Tips and Prediction
Atletico would have believed they had a good chance of winning Group B when the draw was announced, but there is no denying that Diego Simeone’s team has struggled so far.
The Red and Whites defeated Porto to start the 2022–23 season on September 7. However, they have dropped their last two matches, defeats to Bayer Leverkusen and Club Brugge on the road, leaving them in last place in Group B with just three points to show for their efforts.
Atletico Madrid’s situation is not exactly dire because they are tied for second place with Porto in terms of points, but a poor performance on Wednesday would put them in a precarious position and their exclusion from the competition’s knockout stages would be shocking given their track record.
Since the 2017–18 season, the Madrid giants have never failed to advance past the group stage, making it three times as far as the round of 16 and four times as far as the quarterfinals.
Angel Correa scored twice for the hosts, who sit fourth in the standings with 16 points, six points behind the league-leading Barcelona after eight games, as they defeated Girona in a morale-boosting La Liga victory on Saturday.
Simeone’s team will enter this match on the strength of that victory. In the Champions League this season, Club Brugge has not made a mistake. They started their 2022-23 campaign with a win over Bayer Leverkusen and then destroyed Porto in Portugal the following week.
With goals from Kamal Sowah and Ferran Jutgla to defeat Atletico last week, the Belgian team improved to nine points in Group B, six points ahead of Porto in second place.
Club Brugge has been a regular at this stage of the European Cup in recent years, but they haven’t been able to advance to the knockout round.
Even a loss on Wednesday would put Hoefkens’ team in a strong position going into their final two matches against Porto and Bayer Leverkusen, which are scheduled for October 26 and November 1, respectively. Hoefkens’ team will be aware that they are not quite there in terms of advancement.
With 22 points from 11 games, Blauw-Zwart actually enters this game off of a home league loss to Westerlo on Saturday. As a result, they are currently in third place in the standings, eight points behind their closest competitors Antwerp.
Club Brugge has excelled in the competition this year, so a victory on Wednesday night would be a remarkable accomplishment.
Although Atletico Madrid has had some issues this year, it is difficult to bet against them at home, so we are picking Simeone’s team to win by a slim margin.
