The sides met two weeks ago in a match that United won 2-0 thanks to two Wayne Rooney penalties, and Ferguson says that he knew the Romanian team would be difficult to beat before their last game and he will not make many alterations to the side that beat Everton at the weekend.

"I don't think there will be a lot of changes," he told the club's official website. "Maybe two or three but no more.

"We have to win on Wednesday, without doubt. We're at home and I expect us to win and, if we do that, (qualification) is in our hands when we play Benfica at home.

"I expect Benfica to beat Basel as they're in a bit of disarray with Thorsten Fink going to Hamburg. We'll hopefully win our game and, when we play Benfica at home, it'll be the decider in our section.

"Having watched (Galati), I knew nobody turns them over."
