Team News: Standard Liège
Nathan Ngoy (Calf Injury) and Konstantinos Laifis (Hamstring Injury) aren’t available for Standard Liège boss Ronny Deila.
In all likelihood, Les Rouches should kick off with a 3-5-2 formation in the match and select Arnaud Bodart, J. Barrett Laursen, Merveille Bokadi, Noe Dussenne, Gilles Dewaele, William Balikwisha, Gojko Cimirot, Nicolas Raskin, Aron Dönnum, Denis Drăguş and Selim Amallah.

We’re of the thinking that Blauw-Zwart might utilise a 3-5-2 lineup, starting the game with Simon Mignolet, Dedryck Boyata, Brandon Mechele, Denis Odoi, Antonio Nusa, Hans Vanaken, Casper Nielsen, Eder Balanta, Eduard Sobol, Cyle Larin and Roman Yaremchuk.
We’re envisaging that Standard Liège might well have a job on their hands to register a score against this Club Brugge side who we reckon should do enough to score at the other end and edge ahead.
