As part of the 5th round of the group stage of the Champions League, Bruges will host guests from Leipzig at its Jan Breidel stadium.
The Belgians were considered a clear outsider of Group A. But the dedication and zeal of the Bruges players bore fruit, and after 4 rounds, the team takes a confident 3rd place, having 4 points in the asset. In the second round, the black and blue snatched victory from the same Leipzig away, responding twice to a quickly conceded goal.
Now there are many young footballers in Bruges, but the public’s attention is riveted on the prodigy de Ketelare. The player born in 2001 is the team’s top scorer, and the top clubs in Europe are already interested in him.
“De Ketelare’s universalism is his exceptional advantage. He is a full-fledged striker with a good mix of physical and technical talent. I think that there will soon be no end to the applicants for its purchase, ”said the legendary striker“ Bruges ”Gert Verheijen.
By the way, de Ketelare made his debut for the Belgian national team in the last pause for the national teams
The German team doesn’t look very good this season. Fifth place in the regular season and last place in the Champions League group. Obviously, this was due to the departure of head coach Nagelsmann to Bayern. With a young specialist, the team competed in the mighty Bavaria and Dortmund Borussia for the championship, and now it risks not getting into the Champions League zone.
The team, after a draw with PSG in the last round, lost the opportunity to get into the Champions League playoffs. The Bulls are under tremendous pressure and the victory in the upcoming match is the only outcome that the German team can arrange.
In recent matches, striker Christopher Nkunku, 24, has had a huge impact on the game. The Frenchman mastered the position of a forward and became the team’s top scorer. He has 5 goals and 3 assists in the German championship.
Christopher was recently awarded the Bundesliga Player of the Month award.
Although the match is not central, even in one’s own group, it will be possible to watch it live on the Match Football channel. A text broadcast of the event will be available on the Sports.ru website.
