Bruges against Manchester United or Jupiler against Premier League. The hosts come from the Champions League, but of course they are the underdog against the troop of millions from the top British league. The appearances of the FCB in the premier class were mostly weak, whereby this judgment applies especially to the home games.

Both teams have often failed to shine on the offensive. At the same time, they have stable defensive lines, which is why a low-goal evening in the Jan Breydel Stadium can be expected. The Bruges vs Manchester United prediction is linked to five units of stake.
Bruges – Statistics & current form
As in the previous year, FCB finished third at the end of the Champions League group phase. Last season, the Belgian runner-up also had to say goodbye to the Europa League as Red Bull Salzburg proved too strong.
In the recent past, the blue-blacks have mostly played weakly against British teams. The last success against a team from the island dates back to the 1994/95 season when Bruges beat the Chelsea blues 1-0 in the first leg of the then quarter-final of the cup winners; but only 1-0 and the second leg brought the end with a 0-2.
Bruges usually have no chance against English teams
Subsequently, two draws and no less than seven bankruptcies were received against clubs from Great Britain. The bad luck in the draw was due to the fact that it was again only third place in this year’s group phase.
“First we will analyze this game and then quickly focus on Manchester United.” – Mats Rits over the last game
With Real Madrid and PSG, the prospects of remaining in the competition were very slim from the start. The home appearances were somewhat disappointing.
A 0: 5 lesson against the French champion and a 1: 3 against the rulers from the Spanish capital, as well as a tired goalless draw against Galatasaray, were dismal results even for the Belgians’ limited claims.
It was only thanks to the completely toothless lions from the Bosphorus that third place was achieved, although no match could be won. Things are going much better in the domestic Jupiler League. As leaders of the table, the Flemish are well on their way to claim the 16th title in their history.
Probable lineup of Bruges:
↪ Mignolet – Sobol – Ricca – Mechele – Lourenco – Vormer – Rits – de Ketelaere – Schrijvers – Krmencik – Diatta

Manchester United – Statistics & current form
From a personal point of view, the Red Devils have had eventful weeks behind them. For example, the MUFC signed Bruno Fernandes from Sporting. The attacker was the top scorer and second best pass in the Primeira Liga last season.
Another top newcomer is Odion Ighalo. The Nigerian was loaned from Shanghai Shenhua, where he met more or less at will.
There Ighalo got himself in the past season, at that time still in the service of Changchun Yatai, like Fernandes in Portugal the title of the second best scorer in the Chinese Super League. His strengths lie solely in the conclusion, since the offensive player rarely appears as an assistant.
Helps United’s actionism in the transfer market
Due to the danger of the Corona virus in China, the 30-year-old striker was isolated for the time being and has only been training with his new teammates since the past week. Last Monday night it was time: Ighalo made his United debut, albeit only for a few minutes in the 2-0 away win against Chelsea.
Actionism in the transfer market, however, is not only due to the well-known wallet on Man United’s side, but also, above all, significant injury concerns. The 20-time champions of the country are currently lacking important forces such as Frenchman Paul Pogba, Scotsman Scott McTominay in midfield and striker Marcus Rashford.
Probable lineup of Manchester United:
↪ de Gea – Wan-Bissaka – Lindelöf – Maguire – Shaw – Fred – Pereira – Mata – Fernandes – Martial – James

Bruges vs Manchester United Direct comparison & statistics highlights
The Elf from West Flanders and the British record champions already faced each other in 2015 as part of the qualification for the Champions League. At that time, the showdown was very one-sided in favor of United: With 3: 1 at Old Trafford and a 4: 0 away win, the Belgians remained completely without a chance.
For the new duel between Bruges and Manchester United, the odds are now only wafer-thin for the benefit of the guests.

Although coach Philippe Clement’s domestic team in Belgium is financially well equipped, the squad cannot keep up with Manchester United, of course. For their part, the guests have the right to play in the Champions League, which is why they are only moderately motivated to watch the Europa League.
The fact that United can still win the competition was observed in 2017. On the other hand, the British are currently plagued by some injury concerns, although Bruno Fernandes and Odion Ighalo have just recently signed two excellent offensive players. The Bruges against Manchester United tip includes under 2.5 goals in the course of the game.
Fernandes apparently has to acclimatize even better and Ighalo has only been on a short assignment so far. Both teams also have stable defensive lines and the MUFC will play in a controlled manner in the first leg because they know about the home strength in the second leg at Old Trafford.

Key facts – Bruges vs Manchester United tips
💫 Teams faced each other in the CL four and a half years ago – United won twice
💫 Bruges are leaders in the Belgian Jupiler League
💫 Manchester is only seventh in the Premier League
In addition, Bruges is too limited on the offensive to score against the team of coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer several times. In addition, Nigerian David Okereke is an important striker and recently had to pass.
Even the home games in the group phase of the Champions League have also shown that the footballers from the canal city have a difficult time scoring goals on the international stage. Only one goal was scored in the three completed games in front of their own backdrop.
Last but not least, the record against British clubs is sobering from the FCB’s point of view: No wins have been won for a quarter of a century (0-2-7).
