Wayne Rooney believes it is vital Manchester United are back mixing it with the continent's elite.
The United captain netted a hat-trick against Club Brugge to ensure his side a 4-0 victory in Belgium and progression to the group stages.
''To go through to the group stage after being out of it last year is a great result. We look forward to the draw now tomorrow [Thursday],'' the United captain said.
''It was a big disappointment last year not to challenge in it. We didn't think it would be as comfortable as it was, but it was vital we went through any way we could.
''Over the two legs we deserved that. We'll enjoy the draw and it is nice to be back in there again.''
Louis van Gaal has a plan to solve his lack of strikers in the squad: play Marouane Fellani up front.
The Manchester United boss has admitted he will utilise the big Belgian, who scored against Club Brugge last week, as a forward this year.
"He can play in a nine position and a 10," United manager Van Gaal said.
"He can also play at six and eight, but this year he shall play more at nine and 10 because there we have other players."
Club Brugge boss Michel Preud'homme believes his side need divine intervention to eliminate Manchester United on Wednesday night.
The Belgians lost 3-1 at Old Trafford last week, so will need to win by two clear goals at home this week.
"Miracles happen sometimes, but they are two goals in front and they are a very professional team," Preud'homme said.
"To get a miracle, you need to be perfect and you need the other to not play at his best potential. We have a lot of players out, too.
"If we want to have a chance, we have to be perfect. It will be very difficult, but let's pray."
