Match Preview

Matchday one heralded Real Madrid’s third three-goal defeat in four UEFA Champions League (UCL) matches, with Real losing the first half of each reverse by a 2-0 scoreline. However, Real have won all 16 of their UCL group stage home openers under the current format (since 2003/04), doing so by a single-goal margin just once since the 2013/14 campaign.
In addition to that, five of Real’s last six UCL group stage home openers have seen them win both halves, with the 13-time winners keeping a clean sheet in three of their last four victories within that group.
Club Brugge opened their own UCL campaign with a 0-0 draw, making it their third group game in a row to produce that exact scoreline. Overall, four of their last five UCL group stage games have ended level and produced under 2.5 goals.
However, Real will underestimate Brugge at their peril, with the ‘Blauw-Zwart’ going unbeaten in their last three away UCL matches played against a team with a higher UEFA coefficient (W1, D2). Across those three games, Brugge have averaged 2.33 goals per-match.
Players to watch: After netting a first-half opener in Real’s last home win, Vinícius Júnior has his first goal of the campaign.
Brugge’s Hans Vanaken netted a brace inside the opening 30 minutes of his club’s last group stage away win against a team with a higher coefficient.
Stat attack: Domestically strong, Real’s last four La Liga home wins have seen them net the decisive goal ten minutes either side of the 45-minute mark.
All of Real’s UCL home matches in the group stage of 2018/19 produced exactly three match goals.
Including qualifiers, none of Brugge’s last eight UCL defeats have seen them lose both halves.
