Club Brugge have ‘a bit of credit’ going into the Besiktas game says Preud’homme [divider]
Club Brugge manager Preud’homme underlined that his side only have a slight advantage going into the Europa League Last 16 second-leg tie against Beşiktaş.
“We wouldn’t say we have an advantage: a bit of credit because of the first-leg victory against Beşiktaş’s supporters and the atmosphere,” Preud’homme told the official UEFA website.
The Belgium based side won the first-leg 2-1 at home and would progress to the quarter-final with a draw.
Club Brugge would not even have to beat Beşiktaş to book a place in the next round.
The Black Eagles must beat Club Brugge 1-0 to qualify or 2-1 to force extra time, any other one goal margin victory would see the Belgium side qualify on away goals.
Beşiktaş would guarantee a place in the next round by a two goal margin of victory.
The Turkish giants will be playing in front of a full capacity Atatürk Olympic stadium.
