Video: United fail to learn from defensive mistakes in opening stages of Brugge clash

It took two minutes for Manchester United to get the first fright of the night with Club Brugge creating the first real chance of the game.

The Red Devils came close to conceding inside the first three minutes after some slack defending lead to the ball being cleared near the line.

Harry Maguire was beaten on the edge of the box, Victor Lindelof completely missed his header, and Nemanja Matic had little time to find a solution.

United didn’t see this as a wake up call and conceded over 12 minutes later.

United need to hold on at the minute. They can’t go two down this early and risk being shut out of the game completely, or caught on the break after going too forward.

We’ll have a video of Brugge’s goal on the website soon…
