THE TEAM NEWS

CLUB BRUGGE

  • Club Brugge are in pole position to seal third spot in Group A but will want to confirm their own fate with a victory in their final game.
  • Brugge earned a valiant point at the Bernabeu when the two teams last met and the Belgian side will be buoyed by that effort.

Predicted line-up (4-3-3): Mignolet; Balanta, Mechele, Deli, Sobol; Rits, Vormer, Vanaken; Dennis, Okereke, Schrijvers

Unavailable: Diatta (Suspended), Clinton Mata (Suspended), Mitrovic (Injured)

Doubtful:

REAL MADRID

  • Real Madrid have sealed second place in Group A and are on a nine-match unbeaten run in all competitions but that could come under threat.
  • With qualification into the last 16 already secure, Madrid may opt to send a weakened side to Belgium as they focus on La Liga.
  • The Spaniards are already struggling with injuries and will not want to risk further knocks in what is a meaningless contest to them.

Predicted line-up (4-3-3): Courtois; Odriozola, Eder Militao, Varane, Mendy; Modric, Valverde, Casemiro; Isco, Jovic, Rodrygo

Unavailable: Marco Asensio (Injured), James Rodriguez (Injured), Lucas Vazquez (Injured), Hazard (Injured), Nacho (Injured), M. Diaz (Out of favour), Marcelo (Injured), Kroos (Rested), Sergio Ramos (Rested)

Doubtful: Bale (Injured)

THE PREDICTION

Club Brugge will be confident of progressing to the Europa League as they sit in third place in Group A but a win here over Real Madrid would confirm their spot. The visitors look set to send an under-strength side to Belgium and that should make this a very open game with plenty of goals.
