Real Madrid – Brugge, Champions League Prediction
ANALYSIS AND PREDICTION FOR REAL MADRID - BRUGGE
Real Madrid were impressive with their tactical preparation and the way they played on the derby with Atletico on Saturday. In recent games, Los Blancos’ level has definitely been higher, and at the moment they seem an idea more reliable than the start of the season. However, some of the biggest stars still can’t show their potential. It’s about Hazard, who looks like Sanchez at Man United after his transfer from Arsenal.
Bruges couldn’t beat Galatasaray at home, which is at paper their easiest match. They will now have to take on points from far tougher matches. However, the goal of the Belgians is the title on the home stage, and here in a similar group any better performance and every stronger result is a bonus. Bruges are a well-prepared team, but their qualities are not particularly close to those of Real Madrid.
Expert view : Real Madrid lost their first game disastrously and fans are extremely unhappy with that. We are expecting a reaction from the 13-time Champions League winners. We think they will start the match very good and score in the 1st half. Their defense is good enough to withstand a clean sheet against Bruges for all 90 minutes. Real Madrid is a solid favorite and our tip here is 1st half – Real Madrid win at 1.62.
