Memphis Depay scored twice to take Manchester United to victory over Club Brugge in their Champions League play-off.

Club Brugge took the lead first after Michael Carrick's own goal.

But Depay scored a goal from 25 yards to put United ahead.

Brugge defender Brandon Mechele was sent off for two bookings after 80 minutes.

Manchester United's Fellaini came on as a late substitute for Wayne Rooney to score their third goal, which was a header.


Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal on BT Sport:

"I am happy because of the last goal. We have practised that before. We put him in the penalty area because he has that quality."

Club Brugge manager Michel Preud'homme on BT Sport:

"You have a small chance at home but it is going to be very difficult. We tried to play with our qualities. We missed a lot of players."
