​Club Brugge lose star Dennis for Man Utd clash

Club Brugge have suffered a blow with the news that Emmanuel Dennis is set to miss their second leg against Manchester United in the Europa League.

The Belgian side are hoping to go through after securing a 1-1 draw at home in the first leg.

But they must go to Old Trafford without Dennis, who was the man of the match in the first leg.

The Nigerian suffered an injury in their league game against Charleroi at the weekend, per the Daily Mail.

Another who is out of the game is defender Eder Balanta, who is suspended.

Krepin Diatta is another doubt, as the Senegalese winger may not recover in time to take his place in the 18 man squad.

But Dennis is the biggest absence, as he has nine goals in 31 games for Brugge this season.
