look at the club’s recent signings, with Juric, Noah Smith and Timotheou potentially all starting for Victory here.

Nick D’Agostino was the team’s leading goalscorer in the A-League Men last term with 10, and the 23-year-old is also expected to feature in the final third of the field.

As for Man United, club captain Harry Maguire did not feature against Liverpool due to a slight knock, but he is expected to be in the starting XI on Friday.

Head coach Ten Hag will shuffle his pack from the side that took to the field for the first whistle on Tuesday, with Malacia, Donny van de Beek and Anthony Elanga potentially coming in from the start.

Martial might again get the nod through the middle, while Bruno Fernandes should also retain his spot, with outings for the likes of Pellistri, Charlie Savage and Zidane Iqbal likely to come from the bench.

David de Gea picked up a slight knock against Liverpool and could now be replaced between the sticks by Tom Heaton, while Hannibal Mejbri will hope to feature, having not been used last time out.

There will be no Axel Tuanzebe for the 20-time English champions, though, as the centre-back has not made the trip to Australia alongside his teammates due to a personal issue.
