Although Bailly is only 22 with less than 100 first-team matches to his name, he has good experience in the Europa League after reaching last season's semi-finals with old club Villarreal. He was knocked out by beaten finalists Liverpool and thus hopes to go one stage further with United this campaign.
“Playing in the semi-final was something very special as that was the first time for me that I had succeeded in reaching such a round of a competition," he told MUTV. “Now I have more experience, this is the second time I have played in this competition and I hope that will help.
“If we keep working hard as a team and keep our spirit going I hope we can achieve the same or go even better and bring the trophy home. The first thing we need to do though is think step-by-step and take each game as it comes. We need to focus on the next game and then we'll see what happens in the future."
