Club Brugge have had a Champions League campaign to remember and the Belgians know that a win over RB Leipzig in their fourth game of the group stages keeps the dream of a place in the last 16 alive.
For Leipzig, it has been a campaign to forget. The Germans are struggling in the Bundesliga and have been abysmal in the Champions League. Jesse Marsch’s men have already been eliminated from the competition but a win will keep their slim hopes of a place in the Europa League alive.
Brugge surprised many fans by taking four points from their first two games against Leipzig and Paris Saint-Germain. However, heavy defeats at the hands of Manchester City mean that they might not make it through to the next round of the competition.
But you cannot rule out Philippe Clement’s men who need a win over Leipzig to keep the dream alive.
Leipzig on the other hand, are playing for pride and should feel confident about getting the right result following a 2-2 draw with PSG in their previous Champions League outing.

Leipzig will be without the services of star midfielder Dominik Szoboszlai who could not finish the league game against Hoffenheim due to an ankle issue.
