Manchester United and Club Brugge fight out their Europa League round of 32 second leg on Thursday night, with the tie finely poised at 1-1 after 90 minutes.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team beat Watford 3-0 at the weekend to make it six matches without defeat across all competitions.

Philippe Clement also guided his team to victory, 1-0 against Sporting Charleroi, to stay nine points clear at the top of the Belgian Jupiler Pro League.

At Old Trafford for this second leg, both teams will be aiming to progress to the last 16 and boost confidence as they push for their respective domestic objectives.

Here’s everything you need to know about the match:

When is it and what time is kick-off?
