Will Man United beat Club Brugge without conceding in the Champions League?

As mentioned, United are yet to concede a goal this season after coming through 1-0 against both Tottenham at home and Aston Villa away. Louis van Gaal is clearly putting the solidity of the team first this term after some embarrassing defensive displays last season, and so far it’s paying off.

Brugge are ranked as the 51st best team in Europe according to Uefa, while United (almost laughably!) are ranked 10th. But whether or not the accuracy of such a ranking system can be trusted or not, it is clear there is a gulf of class between the two sides. With Van Gaal determined not to take any chances and wanting to qualify for the group stage of the Champions League at all costs, we predict a pragmatic approach at Old Trafford tonight in which he sets his team out to grind out the win and to keep a clean sheet – then take the game to the Belgians in the return leg to get the away goals on the board.

If we were betting on the correct score for this match we think that 2-0 to United looks the most likely outcome – enough to take a solid lead into the second leg but without taking any chances that an all-out, gung ho approach might require if the home side were looking to finish things in the first leg.

Van Gaal knows that failure to get to the group stages will cast a shadow of failure over the whole season, even at this early juncture, so expect a measured and canny United display in which they control the tempo of the game and limit the visitors to scraps, picking off any opportunities they are themselves able to create. In short, 2-0 or 1-0 to United should be in the cards, and backing the Red Devils to win to nil at odds of 6/1 looks a top value bet!
