Louis van Gaal’s men take on Club Brugge in Belgium on Wednesday in the second leg of their UCL playoff for a spot in the group stage. Following Memphis’ two stunners and Marouane Fellaini’s late goal, the Red Devils take a 3-1 advantage to Bruges but will be wary of the Belgian side after went ahead early on at Old Trafford last week.

Elsewhere, all of the home teams have plenty of work to do as each side lost away from home in the first leg. However APOEL, Bayer Leverkusen, CSKA Moscow and Partizan Belgrade only have to overturn a one-goal deficit so expect plenty of drama across the board.
