Manchester United manager David Moyes could throw Portuguese winger Nani straight into the deep end against Greek side Olympiakos tonight.

The Red Devils have to turnaround a 2-0 deficit against Olympiakos tonight if they are to progress to the quarter-finals of the Champions League.

Moyes is looking for a fresh spark to ignite Manchester United's chances of qualifying and the Scotsman believes the 27-year-old could be the man to fire the Red Devils into the last eight of Europe's most prestigious competition.

Nani has not played for Manchester United since December 7 due to a long-term hamstring injury.

The likes of Antonio Valencia, Ashley Young and Adnan Januzaj have been given the chance to impress in Nani's absence, however the trio have failed to hold down a regular first-team spot in Moyes' starting line-up.

Playing Nani from the start could be a major risk for the Scotsman, however Moyes has to go all-out for the win.

Manchester United first-team coach Ryan Giggs could make his first appearance for the Premier League champions since February 22.
