Manchester United learned that they will face Club Brugge in the Champions League playoff round on Friday and it’s safe to say that fans were happy with the draw.
Louis van Gaal’s side avoided the likes of CSKA Moscow and Lazio and will be confident of progressing into the group stages of the competition.
It will be the first time that United will face Club Brugge in a competitive fixture.

@PeoplesPerson_ Good draw. Avoided Monaco, Lazio and trip to Russia.

@PeoplesPerson_ Good draw. Could have been worse facing Lazio/CSKA. But can't take the Belgian side lightly. Still gotta beat them square.

There really cannot be any excuses for not qualifying for the Champions League. If United do not beat Club Brugge over the two legs, they don’t deserve to be in the competition.
Anticipation is building and Old Trafford will be buzzing when European football returns for the first time in a year. United are one of the biggest clubs in the world and they are back where they belong.
