Spread: Club Brugge +1.25
Total: 2.25 Goals
Manchester United are coming off a 1-1 draw on the road against Club Brugge. They were actually the better team in the pitch, but even that 1-1 draw could be enough. Scoring an away goal can go a LONG way in two-legged ties. United have been in really good shape lately, going undefeated in their last six matches in all competitions (4-0-2). More importantly, they have conceded just a single goal in that span. Moreover, they are undefeated in their last 12 matches for the Europa League home matches (9-0-3). They also scored at least three team goals in six of those matches.
On the other hand, Club Brugge were not that bad in the first leg, but could not take the win. Things are quite tough for them now, as they will absolutely need to score in order to have qualifying chances. The Belgians have also been very solid in almost three months, going undefeated in 14 matches in that span (8-0-6). Eight of those matches featured Under 2.5 Goals and also five of their last seven. Club Brugge have not won any of their last six Europa League matches on the road (0-4-2). But they are also undefeated on the road in all competition since November.
Manchester United should have the upper hand regarding the win here, but Club Brugge are a really sneaky side. The hosts have been in really good shape lately and even more so defensively. They will try to shut out the Belgians and there is a good chance we will see few goals here.
