Preud´homme hopes to capitalise on underdog status

Michel Preud’homme believes Club Brugge face a tough task to get a good result against Leicester City in the Champions League on Wednesday.

The Belgian title-holders have been struggling domestically, collecting just seven points from their opening six league fixtures.

They will be hoping to rediscover their best form at home to the surprise Premier League winners, but Preud’homme has acknowledged it will not be an easy assignment, despite the Foxes’ own struggles early in 2016-17.

“Maybe people are expecting less from us, as in theory they [Leicester] are better than us,” Preud’homme said at a news conference.

“It’s a great story what they did last season, and they proved that you can go far with the perfect mentality.

“Of course they have their own style, and everyone really knows what they have to do. They can play the long ball but also have the quality to play in the small spaces.

“When they lose the ball they work very hard. That’s a basic skill which is often forgotten and that is why they became champions.

“But with good mentality and power we can do it as we have nothing to lose.”

Leicester go into the match at Jan Breydelstadion on the back of a 4-1 loss away to Liverpool, while Club Brugge lost 1-0 at Waasland-Beveren last time out.
