Club Brugge: Battling on Two Fronts

Last weekend, Club Brugge defeated Mechelen 3-0 with goals scored by Ferran Jutgla, Eduard Sobol and Tajon Buchanan. That result allowed the Farmers to take third place in the Jupiler Pro League. Now, they’re only five points behind first place.

Regarding the UCL, they lead Group B thanks to a perfect 2-0-0 record, five goals for and none against. First, they played host to Bayer Leverkusen and won 1-0. Later, they visited FC Porto and crushed them 4-0.

Defensively, the Farmers are one of four clubs that haven’t allowed a single goal. Offensively, all five goals were scored by a different player. In other words, there’s no I in this team.

The win at Porto was very good; it gives us a lot of confidence and places us well, but it is useless if we do not respond in the next games. We have to continue to maintain that high level,” said Jutgla during a press conference.

He’s not wrong as losing to Atletico Madrid could make them fall to third place. That’s why they must go all-in right from the start despite being the betting online underdogs thanks to a +285 price. Better said, a very tempting underdog.

Atletico Madrid: Trusting in Morata

Prior to the international break, Atletico Madrid lost 2-1 to Real Madrid. Last weekend, they visited Sevilla and bounced back thanks to a 2-0 victory. Marcos Llorente and Alvaro Morata were the scorers.

Besides being the favorites, Morata is the main reason for you to include Los Colchoneros in your soccer picks, especially at +105. The 29-year-old has scored four goals in La Liga, enough to be the team’s top scorer over other world-class strikers such as Antoine Griezmann, Joao Felix and Angel Correa.

Internationally, Los Colchoneros have suffered more than expected. They defeated FC Porto 2-1 in their debut with two very late goals. Mario Hermoso scored the opener in the 91st minute while Griezmann sealed the deal 10 minutes later.

One week later, they visited Bayer Leverkusen and lost 2-0. This time, it was the German side who scored both goals during the last minutes of the game.

Los Colchoneros (+105) are in control of the odds board due to tradition, but as mentioned before, they’ve been struggling to meet expectations. If they want to avoid criticism, they must win overwhelmingly.

Club Brugge vs Atletico Madrid Prediction

Atletico Madrid is a more powerful team, but Club Brugge is highly motivated. Plus, as Los Colchoneros manager Diego Simeone mentioned, the Farmers “have a dynamic style of play with lots of pressure, very attacking with lots of players in the opposition half. Hitting four past Porto speaks volumes.

That being said, the visitors are one of the best teams when it comes to playing on the counter-attack. Therefore, our online betting advice is to go with the draw. It’s going to be a close one.
