Dortmund vs Club Brugge
UEFA Champions League
Date: Wednesday, 28 November 2018
Kick-Off at 20:00 UK / 21:00 CET
Venue: Signal-Iduna-Park (Dortmund).
Dortmund host Club Brugge targeting to secure a place in the last 16 round of the competition. They need to win or draw on Wednesday night at Signal-Iduna-Park being five points off the Belgian champions.
The hosts are really enjoying their life under Dieter Hecking. They are lock on points with Atletico Madrid at the very top of the Group A standings and have the destiny in their own hands as wins in last two games secure them the top spot finish and an easier opponent in the knockout stage.
Apart from a strong Champions League form, Die Schwarzgelben are cruising towards ending Bayern Munich’s domination in domestic affairs. Borussia sit at the very top of the Bundesliga standings after 12 rounds of the competition. They are seven points clear off Eintracht Frankfurt in second place after a 1-2 victory over Mainz 05 away at OPEL Arena on Saturday afternoon.
Dortmund vs Club Brugge: Head-to-head
The two teams have a dramatic head to head history.
They played each other in two separate two-leg ties, both teams winning two apiece (home fixtures each).
Their previous meeting took place at the start of this term of the Champions League in mid-September when Dortmund took a narrow 0-1 victory at Jan Breydelstadion via Christian Pulisic winner five minutes from time.
Dortmund vs Club Brugge: Prediction
Dortmund have a deadly attacking line-up led by the likes of Paco Alcacer, Marco Reus, Jadon Sancho and Christian Pulisic. They will all be eager to take advantage of clear holes in Club Brugge’s defensive line as the Belgians conceded three goals in a shocking home defeat to Zulte-Waregem on Friday evening.
Ivan Leko’s men thus lost two on the bounce in First Division A conceding five goals in the process. We can hardly imagine them holding the likes of Dortmund down here. The hosts should be in full control from the very get go and we will back them to clinch an easy victory in a straightforward affair.
