Lazio vs Club Brugge Prediction: UEFA Champions League on 08.12.2020
The second spot in Group F is yet to be decided, and the two sides that are in direct competition for a place behind Borussia Dortmund meet this week.
Champions League Preview
Not many people could have foreseen Lazio struggling for points on the final matchday after picking up a win against Borussia Dortmund on the opening night. However, draws have become a big problem for Lazio, as they have been unable to get over the line. Three draws in five games means that they have just a two point lead over Club Brugge coming into this game, which will mean that a win for the away side will mean that Lazio will need to play in the Europa League after Christmas. Lazio are still unbeaten, which will give them huge confidence coming into this game, and they have scored nine goals in three games. However, they will need to improve following their 1-1 draw against Borussia Dortmund last time out. That was also the same scoreline as the previous meeting between Lazio and Club Brugge on matchday two.
This would have been the target for Club Brugge, as they would have been hoping to still be in with a chance of qualification on the final day. They will be aware that a win will be enough to put them through to the next round, and they would have taken confidence from the 1-1 scoreline that they achieved against Lazio last time out. Brugge have won two games in the competition this season, with these wins both coming against Zenit. They won their most recent game against Zenit 3-0, with Charles De Ketelaere, Hans Vanaken and Noa Lang scoring the goals in that big win.
