Club Brugge vs Atletico Madrid predictions and betting tips for the Champions League last group stage fixture today. See our correct score and anytime goalscorer predictions for the match at the Jan Breydelstadion (Brugge).
Atletico Madrid know they need a win to guarantee top spot in Champions League Group A, they will also win the group if Dortmund fail to beat Monaco in the other match. Both sides have already qualified for the last 16. Club Brugge have already secured their place in the Europa League so it remains to be seen if manager Ivan Leko takes this opportunity to rest some of his first team players.
Club Brugge sit third in their domestic league and also third in this Champions League group. They have nothing to play for here and so Atletico Madrid should get the three points they need to secure top spot in the group. Brugge are a good side at home but they should be no match for Ateltico tonight. The hosts could only manage a draw against Monaco and they lost 1-0 when Borussia Dortmund were the visitors. The reverse of this fixture ended in a 3-1 win for Diego Simeone’s men and we’re predicting a similar outcome for tonight’s Club Brugge vs Atletico Madrid predictions.
What are the best odds for Atletico Madrid to win and BTTS vs Club Brugge? 3/1 with Betfred.
The obvious choice in this market if Frenchman Antoine Griezmann, who has already scored four goals in this season’s Champions League. The World Cup winner is always the star man for this Atletico side but his odds are not appealing enough at 11/10. There could be a few goals in this game given that Club Brugge have nothing to play for so instead we’re hunting for a bit of value and betting on Koke to get on the schresheet. The Spainish midfielder scored in the 2-0 win over Monaco in Atleti’s last Champions League fixture and also found the net in the reverse fixture earlier this season. Diego Costa is injured so he can’t be considered but Angel Correra is another option here – he already has a few goals this season including one in this competition.
What are the best odds for Koke to score vs Club Brugge tonight? 9/2 with bet365.
We’re already going for an away win in our Champions League tips for this match so we can look to back that up with a correct score bet to round off our betting tips. There is the possibility that Brugge manager Ivan Leko will make changes here and Atleti know a win will secure top spot and hopefully an easier draw in the last 16. For that reason’ we’re expecting a comfortable Atletico victory tonight and the 3-1 scoreline looks like as good a bet as any. This backs up our earlier BTTS and win prediction for the match.
What are the best odds for Atletico Madrid to win 3-1 tonight? 15/1 with Bet Victor.
The visitors are strong favourites to win this match, the best odds you will find are 4/6 at Betfred. The draw is 29/10 with bet365 and the best odds for the hosts to cause an upset are 11/2 with the same firm. Jelle Vossen and Arnaut Groeneveld are both missing for the home side tonight but more changes could be made with the likes of Brazilian Wesley set to be rested and Hans Vanaken could also drop down to the bench.
For Atletico Madrid they know what they need to do – Borussia Dortmund are likely to beat Monaco in the other match so they cannot afford to take any chances here. Simeone will demand the team get the three points and our Champions League predictions suggest they’ll do exactly that. Stefam Savic is suspended for the match and Diego Costa misses out through injury. Filipe Luis is back in training but won’t be risked tonight.
