Present in group A of the Champions League alongside Galatasaray, Real Madrid and PSG, Club Bruges did not have to be ashamed of their performances but they proved to be insufficient for this team to hope to continue in C1 . After having started with 2 draws against Galatasaray (0-0) and Real Madrid (2-2), the Belgians did not make the weight against PSG (0-5 and 1-0). Then, they went to seek an important point in Turkey (1-1) before finishing with a defeat against Real (1-3). Nevertheless, the 3rd place obtained behind the Parisians and the Madrilenians allowed them to be transferred to this C3. On the national scene, Simon Mignolet’s partners are wide leaders in the ranking with 9 units ahead of his runner-up at La Gantoise. Held in check by Standard de Liège (0-0), they returned to success against Waasland-Beveren this weekend (2-1).
For its part, Manchester United did not necessarily convince during the group stage of the Europa League but the club still finished at the top of its pool ahead of AZ Alkmaar, Partizan Belgrade and Astana with 4 successes ahead of Astana (1-0), Partizan (0-1 and 3-0) and AZ (4-0). However, the Red Devils were disappointing on the field of Alkamaar (0-0) and that of Astana (2-1). In the championship, the band of Paul Pogba does not at all live up to its ambitions with a bad 9th place. They also remain on 2 defeats against Liverpool (2-0) and Burnley (0-2) and a draw against Wolverhampton (0-0). Monday night, they face Chelsea.
