09:27, 30 Sep 2018

Atletico hosts Club Brugge at the Wanda Metropolitano. This Champions League Group A clash will be on Wednesday 3rd October.

Atletico sits at the top of Group A ahead of Dortmund on goal advantage. They beat Monaco 2-1 in their group opener. They are 3rd in the Bundesliga with eleven points from six matches. They have not lost a match at home in the league this season. Their last home clash ended in a 3-0 demolition of Huesca. Antoine Griezmann has been scoring key goals for Atletico Madrid and he together with Diego Costa will out for blood here.

Club Brugge is having a good run in the Belgian Pro League. They however failed to replicate their league form as they went down 1-0 to Borussia in their Champions league opener. They are a good team upfront and they score goals regardless of where they play. Their last away match ended 5-2 in their favor against Zulte Waregem. They are good defensively but will need to work extra hard so as to keep the likes of Griezmann and Costa tamed.
