Match Preview

Club Brugge and one-time Champions League (CL) finalists, AS Monaco, face off this Wednesday at the Jan Breydel Stadion for their third game in Group A of the 2018/19 CL. Both sides are yet to claim their first point in the CL group stage this season.
The home side lost their first two fixtures in the competition, extending their winless run in the CL to twelve games (D1, L11). Encouragingly, Ivan Leko’s side sit second in the Belgian Pro League (PL), losing only one of their first eleven games (W8, D2, L1) and are still unbeaten at home (W5, D1), scoring at least two goals in each win.
As for their visitors, the ‘Monegasque’ are still pointless in the competition, and they have failed to win any of their last ten fixtures in the CL (D2, L8), which represents the club’s worst run in the post-1992 expansion era of the CL. Moreover, Thierry Henry’s men are on a dreadful run of nine-straight games without a win in Ligue 1 in France (D3, L5) – Monaco’s worst run since January-March 2008!
Both sides last met in the 1988/89 CL round-of-16, with Monaco winning the first-leg 6-1 at home before then losing the reverse fixture 1-0 away to Brugge.
Players to watch: Club Brugge winger Arnaut Groeneveld has four goals and three assists in the PL, he also scored his team’s single goal in the CL. Meanwhile, Monaco’s Colombian striker Radamel Falcao scored half of his team’s six goals in the CL last season.
Stat attack: The hosts have claimed only one clean sheet in their last eleven home CL fixtures (W2, D2, L7).
Monaco have won only one of their last nine trips in the CL (W1, D3, L5).
Monaco have a perfectly balance record of: W1, D1, L1, from their three competitive games played on Belgian soil (GF 2, GA 2).
