Fellaini: Second leg atmosphere will be different
Manchester United midfielder Marouane Fellaini believes the second leg of their Europa League quarter-final tie against Anderlecht will have a different feel to the first.
The first leg was played in front of 20,000 fans at the Constant Vanden Stock Stadion in Belgium, and Fellaini expects the return leg at Old Trafford's 75,643-seater to be much more intense.
United were held to a 1-1 draw in the first leg due to a late goal from Leander Dendoncker that negated Henrikh Mkhitaryan's opener.
"It will be a tough game again. Every game is tough. When we play against a foreign team or even an English team, they all want to beat Manchester United so they will give everything to try to do that," he told United Review.
"But we have a big chance when we play at Old Trafford. We know how to play there and we will give everything to try to reach the semi-finals. I think Thursday will be a big game and we will do everything to win.
"This game will be different. The stadium is three times bigger than the stadium of Anderlecht, so it will be a completely different atmosphere. Everyone in the club – the players, the manager, the staff – wants to go all the way, so we work for that."
