Galatasaray vs Club Brugge Prediction

Galatasaray are yet to ensure consistency in their clashes this season and have just two wins to boast of from their last five games in all competitions. The hosts have slumped to the bottom of the ladder in Group A as well and are sporting no more one measly point to their name from their fixtures so far.

It is also worth mentioning that Galatasaray have been alternating between wins and draws in their previous four encounters on home soil. Their last clash here saw them pick up a 2-0 win over Rizespor in the league. Prior to this, Los Blancos edged past them with a narrow 1-0 scorecard.

On the other hand, Club Brugge are currently sitting third on the table, albeit with a slender one-point cushion. The visitors however have been at the losing end in their previous two outings in a running, one of which was at the hands of PSG by a 1-0 scoreline.

Furthermore, Galatasaray have been a much more confident bunch in the comforts of their home this season, and have not stumbled so far in their domestic campaign. Their only two defeats so far came against PSG and Real Madrid, both by narrow 1-0 scorecards.

Moreover, their only previous h2h meeting at this venue saw both teams share the spoils after the clash finished as a stalemate. Given that the two were inseparable in the reverse fixture of this matchup as well, the safest punt would have to be a double chance, backing Galatasaray.

Additionally, the hosts have been hard to breach in the comforts of their home. They have conceded just five goals from their last seven fixtures here. Taking into account that two of their previous three h2h meetings overall have also featured fewer than 2.5 goals on the charts, expect goals to be scarce in this one.
