EUROPE: Champions League – Group Stage – Round 2

  • On a run of seven-consecutive Champions League (CL) group stage defeats, Club Brugge have a tall task ahead if they wish to stop that unfortunate streak anytime soon, as they travel to Spain to take on Atlético Madrid.
  • The European expectations of reigning Europa League (EL) champions, and CL finalists in 2014 and 2016, Atletico will be high again this season. However the Spaniards won just one of their group stage fixtures last year (W1, D4, L1).
  • In fact Atlético’s win at Monaco (1-2) in their CL opener made it ten wins in 15 European games (W10, D4, L1) for La Liga’s (LL) fourth-placed side.
  • Brugge last graced this stage in 2016/17, losing all six group games, scoring just two goals and conceding 14 in the process. In fact the Belgium champions have never tasted victory in Spain, despite playing 11 European games in the country (D4, L7).
  • After defeat at home to Dortmund in their opening match (0-1), Brugge fans must look back to 2005 for their last group stage win.
  • The visitors will hope to channel some of their domestic form into this game – they’ve won eight of nine league matches this season (W8, D1), recording a goal difference of +20.
  • Players to watch

                      Antoine Griezmann failed to find the net against Monaco but does have two goals and three     assists in LL, while Wesley (Brugge) already has six goals in the league – more than any of his teammates.

  • Stat attack:

Atletico have registered a clean sheet in each of their last five European home matches.

  • Brugge have scored in just one of their last five European away games.
  • These two teams have met four times before, with both winning twice, and all home victories.
