Last five H2Hs: Club Brugge with a small advantage

In official matches, Club Brugge and PAOK have only met twice before the last week's duel which Club Brugge have won. That was in the group stages of the 2009/10 Europa League season, when both of their duels ended 1-1.

PAOK preview: Battling on multiple fronts

PAOK have been doing great this season and in the last 10 games, they've notched six wins. They are currently third in the Greek league, but they're only two points behind AEK and one behind Panathinaikos, with a match in hand. On top of that, PAOK are hoping to reach a semi-final of a European competition for the first time in the team's history.

When it comes to team news, William Troost-Ekong, Thomas Murg, and Ivan Nasberg are out with injuries.

Club Brugge preview: On a good run and looking for more

With three wins in a row in all competitions, Club Brugge have been in good form recently. Furthermore, after their win over Antwerp in the Jupiler League last weekend, they are now just two point behind Union St Gilloise and five behind Anderlecht in an exciting title race.

Meanwhile, Brandon Mechele, Maxim De Cuyper, and Igor Thiago are all out of this match through suspensions, while Simon Mignolet, Denis Odoi, Casper Nielsen, and Andreas Skov Olsen are out with injuries.

Predicted Lineup: Jackers – Sabbe, Ordonez, Spileers, Meijer – Vetlesen, Onyedika, Vanaken – Zinckernagel, Jutgla, Skoras

Player to watch: Ferran Jutgla

While the Spanish forward has yet to score in Europe this season, he's done well in the Jupiler League, where he has seven goals in just 13 starts for Club Brugge.

Will Jutgla score first?

Though the sample size isn't that large, four of Jutgla's seven goals in the league this season have been the first goal in those respective matches. Can he do the same against PAOK on Thursday?
