BRAGA, Portugal (AP) – After exiting the Champions League in the group stage last season, Manchester United can secure a berth in the knockout stages with two games to spare when it takes on Braga on Wednesday.
Alex Ferguson's team has three wins from three and is top of Group H. A win or even a draw in northern Portugal could be enough to put the Red Devils into the knockout stage.
Braga has only one win so far but will be no pushover. The Portuguese team took a 2-0 lead at Old Trafford before losing 3-2 in the last round. Braga also has a strong home record against English clubs, having in the past five years beaten Arsenal and Liverpool.
Cluj hosts Galatasaray in the other group game.
