Our Club Brugge vs Fiorentina prediction suggests the Belgians are very much alive in this tie. The clubs met for the first ever time last week with Fiorentina 3-2 winners at the Stadio Artemio Franchi.

Although Brugge were hampered by a red card for 23 year old Raphael Onyedika, the fact remains that they’ve now won just five of their 21 meetings against Italian opponents in UEFA competitions.

Club Brugge Preview: Onyedika serves ban

The hosts will attempt to come back without midfielder Raphael Onyedika, who serves a suspension following his first-leg dismissal. Bjorn Meijer is an injury doubt after picking up a knock at the weekend.

Predicted Lineup: Jackers, Meijer, Mechele, Spileers, Sabbe, Odoi, Veltesen, Skov Olsen, Vanaken, Jutgla, Thiago

Fiorentina Preview: First leg hero ruled out

Riccardo Sottil is the big absentee for the Italians. The winger scored the opening goal last week but has since sustained a fractured collarbone, effectively ending his season early.

Player to watch – Igor Thiago

The big dangerman for Club Brugge may well be striker Igor Thiago. The 22 year old scored in the first leg and has registered 18 goals in 27 appearances in the Belgian Pro League this season.

Thiago scoring freely in Europe

In the Conference League, Thiago averages a goal every 134 minutes this season. Only three players can better his tally of five goals in the competition, with Ayoub El Kaabi of Olympiacos the only one of those still active in this season's UECL.
