Storylines

Club Brugge: They were fortunate to get a point against Lazio in the form of a penalty kick equalizer. The club will have to do better up front if they are able to get a positive result. Brugge struggled to take advantage of a thin Lazio roster due to positive COVID-19 tests and they will need a strong individual performance from Hans Vanaken if they’re to keep pace in such narrow group standings.

Dortmund: The Bundesliga side is coming off a 1-0 win against Zenit after dropping their opening group stage match in Champions League 3-1 to Lazio. The club sits in third place in a relatively open group with narrow margin separating three teams. Dortmund have lost their last four away UCL games and are looking to avoid their first ever five-game road losing streak. The team will need Erling Haaland to continue his scoring ways if they’re to win convincingly against Brugge.

Prediction

Haaland picks up where he last left off and Dortmund get the win. Pick: Dortmund 2, Brugge 1
