Club Brugge vs Manchester United: Score, Goals and Highlights


Wayne Rooney scored his first Champions League hattrick with Manchester United in over a decade as the Red Devils booked their place in the group stages with a thumping 4-0 win over Club Brugge in their second leg of the Qualifiers.

Chasing the game from the start, Brugge were caught unaware by Memphis Depay, the star of the first leg. Depay threaded a lovely ball to Wayne Rooney, who put Manchester United in the lead with a perfect close range chip.

The Manchester United captain found his goalscoring form in an important game and scored his second early in the second half after a lovely cross from Herrera.

Wayne Rooney bagged a Champions league hattrick on the hour mark after a clever ball from Juan Mata.  

Manchester United turned their comfortable lead into a thumping when Herrera was sent through on goal by Bastian Schweinsteiger. The Spaniard celebrated his first start of the season with a well taken goal.

Manchester United could have added to their tally from close range when the away side were awarded a penalty in the 80th minute.  Mexican striker, Javier Hernandez failed to convert from the spot.

Manchester United won the game 7-1 on aggregate and will now prepare for their crucial Premier League clash against Swansea this weekend, before hosting Liverpool at Old Trafford after the international break.
