Club Brugge vs Galatasaray Prediction & Match Preview

Club Brugge vs Galatasaray
Champions League
Date: Wednesday, 18 September 2019
Kick-off at 17:55 UK/ 18:55 CET
Venue: Jan Breydel Stadion (Brugge).

Club Bruges has the opportunity to take the top spot in their domestic league table with the available match in hand. Coupled with their unbeaten status so far, and incredible defensive performances, the tag of the hot favorites to lift the title at the end of the season easily goes to the squad. The fall from grace of Genk has equally contributed to this scenario, but still kudos to Bruges for taking advantage of the situation.

With them enjoying home status for the day, they are even more of a threat, and Galatasaray, who’s been inconsistent so far this campaign, will have their hands full this Wednesday.

While Gala managed to trump the indomitable Istanbul Basaksehir right at the end of their run last campaign, which led to the former lifting the Super Lig crown, they have failed to replicate that form this time around.

At present, they possess the fifth position in the table, and could so far register just five goals in total. This is in severe contrast to their run in the earlier edition of the competition, which had them slotting in goals at a rate of more than two per fixture.

Club Brugge vs Galatasaray Prediction

The Blue-Blacks are unbeaten so far this season and has been inspirational in the Pro League. They have the top-most spot in sights, and with them being the sole unbeaten squad in the competition, bookies are rallying behind the unit to seal the title easily.

On top of this form, the unit has the home advantage, where they have been unbeaten in the last six months.

On the contrary, their opposite number was winless in three of their former five fixtures and lost five of their prior seven road trips as well. In addition, they are winless against this opponent in the previous two decades and conceded twice or more in six of their last seven.

Finally, coupled to all these, taking into account the extraordinary defensive returns of the hosts, they are rightfully adjudged as the favorites.
