United have started off their Premier League campaign with two positive results and now the Red Devils focus their attention to the midweek Champions League play-off against Belgian side Brugge.
Manager van Gaal is happy with how his team have started so far this season but the Dutchman is expecting a tough battle in their first European encounter of the campaign.
Van Gaal said: "I think when you win two times then you shall have a lot of confidence. But every match is difficult and Belgian teams can play very compactly, they can defend and a team always has a chance of winning.
"Every team has a chance and if they score out of that chance then it shall be very difficult."
