Man U Targets Europa Semi Final Ticket

Jose Mourinho will be looking for nothing less than a win when they Manchester United confront Anderlecht on Thursday at Old Trafford.

The Portuguese tactician is aware that a success in the competition will help them seal a berth in the next season’s Champions League.
Rene Weiler’s Anderlecht will be looking to score an early goal in order to boost their chances of progressing to the next round of the tournament. A defeat will see them face elimination from the Europe’s second tier club competition.
Manchester United registered a comfortable 2-0 victory over Chelsea in their last Premier League clash. Marcus Rashford opened the score in the first half after a sublime pass from Ander Herrera and the Spanish midfielder doubled the lead in the second half.
Anderlecht will enter the tie after managing a 1-0 victory over KV Oostende in the league. Sofiane Hanni’s 48th minute goal was the difference between the two sides in the end as Anderlecht sealed three points.
The first leg in Belgium ended in a 1-1 draw as Henrikh Mkhitaryan’s first half strike was cancelled by Leander Dendoncker’s late header. A clean sheet would be sufficient for United to make it to the semi-final.
