After a 3-1 win at home Manchester United fly to Belgium trying to close out their Champions League qualifier. The Red Devils were impressive in the first leg and in particular Memphis Depay was excellent scoring two and providing an assist for the third. Louis Van Gaal's side looked a little toothless at the weekend though as they struggled to break down a well marshalled defence in Newcastle and really Wayne Rooney has not hit his stride at all yet this season and the Manchester United captain just needs a goal to kick start his season. With Mata, Depay playing as the creators in general this is a Manchester United team with lots of potential but they need to get a win here to ensure they make the Group stages of the competition.
Bruge came to Old Traffor to play and they took a shock early lead but in the end a little tactical naievty allowed the home side back into the game and two terrific strikes by Memphis undid all the good work Bruge had accomplished. Bruge will know that an early goal here at home could put them on the brink of a famous win. Led by young striker Diaby and winger Dierckx Bruge will throw everything at United the only question is can they break down the best defensive unit in the English Premier League who will have Schneiderlein sitting in front of them?
This one should be an interesting game and one that could be quite enjoyable to watch, Manchester United looked great at times in the first leg and I think they will come out to get ther job done here early. Last week I took United to be leading at half time and it paid dividends, am taking the same bet again here as I like the look of this United side and I think they go for an early goal to kill this tie off.
