📋 Team News: Club Brugge
Jack Hendry (Biceps femoris muscle injury) and Andreas Skov Olsen (Hip Injury) are unavailable for Club Brugge gaffer Rik De Mil. Brandon Mechele will not be able to play in this game through being suspended.
We are thinking that Blauw-Zwart will possibly use a 5-3-2 system this time, beginning the first half with Simon Mignolet, Clinton Mata, Jorne Spileers, Abakar Sylla, Tajon Buchanan, Bjorn Meijer, Mats Rits, Casper Nielsen, Hans Vanaken, Ferran Jutgla and Noa Lang.
🗞️ Team News: Standard Liège
Standard Liège manager Ronny Deila has multiple availability issues to deal with. Gilles Dewaele (Cruciate Ligament Rupture), Ibe Hautekiet (Finger Injury) and Nathan Ngoy (Hamstring Injury) won’t be making appearances.
We reckon that Les Rouches might elect for a 3-4-2-1 system with a starting lineup of Arnaud Bodart, Noe Dussenne, Merveille Bokadi, Konstantinos Laifis, Marlon Fossey, Aron Doennum, Gojko Cimirot, Steven Alzate, William Balikwisha, Philip Zinckernagel and Noah Ohio.
We feel that Club Brugge should get a couple of goals in this one against Standard Liège, who could well struggle to break down their defence.
We’re therefore anticipating a fairly comfortable 2-0 victory for Club Brugge at the conclusion of the game.
