Football lovers are gearing up for another action-packed Europa League matchday as Manchester United host Club Brugge at Old Trafford, while Arsenal take on Olympiacos at Emirates Stadium in the return legs of their quest for round of 16 tickets.

Manchester United have kept three successive clean sheets in the Premier League and the encounter tomorrow will guarantee their place in the Europa League round of 16.

Anthony Martial’s away goal leaves Ole Gunnar Solskjær’s team in the driving seat going into the return leg, but Brugge caused the Red Devils enough problems in Belgium last week to suggest they could defy the odds at Old Trafford.


Club Brugge Coach Philippe Clement wants to make Man United sweat in their stadium. The Belgian side are still missing Krépin Diatta, while Éder Balanta is suspended, but on the plus side Percy Tau has shown he can be effective as a No10.

Phillppe Clement is sure to field his strongest side, which should mean a starting place for Mats Rits, Captain Ruud Vormer and Belgian player of the year Hans Vanaken, while ex-Liverpool goalkeeper Simon Mignolet returns to England for the first time to face his old rivals.
Other tasty clashes to look forward to in the Europa League include the Inter Milan showdown with Ludogoreths at the San Siro, Gent vs Roma, as well as a potential thriller involving Espanyol vs Wolves.

All games will be played simultaneously by 9:00 p.m. tomorrow on StarTimes.

Both matches will be played at 9:00 pm tomorrow and StarTimes Nigeria has assured subscribers of live exclusive broadcast of the Europa League matches.
