Atletico Madrid take on the visitors Brugge in the round 4 match of UEFA Champions League group stage. The match will be played on Wednesday, October 12th at Metropolitano Stadium (Madrid).
Atlético Madrid are not consistent enough this season. Los Colcheneros after winning the LaLiga in the draw before last, are experiencing permanent problems - even if there is no need to talk about a full-fledged decline. This is especially true in the Champions League. In the last draw, they still managed to win 2nd place in the group and play (by the way, with dignity) in the playoffs. Now Diego Simeone's wards have 1 victory in the 1st round, and that is extremely strained: 2-1 at home with Porto due to Griezmann's goal in the 11th (eleventh!) added minute. After that, there were 2 away matches, and both were unsuccessful. Both Bayer in Leverkusen and Brugge won 0-2. However, “El Cholo” assures that the main thing is that his wards are playing well.

Brugge has become one of the main sensations of this Champions League season. The Black and Blues have played in the tournament before, but, showing good football, still did not achieve anything more than 3rd place. And now, by the way, playing inconsistently in their native Jupiler-League, Hofkens' wards showed one hundred percent statistics - by the way, 9 points after 3 rounds became a national record for Belgium in the Champions League! At first, Silla's single goal "in the locker room" brought victory over Bayer. Then it turned out to unexpectedly defeat Porto on his field. And last Tuesday the hero was Judgla, who came from Barcelona: the attacker scored a goal and an assist. In fact, even one point in the 2nd round of the European Cup group round should be enough for the final success of the nominal underdog in the form of reaching the playoffs.
In 1978, as part of the European Cup, the clubs exchanged victories at home - Brugge was slightly better, scoring 1 goal more. Only 40 years later, Atletico took revenge, gaining 4 points out of 6 possible. And now it's time for the Belgians. Atlético will be the pair's favorite at home. But Brugge is really good, so it's worth looking at the "+1.5 goals" handicap.
Prediction for the match: Brugge to win with +1.5 handicap.
