Leicester vs Club Brugge Predictions

Leicester’s domestic form is a complete polar opposite to their Champions League showings, and it only takes a glance at the respective tables to see that. In the Premier League, following their 2-1 defeat to Watford on Saturday, they have 12 points from 12 games. In the Champions League they have managed ten points from just four outings.

This ten point total predictably leaves them top of their Champions League group and just a point off automatic qualification to the knockout stages. A win on Tuesday would almost seal the top spot for them as well.

Not only have they performed excellently in terms of results in the Champions League, but they have managed to keep a clean sheet in all four of their games so far, meaning they are rapidly becoming the best ever debutants in the Champions League group stages.

Club Brugge, on the other hand, are really struggling both domestically and continentally. Their 1-0 win on Friday made it three wins in their last eight games in all competitions. This is simply not good enough for a side expected to dominate the Belgian Pro League, and it leaves them 4th in the table after 15 games.

In the Champions League alone they have lost all four of their group games so far, scoring just one goal and conceding ten at the other end. The chances of Leicester’s clean sheet streak continuing on Tuesday are looking very good indeed.

At the other end of the pitch they should be able to forge a fair few opportunities. Club Brugge have already conceded three at home to Leicester and lost 4-0 away to Copenhagen as well. Riyad Mahrez has only managed two goals in the Premier League this season, but in the Champions League he has bagged three to make him their top scorer for the season. Backing him for our anytime goalscorer predictions is a very good choice.

Leicester have a great chance of sealing qualification here, and I expect them to do so in comfortable fashion. Odds of 2.250 for a Leicester -1.5 Asian Handicap Win look very good value, and I’m backing a 3-0 correct score prediction at 8/1 as well.
