Club Brugge vs Manchester United Betting Tip and Predictions. In the second leg of the final round in the qualifications for the UEFA Champions League, Club Brugge host Manchester United.
Club Brugge don’t have great result after Manchester United beat them in the first match at Old Trafford 3-1, but home team have no choice – they have to score at least two goals in order to go through in the group phase of the UEFA Champions League. Team from Belgium didn’t play impressive in the first match and it showed the fact that they had only one shot on goal. They scored on that match, but it was an own-goal by Carrick. Another bad thing for home team is that they will be without important defender Mechele who got the red card in Manchester and won’t play today.
Manchester United made a big step to qualify in the UEFA Champions league. They played in this competition for years, except last season, and they want to get back where they belong. Their coach Louis van Gaal said that Manchester United side is capable of winning the UEFA Champions League (despite the fact that they are still not qualified in that competition), comparing Man Utd to his Ajax team that won the trophy in that competition in 1995. However, visitors are in the good position and it would be a big surprise if they failed to go through.

Club Brugge vs Manchester United Betting Tip and Predictions
Club Brugge have very solid squad and they are playing very good at home ground. They have already showed when they eliminated Greek champions Panathinaikos beating them at home 3-0. But, this is a Manchester Utd and I don’t believe that they are capable to eliminate them.
