Our prediction for this Champions League match:
Club Brugge and Borussia Dortmund take on each other at Jan Breydelstadion in what is expected to be a very entertaining game. Club Brugge often struggle in the Champions League and they will be looking to put an end to their ten-game winless run in the elite competition when they take on Borussia Dortmund in Tuesday’s football match. The Millionaires, on the other hand, aim to kick off their Champions League campaign in style and we predict that they will go all guns blazing at Club Brugge in their opener. The Bundesliga side have been in a fine form at the start of the season and given Club Brugge’s poor record in the Champions League, we believe that there is a big value in betting on the away team. A man to watch in Lucien Favre’s team will be Marco Reus, who decided not to leave the club in the summer transfer window.

The capacity of Borussia’s home ground is 81,539 and it has to be noted that the stadium was opened in 1974. BVB have the highest average attendance in the world of football.
Borussia Dortmund have won eight Bundesliga trophies, while clinching the German Cup title three times.
However, the club’s biggest success came in 1997 when they outplayed Juventus in the Champions League final.

Borussia’s biggest rivals are Schalke 04 and the two teams square off against each other in the Revierderby.
