Atletico Madrid vs Club Brugge
UEFA – Champions League
Date: Wednesday, 3 October 2018
Kick-Off at 20:00 UK
Venue: Estadio Wanda Metropolitano (Madrid).
Atletico Madrid are going to search for their new three points win the Wednesday’s evening clash against Club Brugge.
The hosts have improved their game lately and they tied five matches without losing in all competitions.
Diego Simeone’s side remained unbeaten in the latest derby match away to Real Madrid and although it seemed they have spilled too many points, they got back in the title race.
Los Colchoneros are just two points behind the top spot and we can count on them to get involved in the title race.
In the last three matches, Atletico Madrid haven’t conceded a goal and in the opening round of the Champions League they’ve celebrated away to Monaco.
Club Brugge are excellent in the domestic championship as they’ve missed the chance to win just once in nine rounds played so far.
In the last two matches they were very efficient as Wesley and the lads scored eight goals while keeping their net intact on the other side.
The Belgians are scoring three goals per match in average and have a decent advantage over the closest rivals in the First Division A.
However, Brugge lost to Borussia Dortmund in the previous Champions League round and they have a tough task to get their ticket for the knockout stage.

This is going to be the first occasion for both sides to meet each other as they didn’t have this opportunity in the past.
Atletico Madrid vs Club Brugge: Prediction
Atletico Madrid are favourites in this one and they should be capable of booking another valuable victory which would continue their excellent streak. We are expecting them to meet the expectations and win comfortably.
It seems that the hosts found their recognizable defensive positioning and they are now really hard to crack. Although Club Brugge are very dangerous in the front, we believe Atletico Madrid are going to keep their net intact in this one.
