Manchester United will lock horns with Belgian side Club Brugge on Wednesday in the second leg of their Champions League playoff tie at Jan Breydel Stadium.
The Red Devils enter into the UCL encounter having taken a 3-1 lead in their home leg last week. Club Brugge managed to take the one-goal lead, but Memphis Depay’s brace and a late Marouane Fellaini header helped the Premier League giants take a two-goal lead ahead of the return leg in Belgium.
Club Brugge are without several key players for the second leg of their Champions League playoff tie. Felipe Gedoz, Bernie Ibini-Isei, Lior Refaelov, Thomas Meunier, Nicolas Castillo and Bjorn Engels are all struggling for fitness while Brandon Mechele is suspended. Skipper Timmy Simons is likely to be fit to start.
For the Red Devils, David de Gea, Antonio Valencia (injured) and Phil Jones (injured) and Bastian Schweinsteiger, are all out. Ander Herrera is pushing for a start while Fellaini is once again available.
Possible starting lineups:
Club Brugge: Bruzzese; Castelletto, De Bock, Cools, Duarte; Simons, Vormer; Dierkx, Oulare, Vasquez; Diaby
Manchester United: Romero; Darmian, Shaw, Smalling, Blind; Carrick, Schneiderlin, Herrera; Depay, Rooney, Mata
