"It is not only quality [but luck, too], and I think Manchester United knows and remembers that fantastically when they won the Champions League in 1999".
Van Gaal insisted on United's pre-season tour that he would leave Old Trafford when his contract expires in 18 months' time.
Van Gaal confirmed at his pre-match press conference that Carrick, Herrera and Valencia have "minor injuries" and are not likely to feature at Old Trafford.
"I think with how the other game went, losing 2-1 to PSV, we know that our home games in the Champions League are crucial to getting through the group", says United centre-back Chris Smalling.

Teams from England have failed to make an impact in Europe in recent seasons, but Ozil has little doubt they will soon be challenging the likes of Bayern Munich, Barcelona and Real Madrid once more.

Van Gaal insists his team are making good progress, however.
"So I am just buzzing to be back now and happy to be back in the fold".
