Club Brugge hosts LASK
Club Brugge hosts LASK in a match from the Champions League playoffs on Wednesday. Let’s see what’s the situation with these two teams before their clash at the Jan Breydelstadion in Brugge in our Champions League predictions.
Club Brugge are enjoying an important lead after the first leg in Linz. The game on Austrian soil ended with a 1-0 win for the Belgian side, thanks to Hans Vanaken’s winning goal after just 10 minutes of playing. The midfielder executed well a penalty kick in Club Brugge’s favour, beating Alexander Schlager from the spot.
Surely this result is not doing LASK a favour before the second leg. The Austrians hoped to achieve some kind of advantage in front of their own fans, but it didn’t happen. Now they must show the best they can do in Brugge.
Because of their Champions League playoff tie, Club Brugge had their last game in the Belgian First Division A postponed. This means that the manager Philippe Clement will use a fresh squad for the decisive second leg against LASK on Wednesday.
In the same time LASK enjoyed a win in their last game in the Austrian Bundesliga. Just few days after the defeat against Brugge, LASK travelled to Wien to face Rapid and achieved a 2-1 win. The striker Marko Raguz scored both goals for the visitors, executing assists from Marvin Potzmann and James Holland. It was a pretty good day for LASK in the capital, but let’s see if they can repeat this result against Club Brugge as well. It’s going to be much more difficult for them to do it.
That’s our Champions League predictions for the Champions League playoff between Club Brugge and LASK on Wednesday . The Belgian team has important advantage after the first leg, but let’s see if they can keep it.
