Real Madrid were roundly beaten in the opening group stage fixture by Paris Saint-Germain. Anything but a victory at home to Club Brugge will not be tolerated.

Our Betting Tips

It hasn’t been the easiest start to the season for Real Madrid – and the defeat to PSG would have come as a serious blow. But at home the Spanish giant should have no problem picking up their first Champions League points of the campaign.

REAL MADRID TO WIN TO NIL

Club Brugge were unable to get off the mark at home to Galatasaray and it is likely that the Belgian side will defend in numbers here. Real should win but they might not get a lot of goals.

TOTAL GOALS – 2

Real Madrid have mostly waited until the second half to get into gear this season – and with the pressure on Zinedine Zidane’s men to win the Champions League, most of the goal action may well be in the second half.

Statistics

Head to Head

These two clubs have only ever met on two occasions before – in the 1976/77 European Cup. A 2-0 home win for the Belgian side was followed by a 0-0 draw in Spain to see Club Brugge through.

Stats

  • After reaching the Champions League final on three successive occasions, Real Madrid were knocked out at the round of 16 stage last year by eventual semi-finalists Ajax.
  • Club Brugge have never made it further than the group stage in the Champions League and were unable to beat Real Madrid’s city rivals Atletico at that stage last season.
  • Although Real Madrid hold the record for most European Cup/Champions League titles they have now lost their last two home games in UEFA competition – 0-3 and 1-4.
  • Club Brugge drew 0-0 with Galatasaray on match day one – and have now drawn the last three Champions League games without scoring a single goal.

Our Prediction for Real Madrid vs Club Brugge

Real Madrid to win

There is a feeling that this Real Madrid side do not have the vitality and talent needed to win the Champions League. But it would seem likely that they will progress from the group and three points should be won at home in this one.
