Man United to ease past Brugge in Europa League

Manchester United hope to finish off Club Brugge in the second leg of their Europa League clash on Wednesday. Will the Belgian side be able to pull off a shock? Have a read of our preview here:

United’s best chance of Champions League football

The 1-1 draw in Belgium last Thursday was not a great watch, but it did give Manchester United a vital away goal as they head back to Old Trafford to finish the job.

It is never easy for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side this season, but you’d expect United to have enough about them to finish off a side that have been unable to progress in Europe for a long time.

That said, Brugge currently sit nine points clear of Gent at the top of the Pro League and they will have to be carefully marshalled by United.

Martial netted the important goal in the first leg and he could have a big say in whether they get the job done back on home soil.

The Frenchman has been directly involved in 12 goals in the Premier League this season (nine goals and three assists) with only Marcus Rashford being involved in more.

He has stepped up in Rashford’s absence, but will need help from the promising Mason Greenwood. The onus will be on United to attack and they should grab the victory but don’t expect this one to be easy.

Brugge looking to frustrate

Club Brugge know they come into this game as massive underdogs and will look to frustrate United. If the Old Trafford crowd gets on top of their team you can expect the pressure to mount – not something Man Utd have been able to deal with at times this season.

The main problem for the Belgian outfit has been their inability to keep clean-sheets in this competition.

In fact, Brugge have kept prevent their opponents scoring just one in their last 10 Europa League matches and not once in the last five.

It means, despite the 1-1 draw from the first leg, that United should feel confident of scoring at least a couple which is the minimum the home faithful will be expecting.

Manchester United v Club Brugge betting tip

United may not be having their best season but this is a game you’d expect them to win. At home the pressure will be on the Red Devils to play on the front foot that is why we are backing Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side to win by two goals at odds of 16/5 with Betfair.
