Bitesize Prediction: Club Brugge vs Bayer Leverkusen – 07/09/22

Competition: Champions League

Market: Club Brugge double chance

Odds: 8/11 @ 888sport

Looking to open their Champions League adventure with a statement on home soil, Club Brugge will host a struggling Bayer Leverkusen on Wednesday night.

Starting with the hosts, while Club Brugge might appear to be in a real battle to defend their domestic crown this season, the Belgium-based giants are in the midst of a recent purple patch. Picking up some perfect momentum over the weekend as they picked up local bragging rights against Cercle Brugge thanks to a 4-0 romp, Head Coach Carl Hoefkens should find the mood in his camp at a high. Looking to lay down an early marker and cause somewhat of an upset when they open their Champions League adventure on Wednesday night, the Boeren are enjoying a four-match winning run. With their eye-catching run of form underlined by a thumping 3-0 victory against OH Leuven last month, it should be highlighted that Hoefkens’ high-flying side have racked up 12 strikes on their four-match winning run.

As for the visitors, while Club Brugge might be in the midst of an impressive recent flurry, the same cannot be said for a struggling Bayer Leverkusen side. Despite gaining plenty of praise from across Germany last season as they snatched a shock bronze medal finish in the Bundesliga, Head Coach Gerardo Seoane has seen his side come crashing back down to earth. Last seen over the weekend getting hit with an action-packed 3-2 loss at home against league leaders Freiburg, Die Werkself have now lost four of their opening five domestic contests. Likewise, crashing out of the DFP Pokal last month thanks to a stunning 4-3 loss away at little-known Elversberg, Leverkusen could be in for another tough test on Wednesday night. Only continuing to show a string of issues at the back, a home double chance can be found at appealing odds.
