Club Brugge will win

Club Brugge – Galatasaray Match Prediction | 18-09-2019 12:55

Both sides won 2-1 in their home game, with Brugge winning 4-2 in the shoot-out. Their only previous meeting was in the 1987-88 UEFA Cup, when a 5-0 home win after extra time in the second leg saw the Belgians progress to the quarter-finals despite losing the first leg 3-0. Brugge and Dortmund have met twice in European football, with their most recent fixtures seeing the Belgian team progress from their Champions League third-round qualifier in 2003-04 on penalties.

Secondly, its hard to avoid a small punt on the visitors getting a positive result at the prices. Given that theyve conceded both less goals and less expected goals away from home than the hosts have a home, Basaksehir Draw No Bet is worth a go. Gala have offered plenty going forward on their own patch, while theyre very tough to beat, though theyre up against one hell of a defence. Moreover, if anyone is going to go to Trk Telekom Arena and deliver a smash-and-grab, then its Basaksehir, whore no strangers to defending well before stealing a goal.

The visitors have certainly steadied the ship following last seasons failings. Both of those finishes were considered poor for Dortmund, who limped in to fourth place in the Bundesliga last term. Thats unlikely to happen this time around, with Favre invigorating the squad and putting in an early challenge to Bayern. The Bundesliga outfit finished a distant third behind Tottenham and Real Madrid, before going out in the second knockout round of the Europa League to Red Bull Salzburg.

3Tips for you!

Club Brugge are coming off the back of a campaign in which they missed out on the league title, with Genk pipping them to first place. Theyve never really been able to take that next step forward when it comes to challenging with the top sides around the continent, but theyre certainly consistent. Now, they are once again considered to be favourites to reclaim the crown, although many fans are more interested (right now) in seeing what theyve got to offer on a European scale.

The hosts are the early pacesetters in Belgium, kicking off with six wins and a draw from their first seven. That unbeaten start will have given them plenty of confidence, but its going to be tough for them to bridge the gap between Dortmund, Monaco and Atletico. However, theyre unlikely to underperform again. The Belgians will hope that the trio all repeat their failings of last season with each side failing to make it out of their group.

Theyre the only team to avoid defeat at home, while theyre the top scorers too, as theyve scored no less than 45 times at Trk Telekom Arena. As far as delivering the goods at home goes, Galatasaray have been the best in the business in Turkey this season. With 12 wins, four draws and zero losses in front of their own fans, Fatih Terims men have the best home record in the division.

LASK Linz vs Club Brugge Prediction & Match Preview

The win against Eintracht Frankfurt saw Abdou Diallo, Marius Wolf and Paco Alcacer all score. Borussia Dortmund are unbeaten in competitive matches so far this season, winning three and drawing one of the four they have played. Axel Witsels late equaliser forced extra time against Geuther Furth in an unconvincing DFB Pokal win Marco Reus netting the winner in the final minute of the extra period but their league campaign started in more convincing fashion. They won 4-1 at home to RB Leipzig and 3-1 against Eintracht Frankfurt either side of a goalless draw with Hannover 96.

When Galatasaray drew away against Konyaspor a few weeks ago, they were in danger of slipping behind Basaksehir, though their rivals lost during that round of fixtures. They made light work of beating a useful Besiktas side at this venue a fortnight ago, while they battled hard to emerge victorious from their away match against Rizespor last time out. After that lucky break, Gala have kicked on, winning each of their last two.

Before all of that, though, weve got a few more important ties to settle. The UEFA Champions League qualifying journey continues this week, as a series of teams attempt to negotiate their way through the third round. Getting to that point opens the door for a sea of possibilities, which includes potential trips abroad to take on some of the biggest and best clubs that Europe has to offer. Theyre just a few steps away now from reaching the group stages which, in itself, is an incredibly exciting prospect.
