Manchester United vs Club Brugge Match Preview

Anthony Martial’s opportunist goal has put Manchester United in the driving seat in this Europa League tie and they are expected to complete the job of qualifying for the last 16 against Club Brugge.

The French striker pounced on a misplaced throw-in last Thursday to get himself one-on-one with former Liverpool goalkeeper Simon Mignolet and slotted the ball home for a vital away goal and equaliser after Emmanuel Dennis had put Bruges ahead on the counter-attack.

At 1-1 on aggregate, United will be confident of seeing off the Belgians at Old Trafford to edge a step closer to regaining the trophy they lifted in 2017 and, just as importantly, returning to the Champions League if they cannot get there via their domestic table.

That said, the Red Devils are in better shape, and form, in the Premier League than was the case a month or so ago and their current fifth position may be good enough for Champions League football depending on what happens with the UEFA ban issued to Manchester City.

As for Brugge, they remain undefeated in 14 matches and there remains a warning for United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and his players that the Belgian league leaders were 2-0 up away to Real Madrid in the Champions League earlier this season before drawing 2-2.

United do not always make life easy for themselves and while they are backed to win this game, their progress to the round-of-16 may be only by the narrowest of margins in terms of avoiding extra time.
