On Thursday evening, from 20:00, Manchester United and Club Brugge meet at Old Trafford, in the return of the “16” of the UEFA Europa League. He was 1-1 in the tour, in Belgium, and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s band does not have an easy mission on its own.
Without Pogba, Rashford and Fosu-Mensah, Manchester United know they can’t be satisfied with a white draw at Old Trafford. Brugge comes with offensive intentions in England, given that the Belgians have the complete lot, except for Diatta and Van der Brempt. Without losing six consecutive matches, in all competitions, United comes after a victory with Watford (3-0), a game in which the “devils” defensively brought us two winning bets, at very good odds.
We note that in the last 5 games played on United’s own field, each time scored at most one of the teams, and statistics recommend us bets on few goals. Brugge hopes to fool Solskjaer’s defenders, and the Belgians are in a series of 14 consecutive matches without fail, in all competitions. The statistics show that Brugge has not won in the Europa League, 6 matches in a row, going through a mental block at this level. Also at Old Trafford we expect guests to reach the opponent’s gate hard.
Given that Brugge has scored the first goal in 4 of the last 5 European matches, it is expected that the bettors will turn their attention to Manchester United, especially against the good form of the “devils”. On the weekend, on the day the Reds beat Watford, Brugge prevailed against Charleroi 1-0, in good preparation for the return to the Europa League. In the tour, United fired 16 shots at Brugge’s gate and starts again the favorite, especially if he will repeat the good game on Jan Breydel Stadium.
