Manchester United host Athletic Bilbao on Thursday 8th February, 2012, with kickoff at 20:05. This match is currently being shown LIVE on Channel 5.

After overcoming a pretty decent Ajax side with something to spare United didn’t exactly get a plum draw, but the visit of Bilbao could provide their scouts with an interesting evening, as there has been speculation that a couple of the Basque stars could be lured to Old Trafford this summer. Bilbao will no doubt be keen to start well in an intimidating atmosphere, but the away side are fairly used to big games and won’t be overawed.

Ferguson apparently intends to play a strong side in this game, and must be taken at his word. If United try to win the Europa League it will be a better competition for it.
