Manchester United host Club Brugge on Thursday evening, their Europa League Round of 32 match hanging in the balance after last week's 1-1 draw at the Jan Breydelstadion
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.
Anthony Martial to score first – 8/11 with bet365
