Manchester United will be getting the win - or if not, a goalless draw - required to take them through to the last sixteen of this competition, given their recent upturn in form. They're unbeaten in six games in all competitions, keeping four clean sheets in that time, and they have the knowledge that thanks to their away goal last time that denying Brugge a goal here will see them through.

They won all three group stage games at home here at Old Trafford and are unbeaten at home in this competition since Marcelo Bielsa's Athletic Club knocked Sir Alex Ferguson's side out back in 2012. They won all but one game at Old Trafford when they were last in this competition, winning it three years ago.

Paul Pogba and Marcus Rashford are out, but otherwise Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has a full squad of players to choose from, and will likely continue to use impressive new signing Bruno Fernandes, who put in a man of the match display with a goal and an assist operating from the number ten role in Sunday's 3-0 win over Watford.

Brugge travel to Manchester with the luxury of being able to take one eye off domestic matters and give this match their full focus, given they boast a nine-point lead at the top of the Belgian top flight. They're also unbeaten in their last 14 competitive games in all competitions, last losing in the Champions League to Real Madrid before Christmas. However, they have failed to win their last three away games in the Belgian league, drawing all three.

We recommend backing Anthony Martial to score first here. The Frenchman has scored in each of his last three appearances for his club.

Best bet

Anthony Martial to score first – 8/11 with bet365

    Manchester United 5-0 Club Brugge - Match Highlights

    Date published: 2/27/2020 11:44:35 PM

    Odion Ighalo marked his first start for Manchester United with a goal as the Red Devils thrashed Club Brugge 5-0 at Old Trafford.

    The Europa League last-32 tie was firmly in the balance after a 1-1 draw in Belgium last week but Ole Gunnar Solskjaer made a real statement with the way he sent his team out in the second leg, demanding his side seize the initiative and control before taking the game away from Philippe Clement’s men.

    Harry Maguire was denied by a goalline block from a corner while Juan Mata brought an excellent save out of Simon Mignolet, who then did brilliantly to deny Bruno Fernandes twice with his first save, tipping a piledriver onto the post, particularly special.

    Club Brugge did carry a threat themselves with David Okereke wasting a one-on-one opportunity against a slipping Maguire while Mats Rits volleyed over from the edge of the box after Sergio Romero had flapped at a cross from the left.

    The game took a definitive turn though in the favour of the home side in the 22nd minute when centre-back Simon Deli inexplicably dived and palmed away a Daniel James strike from the egde of the box. Admittedly the effort was on target but Mignolet may well have made the save, while the bigger surprise perhaps was it took VAR five minutes to uphold the referee’s original decision to award a penalty and send off the Ivorian.

    Bruno Fernandes duly stepped up to replicate his spot-kick effort from the Watford win by hopping just before striking, this time going to the keeper’s right with Mignolet guessing wrong.

    James wasted a fantastic one-on-one chance before United had the cushion of a second goal, Fernandes crossing for Mata, who laid the ball square to give Ighalo a simple tap-in, 11 minutes before the break.

    Fernandes and Fred then teed up Scott McTominay – making his first start since Boxing Day – to rifle home from the edge of the box to effectively end the game as a contest, shortly before half-time.

    United struggled to replicate the same sort of intensity and quality in the second period, but were always in control of the game, keeping the visitors penned into their own half for long periods.

    The goals eventually came as Jesse Lingard, after capitalising on a Brugge mistake, unselfishly squared to give Fred a simple tap-in with eight minutes to go, before the Brazilian grabbed his second with a fine finish from the edge of the box with the last kick of the game.
