Club Brugge will be looking for a repeat result of the 4-2 First Division A triumph over Charleroi.
In that game, Club Brugge had 57% possession and 25 shots on goal with 10 on target. For Club Brugge, the goals were scored by Igor Thiago (27'), Brandon Mechele (45'), Antonio Nusa (87') and Ferrán Jutglà (95'). Charleroi got 14 attempts on goal with 8 on target. Parfait Guiagon (6') and Vetle Dragsnes (42') scored for Charleroi.
Club Brugge have been on a persistent run of goalscoring form, netting every time they’ve gone out to play in their last 6 games.
They have claimed a sum of 21 during that period while also conceding a total of 9. While that may be of interest, time will tell whether that pattern might be maintained in this next match.
After tasting defeat last time out to Trabzonspor in Super Lig action, Beşiktaş and their fans will hope to get a better result this time.
In that game, Beşiktaş managed 71% possession and 8 attempts on goal with 1 of them on target. Trabzonspor had 8 attempts on goal with 5 of them on target. Paul Onuachu (29'), Anastasios Bakasetas (41') and Edin Višća (61') scored for Trabzonspor.

Team News: Club Brugge
Bjorn Meijer (Abdominal muscles injury), Tajon Buchanan (Hamstring Injury), Josef Bursik (Torn Knee Ligament) and Chemsdine Talbi (Torn Knee Ligament) will not be taking part for Club Brugge boss Ronny Deila.
It’s our opinion that Blauw-Zwart will possibly use a 4-4-2 system in the match, utilising Simon Mignolet, Kyriani Sabbe, Brandon Mechele, Jorne Spileers, Maxim De Cuyper, Andreas Skov Olsen, Hugo Vetlesen, Raphael Onyedika, Michal Skoras, Hans Vanaken and Thiago Rodrigues.
Team News: Beşiktaş
Beşiktaş manager Şenol Güneş has to currently contend with reduced team options. Tayyip Talha Sanuc (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) and Emrecan Uzunhan (inflamation of Biceps) will miss out on this game.
We believe Kara Kartallar will likely utilise a 4-1-2-3 lineup, going with Mert Gunok, Valentin Rosier, Eric Bailly, Daniel Amartey, Arthur Masuaku, Amir Hadziahmetovic, Demir Tiknaz, Gedson Fernandes, Milot Rashica, Vincent Aboubakar and Jackson Muleka.
Our thinking is that Beşiktaş will need to apply a lot of pressure to find the net against this Club Brugge outfit who should be able to grind out a win.
We therefore see a narrow 1-0 advantage for Club Brugge at the end of this one.
