Club Brugge Prediction

Belgian side Club Brugge enter the Europa League at the round of 16 stage as they finished in third spot in their Champions League Group A behind group winners, Borussia Dortmund and runners-up, Atletico Madrid, and they hold home advantage in their first leg clash with Salzburg on Thursday night.

Club Brugge managed just one win during the group stages which was a resounding 4-0 win away at French club Monaco who were basically everyone’s whipping boys under former inexperienced manager Thierry Henry.

Club Brugge have managed to gain just one win since the turn of the year which was a 2-1 win away at Oostende in the Belgian First Division A, but otherwise they’ve lost at home to Sporting Charleroi and drawn with Gent and Cercle Brugge – and it’s not ideal preparation for a European clash.

In addition, Club Brugge have recorded just one home win from their last five matches in the Europa League and current form suggest this could be a difficult encounter.


Key-Facts – Club Brugge v Salzburg

  • Club Brugge have won just 1 of their last 5 at home in the Europa League
  • Salzburg finished with a 100% winning record in Group B
  • Salzburg have lost just 2 of their last 13 away from home at this level


Salzburg Prediction

Salzburg on the other hand, come into this round of 16 tie in the Europa League in positive spirits as they’ve now put together an amazing 43-match unbeaten run in all competitions (including club friendlies), so they’ll fancy their chances of getting a result in Brugge on Thursday night.

The Austrian club fairly breezed through the group stages of this competition, recording a 100% winning record across all six matches which included home and away wins over Celtic, RB Leipzig and Rosenborg which is no mean feat at this level.

The visitors have suffered just two defeats in their last 13 away matches in the Europa League which were defeats at Lazio and Marseille, but they head inot this first leg having won their last three away matches on the trot, scoring a total of 10 goals and conceding 5 in reply.

Salzburg also possess dangerous striker Dabour who was top scorer during the group stages and has bagged 9 goals to date, along with Prevljak (9 goals), Minamino and Wolf (4 goals apiece).

Betting Tips Verdict

Club Brugge have certainly not been at their best and with Salzburg’s firepower, the visitors stand every chance of taking a lead back to Austria for the second leg.
