Club Brugge finished third in its Champions League group, which was a best case scenario for the club given that European giants Paris Saint-Germain and Real Madrid were in the group with them. While a place in the Europa League knockout rounds isn’t where the team wanted to be, a tie against Manchester United presents another huge opportunity for the club. Emmanuel Dennis led Brugge with two goals in the Champions League group stage, and will likely need to get on the scoresheet again in this match to give his team an advantage heading into leg two at Old Trafford.
Manchester United has flown through its Europa League group, with Mason Greenwood’s four goals in the competition pacing the Red Devils thus far. In a competition like this, Manchester United’s lineup will more or less decide how far it will go. With a chance to earn a Champions League place through the Premier League, though it isn’t a guarantee, United could push its chips into this competition, with the winner earning an automatic place in next year’s Champions League.
