Manchester United face a crucial clash with Anderlecht on Thursday, as they travel to Brussels for the opening leg of their UEFA Europa League quarter-final tie.The Red Devils are favourites to go all the way in Europe’s second-tier competition this season, and it could well be a necessity come the end of 2016-17 if the Mancunian giants are to qualify for next term’s UEFA Champions League—they are struggling to break into the Premier League’s top four.
Jose Mourinho’s men are heavy favourites to oust Anderlecht because of the vastly superior quality in their squad, and United will be eager to get their noses in front in the first leg at the Constant Vanden Stock Stadium.United last faced Anderlecht in the first group stage of the 2000-01 Champions League. In their home clash against the Belgian side, the Red Devils prevailed 5-1, but they lost the away fixture 2-1.
Mourinho will likely not be happy with a narrow defeat on Thursday. Even though a 2-1 loss would still leave United with every chance of advancing—an away goal will be crucial—they have too much quality to be satisfied with a defeat.United go into Thursday’s clash in decent form, having beaten Sunderland 3-0 on Sunday, with Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Marcus Rashford scoring the goals at the Stadium of Light.
