(Europa League) Anderlecht Vs Manchester United : Match Preview And Predictions

Manchester United visits the Belgian Capital Brussels to face Anderlecht at Constant Vanden Stock Stadium for the first leg of the Europa League Quarter Final which is the first time in 17 years.

Jose Mohrinho will need to Capitalize on this game as it might end up crucial in the second leg, also the United Boss will still have a few injury concerns to worry about which include David De Gea, Chris Smalling, Phil Jones, Ashley Young, Juan Mata and captain Wayne Rooney. The United Boss had earlier speculated the return of the Ecuadorian Antonio Valencia for the Europa League Quarter Final clash.

Manchester United has lost just ones in all competitions since January and their win over Sunderland should give them the additional confidence needed to bring a good result in Belgium today

The Belgian side has met with United seven times in the past and was the first European side to meet United back in September 1956, which over the years has developed into some force in European competitions. They also boast considerable European pedigree with two UEFA Cup Winners’ Cup, one UEFA Cup and two UEFA Super Cups. They also reached the semi-finals of the European Cup twice in 1982 and 1986. All these successes in Europe were across the 1970’s and 1980’s

The Belgian side is now highly enriched with young talents which include Polish striker Lukasz Teodorczyk and playmaker Youri Tielemans both of which are highly influential in the teams performance this season. The Polish stricker Lukasz Teodorczyk has 28 goals this season which equals that of Zlatan Ibrahimovic for Manchester United while the 19 year old Tielemans has been so sensitive around the goal that he is now been linked to big clubs across Europe.
