Lazio vs Club Brugge
UEFA Champions League
Date: Tuesday, 8 December 2020
Kick-off at 17:55 UK/ 18:55 CET
Venue: Stadio Olimpico (Rome).
Since Dortmund has already confirmed their berth in the playoffs this season, the remaining spot is up for grabs in Group F of the Champions League group matches.
Having lost none of their CL clashes in the group so far this term, Lazio is the strongest contender of the remaining lot in the group.
However, Club Brugge is just two points behind the host and could easily trade places on the table with a win in the final group fixture.
Lazio was caught in a draw in their previous CL match with Dortmund with a 1-1 scoreline. Meanwhile, the Belgian Outfits will visit on the back of a 3-0 win at home against Zenit in the previous CL encounter.
Lazio vs Club Brugge Head-to-head (h2h)
- Their previous encounter in the 2020 Champions League resulted in a 1-1 draw at Brugge.
- The host has won and lost two each in their four encounters with other clubs from Belgium.
- The visitor has won only one of their last ten fixtures, with other Italian sides across all major contests.
- The Belgian outfits have scored no goals in their recent four clashes with other clubs from Italy.
Lazio vs Club Brugge Prediction
In the reverse fixture, Lazio’s visit didn’t turn out to be successful in the CL schedule. The match had ended in a draw and all their away games in the group stage have resulted in the same outcome this term.
In the meantime, Club Brugge has only two wins in their five CL group stage fixtures until now.
The Italian side landed only 7 goal attempts with just 3 shots hitting the target in their reverse fixture visit to Brugge, earlier in their CL schedule. Besides, just 2 corner kicks in ninety minutes showed they played more defensively in that game.
On the other hand, Club Brugge rained 7 corner kicks but had a similar 3 shots hit the target. This shows the Belgian side lacks strikers in-form to convert chances into goals.
Hence, the match is likely to see fewer goals and the tip for under 3.5 goals will probably serve the purpose from the goals area.
The host has good use of the ground advantage and is backed by two CL home wins prior to the final one in the group stages.
Based on these stats, the home win in full-time will probably be the best bet for the punters considering their ground advantage and squad strength in the fixture.
