Club Brugge started their Champions League campaign off with a 0-0 draw at home to Galatasaray. It’s not the worst result but it was also the most winnable game in the group for them. If they have any hopes of finishing in the Europa League-attaining third spot, let alone progress to the round of 16, they will need huge results starting against Real Madrid.

Real Madrid vs. Club Brugge preview 2019 take on the Los Blancos
Real Madrid, who are among the 2019 UEFA Champions League favorites, are coming off a heavy 3-0 away defeat to Paris Saint-Germain. It was all the more embarrassing considering Zinedine Zidane’s men faced a PSG side without Neymar, Kylian Mbappe or Edinson Cavani. They will now look to get back on track against Club Brugge. But given the side’s inconsistent form since last season — including poor results in La Liga so far — the Belgian side probably have their best opportunity to take points away the Spanish giants.
- Real Madrid have lost three of their last seven Champions League group stage games since the start of the 2017/18 season.
- Club Brugges have only won once in their last seven Champions League group stage games since the start of the 2017/18 season.
