Schneiderlin confident United can defeat Wolfsburg.

Manchester United midfielder Morgan Schneiderlin is confident the Red Devils can defeat Wolfsburg away from home to qualify for the second round of the UEFA Champions League.

United face the Bundesliga side on Tuesday, and need a win to ensure qualification or else they will have to rely on CSKA Moscow to prevent PSV Eindhoven from winning the other game on Tuesday night.

Asked if United defeating Wolfsburg will be hard, he said as quoted: "It is but we’re confident we can do it. We beat them at home and, to go through to the next round, we don’t want to hope for CSKA Moscow to win or get a result in Eindhoven.

"We have the destiny in our hands and know what we have to do to get through. It’s very important for the football club and for the players to get to the next stage and we are going out to win in Wolfsburg. They are a very good team and it’s never easy in Germany but we will prepare for this game as though it was the final of the Champions League.

"The Champions League group stages are important but the real aspect of the competition is the knockout stage," he added. "You know the best 16 teams in Europe are involved and we are looking forward to trying to put Manchester United in this category.

"Last year, we did not have the Champions League here so we are determined to get among the best teams in Europe. After that, anything is possible. We know over two games in the knockout stages, anything can happen and we really want to get there, step up and give our best."
