Real Madrid vs Club Brugge Preview & Prediction 1 October 2019
Champions League, Real Madrid vs Club Brugge

Real Madrid needs to transmit slick form on the domestic stage to the European stage. The reason is after PSG was bent in the first game, inevitably Club Brugge must be defeated in the second match.

Real Madrid will host Club Brugge at the Santiago Bernabeu on Matchday 2 in Group A of the 2019/20 Champions League, Tuesday (10/01/2019).

Madrid and Club Brugge both failed to win on the first matchday. Madrid lost 0-3 at PSG headquarters, while the Belgian representative drew 0-0 at Galatasaray.

Madrid is demanded to win. On paper, Zinedine Zidane’s troops should have been able to get through this second fight brilliantly. The return of Sergio Ramos and Nacho, who were suspended during the fight against PSG, made Madrid stronger. In addition, their performance is also quite convincing.

Last weekend, Madrid won a 0-0 draw in the La Liga derby against Atletico Madrid at Wanda Metropolitano.

Madrid was unbeaten until the 7th game in La Liga this season, and now lead the standings with 15 points (M4 S3 K0). In the last three matches, after the defeat in Paris, they have always always been clean sheets.

Club Brugge are unbeaten in the Belgian premier league this season (M6 S2 K0), have scored 21 goals and conceded just three times. Club Brugge also has a dangerous player in Hans Vanaken, who has scored seven goals in 14 appearances in all competitions this season.

Club Brugge is a potentially difficult opponent. However, Los Blancos has the capacity to close the match at the Bernabeu with a victory.

Estimated Line-up

After the players drain energy in the derby, Zidane is likely to make several rotations. Vinicius Junior or Lucas Vazquez can perform from the early minutes of the match later.

Madrid’s midfield will be inhabited by the trio of Toni Kroos, Casemiro and Luka Modric. They will be relied upon by Zidane for the backbone of Madrid’s game.

Eden Hazard did not yet display his best game. However, the Belgian star is believed to be re-installed as a starter, supporting Karim Benzema in the offensive line.

Madrid (4-3-3): Courtois; Carvajal, Varane, Ramos, Nacho; Modric, Casemiro, Kroos; Vinicius, Benzema, Hazard.

Coach: Zinedine Zidane.

Squad info: Ferland Mendy (injured), Marco Asensio (injured).

Club Brugge (3-5-2): Mignolet; Deli, Mitrovic, Mata; Ricca, Rits, Vanaken, Vormer, Diatta; Dennis, Okereke.

Coach: Philippe Clement.

Squad info: Eder Balanta (injured), Federico Ricca (injured).
