Club Brugge vs Monaco
UEFA Champions League
Date: Wednesday, 24 October 2018
Kick-Off at 17:55 UK/ 18:55 CET
Venue: Jan Breydelstadion (Brugge).
Monaco have seen a troubled start of the new campaign and the horrors have continued after the International break as Thierry Henry’s men suffered a 2-1 loss at Strasbourg, where only the late penalty-kick goal from Youri Tielemans added some consolation to their fifth loss in a row.
Les Monegasques now travel to Belgium for their Champions League clash at Club Bruges looking for their only second win in 13 outings across competitions. They sit at Group A rock-bottom with no points to their name and a loss here would surely see their hopes of making the top 2 cut fading after three games played.
Club Bruges have seen woes of their own and sit above the rivals only for the better goal difference, coming into the match with a three-game winless streak behind them. However, we have seen a tougher side at Jan Breydelstadion and the only loss suffered so far came to Borussia Dortmund (0-1), with six wins and a draw also on the records.
