In Group A, the dice have already fallen in the fight for the knockout round. With Paris St. Germain and Real Madrid, the two favorites have already secured the ticket for the next round. While the French champions are no longer able to push away from the first place, it is also clear that the Madrilenians will move in second in the round of the last 16.
Bruges vs Real Madrid Soccer Betting Tips
Only the third place and the associated hibernation in the Europa League is not yet fully understood. The better starting position but has the Bruges, who only has to hope that Galatasaray expected to lose in Paris.
At the same time, of course, the Belgians would also have third place in a win. Between Bruges and Real Madrid, surprisingly low odds are offered on a home win of the supposed underdogs.
This is primarily due to the fact that the guests from the Spanish capital are probably already thinking of “El Clásico” next week. Coach Zinedine Zidane is likely to spare some key players and send an improved B team to the field on Wednesday. Whether this is then able to drive a motivated homeowners a threesome, seems questionable.
But since the Galactics have enough quality in the absence of Sergio Ramos or Toni Kroos to put problems for the Clement team, we would face Brugge vs Real Madrid refrain from a hint on the host. Instead, we think it’s possible that only one of the two teams will score.
Bruges – Statistics & Current Form
In the Belgian league Club Bruges is well on its way to finishing first in the regular season. 13 of the 17 matches so far have been won by the runner-up of the previous year. There were also three draws and only one defeat.
Also on the international stage, the team of Phillipe Clement is on the verge of achieving the intended goal. Thanks to the last-minute goal to Galatasaray’s 1-1 draw two weeks ago, there is much to suggest that the Blau-Schwarten will finish Group A in third.
Only if the Turks get at least two points more at Paris St. Germain on the final day than Bruges at home against Real Madrid, would the Royal Association actually drop back to fourth place. Gladly you would not rely on Thomas Tuchel’s protected in Bruges, but even book the ticket for the Europa League semi-final with a surprise coup.
The leader of the highest Belgian league does not seem to be completely hopeless, because already in the recent past last year’s preliminary round opponent of Borussia Dortmund was able to put supposedly favorites to the test at home.
Brugge were unbeaten in six consecutive Champions League matches, for example, before a niggling home defeat at PSG on Matchday 3. Among other things, the Clement team fought in the first leg at Real Madrid, a more than impressive 2-2 draw.
However, if the two goals scored in the first half at the Estadio Santiago de Bernabeu as well as the mentioned goals in stoppage time in Istanbul are closed, there are zero goals for Hans Vanaken and Co. in the statistics.
In three out of five games, the Belgians thus remained without success. Consequently, between Bruges and Real Madrid a prediction regarding a further zero number from a blue-black point of view certainly does not go in the completely wrong direction.
In the league, the 15-time national champion did not last as well with the goal scoring not so easy. Only in one of the most recent nine competitive games at national level, there were more than two goals for Bruges. Is the young, inexperienced, but very agile offensive on Wednesday again empty?
This is supported by the fact that with Krepin Diatta and Clinton Mata two players have to watch closed. Both saw in the course of the auspicious jubilee after the 1: 1 against Galatasaray the yellow-red card.
Expected formation of Bruges:
➱ Mignolet; Kossounou, Mechele, Deli, Ricca; Alvarez; Rits, Vanaken, Schrijvers, Bonaventure; Okereke

Real Madrid – Statistics & Current Form
Football fans will have to wait one week before the highly anticipated “Clásico” between Real Madrid and Barcelona on December 18th. Before that, however, the royals still have to perform two compulsory tasks.
On Wednesday, the meaningless Champions League match at the Jan Breydel Stadium is on the program and on Sunday the galactic train travels to Valencia to take with all other participants of the premier class at best, all three points.
In view of this harsh program, it is not surprising that coach Zinedine Zidane has already announced that he will spare some top performers. Sergio Ramos or Toni Kroos did not even begin their journey to Belgium. James Rodriguez, Marco Asensio, Eden Hazard, Marcelo or Lucas Vazquez are missing due to injuries.
We will therefore experience an improved B-Elf on the course, but still has the quality to win in Bruges. Especially on the defensive last but was a significant increase can be seen. In four of La Liga’s most recent six matches, the Madrid were without a clean sheet. In the Champions League, the count-against statistics is anything but good.
The Spanish top club have lost three of the last eight games in the premier class and conceded in all three cases at least three goals. In the course of the current group stage only at home against Galatasaray a “clean sheet” jumped out (6: 0).
This may also be the reason why the odds for the “Both teams to score” were set quite low between Bruges and Real Madrid. Nevertheless, we think it is not unlikely that the Zidane-Eleven wants to maintain the positive momentum after last good results and therefore will act consistently especially in the game against the ball.
Expected formation of Real Madrid:
➱ Courtois; Militao, Varane, Nacho, Mendy; Casemiro, Valverde, Modric; Rodrygo, Benzema, Vinicius
