Manchester United endured a one-season hiatus from Europe, although the Red Devils are back in the Champions League and determined to make the group stage.

The play-off draw was favourable, with United getting the Belgian champions instead of some of the tastier teams in the draw and Louis van Gaal will want to get the job done at Old Trafford on Wednesday night.

What have we seen from United so far? A solid defence being masked by Morgan Schneiderlin and Michael Carrick, although little to offer going forward as can be seen from the two 1-0 wins against Tottenham and Aston Villa.

Memphis Depay had a couple of bright moments at Villa Park, with the Dutchman starting to sharpen at his new club and we think he looks a solid enough bet to open the scoring in this game.

Depay’s pace should see him cause problems for a Brugge team who won the Belgian Pro League and beat Panathinaikos over two legs to make this stage of the competition.

However, they were beaten 2-1 in Greece before a 3-0 win in Belgium and this bodes well for United who might benefit from this game in order to kickstart their season after some lacklustre displays.
