Venue: Jan Breydel Stadion (Brugge)
On their way to the Round-of-32 of the UEFA Europa League, the Red Devils steamrolled their way through Group L of the competition. Finishing top of the group, four points clear, Manchester United left the likes of AZ Alkmaar and Partizan Belgrade chasing shadows.

The home side, on the other hand, were handed a tough Champions League group, consisting of European giants in Paris Saint Germain and Real Madrid. As expected, with the quality of the opposition in question, Blauw-Zwart were made to settle for a third-place finish, condemning them to Europa League football.

With Manchester United having tasted success in their past two h2h meetings against this foe, the Red Devils will be expected to extend their winning streak against Philippe Clement’s side to three games on the trot.

Club Brugge and Manchester United Team News

Club Brugge managed to book their berth in the Europa League, despite failing to secure even a single win in the group stages of the Champions League. The hosts finished third in Group A with just three measly points to their name.

However, with Galatasaray coming up short by a point, the Belgian outfit were given a lifeline. To be frank, though, the home team have not been convincing in their clashes as of late. In fact, Club Brugge have just three wins to boast of from their past seven games in all competitions.

On the other hand, Manchester United topped their respective group in the Europa League with a solid four-point advantage over the nearest foes. The visitors stumbled just once throughout the group stages and conceded just two goals in the process as well.

Furthermore, it goes without saying that the Red Devils are plying their trade in arguably one of the toughest leagues across Europe, as opposed to the hosts. It is also worth mentioning that Club Brugge were at the losing end in their past two Europeans clashes here.

Given the stature of the team that they are up against, Club Brugge are the obvious underdogs to come away with the win.

Be that as it may, Manchester United have been a nervous bunch, more often than not, in their outings this season. Miserably, they have come out on top in just one of their past four trips on the road. Hence, a double chance is sizing up to be the safest punt in this one.

Additionally, losing Marcus Rashford to injury has certainly been a problem for the Red Devils upfront. The guests have been tame in the final third, in all honesty, and are unlikely to rack up the goals tally this week.

With Club Brugge also managing just one goal at home in the group stages of the Champions League, it looks like a low scoring affair is on the cards come Thursday.

Injured or Suspended Players

Club Brugge: Michael Krmencik.

Manchester United: Paul Pogba, Marcus Rashford, Scott McTominay, Axel Tuanzebe and Victor Lindelof.
