Prediction on the Champions League: Borussia Dortmund - Club Brugge
Football. Champions League. Group stage, 4th round.
Borussia Dortmund will face the Belgian team, Brugge in the fourth round of the Champions League group stage. Dortmund are a big favourite of the encounter, which is not surprising considering the result of the first round match. Let us remind you that the Germans defeated Brugge in Belgium 3:0. And after the international break, Dortmund played at a high level against Gerta Berlin, especially in the second half.
Borussia Dortmund: leaders of Group F
After three rounds played in Group F, Borussia Dortmund are the leader with 6 points. Die Schwarzgelben started the tournament unsuccessfully, with an away defeat from Lazio. But, they continued with two victories over Zenit 2:0 and Brugge 3:0. Lazio are one point behind Borussia Dortmund, Brugge are two points behind, and Zenit are in 4th position with just one point won. After an international break, Dortmund defeated Hertha in Berlin 5:2. Erling Haaland netted four goals in that game, Guerreiro scored another goal. Note that the first half of the Berlin match was played in an equal fight, and the second half of the meeting, Die Schwarzgelben accelerated as Dortmund scored all five goals in the second half. Borussia Dortmund performed the last minutes at a good level. The weakest match is an away match against Lazio, even the defeat by Bayern at Signal Iduna Park can be added to Favre's team.
Club Brugge: Two wins in a row
The Belgians were somewhat unlucky to play against Dortmund in the doubles. Objectively and with respect for the other teams in the group, but Die Schwarzgelben look stronger and Lazio, even despite the defeat in Rome, and even more so, Zenit. At the same time, we are not sure that if Dortmund secure the first place in the group by the 6th round, Favre's team will play as strong as possible in the last game. Borussia Dortmund are trying to compete with Bayern in Bundesliga, respectively, in this scenario, the focus will be shifted towards the German championship. After a home defeat by Borussia Dortmund, Club Brugge won two matches of the Belgian championship. Away the Black-and-Blues were stronger than Ostend, after a break they beat Kortrijk 1:0. The only goal in that game was scored by Lang in the 60th minute of the meeting. Thanks to this victory, Club Brugge retained the lead in their national championship. Club Brugge have 4 points, the Belgians have good chances for the final third place in the group.
