Pick: Leipzig -1.25 AH
Odds: 1.96
Stake: 1

Match date: 28/09/2021

Round 2 of the Champions League group stage where RB Leipzig is hosting Club Brugge KV. 

The opening round results from this group:

Leipzig as expected lost away in England from Man City although it must be noted final 6:3 maybe is not showing clear picture since it was tight on three goals each relatively late in the game. 

Club Brugge made big surprise by taking one point in 1:1 home draw against PSG. So well done for them for such result but we must agree PSG is not clicking yet and it's question when they would be start clicking. 

I wouldn't be surprised if Club Brugge remain till the end on that one point. Especially is hard for me to see the Belgian side being able to avoid defeat on any road game in this group. Even in the Belgian Pro League where they are the current leader, Club Brugge had some sudden big failure like that 6:1 loss away at Gent.  

Against German opposition, Club Brugge holds 0-3-7 all time record counting both, away as well home matches.  

For Leipzig this today's game is crucial in my opinion. With victory they are strong candidate to finish Top 2 no matter of huge opening round loss. The German side already was in same situation in previous campaign. Back then they also had two big European names in their group. One was PSG exactly like now while the other one was Man Utd instead of Man City. Leipzig has defeated them both at home as well the third opponent Basaksehir. With 3-0-0 at home and 4-2-0 overall record, Leipzig qualified back then for the knockout stage. I think they could do it again, especially when PSG is not playing as expected. But in aim to qualify, the German side simply must take the job done against Club Brugge in both games.  

The start of the season for Leipzig was rough. They have won only one of the first five matches in Bundesliga but weekend game vs Hertha Berlin was clear sign of improvement. They took the job done with huge 6:0 victory. So they remains trustworthy host with other win also was huge, 4:0 vs Stuttgart. The only home fail was against Bayern Munich if we could call it fail at all when you lose from such a giant. 

Both teams have few unavailable players. But obviously in such situation it's always advantage on the side of the team with much deeper squad. In this case that's clearly Leipzig.  

Angelino is out for host due to suspension. Olmo, Saracchi, Halstenberg and Adams are dealing with injuries. Against Hertha also Gvardiol had to leave the game. 

For guests captain Ruud Vormer and new signing Jose Izquierdo are likely to miss the game. Providence is out too.

My predicted score here is RB Leipzig 2:0 Club Brugge KV. 

LOST Score: 1:2 Profit: -1
