MANCHESTER UNITED go up against Athletic Club less than 24 hours after facing French opposition Lens.
The Red Devils beat Lens 3-1 at Old Trafford on Saturday but are now already back in action over in Dublin.
And similar to last year, Erik ten Hag's men won't have much time to enjoy the result.
United will be in unfamiliar territory as this will be the first time that the English giants have played in Dublin since Jose Mourinho was in charge six years ago.
Furthermore, Athletic have got an impressive record against the Red Devils so it could be a tough test for the Premier League outfit.
