Manchester United vs Club Brugge
UEFA Europa League
Date: Thursday, 27 February 2020

Thanks to the recent decision to expel Manchester City from UEFA competitions for two years, Manchester United’s chances to play in the Champions League have grown drastically.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team is basically fighting for top five positions in the Premier League, while also progressing through Europa League playoffs.
The second leg match against Club Brugge is happening on Thursday at Old Trafford, and anything but a home win would be a huge surprise.
Hosts are massive favorites here at 1.45 odds. Should they underestimate the opposition though?
Manchester United vs Club Brugge Head-to-head
These teams have met only twice before if we exclude the last week’s clash which ended without a winner 1-1 FT.
In case you missed it, Brugge had the lead thanks to the early goal of Emmanuel Dennis, while the final result was set by Anthony Martial.
Those matches took place in 2015 in UEFA Champions League qualifiers. The Red Devils have easily defeated the opposition in both games 3-1 and 4-0.
Manchester United vs Club Brugge Prediction
Club Brugge have been very active in European competitions in the last couple of years, with only small changes to the roster. They are sitting at the top of Belgium First Division A with 19 wins in 27 games and only one loss.
Defensive stats are quite impressive, conceding only 12 goals so far. Can they put up a good fight at Old Trafford? We definitely think so.
Club Brugge defeated 4th placed Charleroi at home during the weekend 1-0.
Manchester United were victorious as well. We witnessed one of their best performances this season at Old Trafford, easily dismantling and beating Watford 3-0. Newcomer Bruno Fernandes scored his first goal as the Red Devil.
We are not expecting visitors to go down that easily. They scored at least one goal in 21 out of their last 23 matches across all competitions.
United kept only seven clean sheets in EPL this season, so going for Both teams to score bet does feel like good value at 2.20.
As for the secondary option, we will try with 2:1 correct score longshot at 9.00. Small stake is advised.
