Manchester United vs Club Brugge – Europa League :Manchester United will host Club Brugge at Old Trafford this Thursday
Manchester United vs Club Brugge –On a match counting towards the 2nd leg of the Europa League.
The first leg was played last week in Belgium and it finished on a 1-1 draw with Anthony Martial scoring the goal of the English side.
That goal from Martial at the Jan Breydel Stadium gave some motivation to the men led by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, ensuring United a clear opportunity of advancing to the next stage of this competition.
The hosts have increased their streak of 6 consecutive unbeaten matches, having won their last match by 3-0 against Watford, with Bruno Fernandes playing and performing in a very satisfactory fashion.
Bruno Fernandes scored a goal and participated on the other two, that were scored by Martial and Mason Greenwood.
With this result, United climbed to 5th place, which would be enough for a spot in the Champions League next season.
A goalless draw will be enough for the Red Devils to advance in this tie, but Solskjaer will not want to complicate things and they will try to win this match.
It’s important to say that United won this competition two seasons ago and they are unbeaten on their last 12 matches at home in the Europa League.
Paul Pogba and Marcus Rashford are still absent but Scott McTominay that played against Watford should be part of the starting line-up.
Brugge’s big concern, despite being unbeaten since December of last year, is that they never won a match away from home on the European competitions in England.
That negative streak of results in England includes 2 draws and 10 losses and on the last visit to England, they’ve lost by 2-1 against Leicester City on a match counting towards the Champions League three seasons ago.
However, Philippe Clement’s men have already had good performances this season away from home, with one of them being on the 2-2 draw against Real Madrid in the Champions League.
The Belgians are without their top goal scorer Dennis and their captain Ruud Vormer, since both of them are injured while Eder Balanta is also absent due to a suspension.

Manchester United vs Club Brugge – Betting Tips: :
United came out of the 1st leg in Belgium with a positive result.
However, Solskjaer should play with a strong line-up, and I think that the Red Devils should perform well here at Old Trafford, but I also believe that both sides will score here.
