Club Brugge vs Manchester United Match Preview

Manchester United are targeting a fifth consecutive clean sheet, but an away goal in this Europa League away fixture would be just as important to their hopes of making progress.

Manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was delighted with his United team’s recent defensive record after they won 2-0 at Chelsea on Monday, albeit they needed VAR to wipe out two goals scored by the opposition.

Another shutout in Belgium would be very welcome, yet the Red Devils cannot afford to be level at 0-0 going into the return match because Club Brugge are a very useful side capable of causing problems even to the joint second favourites for this competition.

Brugge showed what they can do when drawing 2-2 away to Real Madrid in the Champions League group stage, having led 2-0 at the break, although they did not actually win any of their six matches during that phase despite pipping Galatasaray to third place in the table.

Domestically, Philippe Clement’s side are nine points clear at the summit as they seek to regain the Belgian league title and the only teams that have beaten them at home this term are Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain.

United may well join that elite group, but it is unlikely to be anywhere near as easy as on their last visit to this venue four seasons ago (see above) and this looks to have all the hallmarks of being a close, cagey contest.
