In the first leg in the qualifications for the UEFA Europa League, Club Brugge will host Brondby.
Club Brugge finished at the second position in Jupiler League last season in the regular part, while later in play-off they finished at the 3rd position, one point less than Standard. Club Brugge have started this season with the win in the first round beating Waasland-Beveren away 0-2. Before their national championship has started, they played 8 preparing matches and didn’t lose (4-4-0).
In home team Vadis Odjidja (0/0 m), Blondel (0/0 m), the second goalkeeper Kujovic (0/0 gk) and De Sutter (0/0 f) are all out.
Brondby is not on the same level as they used to be. They finished the last season at the 4th position in Danish Superliga and this is the first time they participate in Europe since 2009. In the first match in Superliga they lost against Midtjylland , while in the 2nd round they beat Silkeborg at home 2-0.
Szymanowski (1/0 m), Hjulsager (0/0 m) and an experienced striker Johan Elmander (0/0 f) are all out.
Club Brugge is a big favorite to qualify in the next round, they are playing in Europe for years and I believe they could finish the job in the first match upfront their supporters.
