Club Brugge look very decent at home. In the first round, for example, they drew with PSG, and in general, in the last 11 matches at Jan Breidel, they lost only to Manchester City. The hosts will be satisfied with a draw here and won't push for maximum points. Leipzig, on the other hand, often struggle away, and we doubt they will be able to get a win here.
Our second bet - a draw
