Bel­gian ti­tle­hold­ers FC Brugge, who are com­pet­ing in the UEFA Cham­pi­ons League group stage for the first time since 2005/06, have had a sim­i­larly poor start to this cam­paign as Leicester. A 1-0 de­feat at the week­end was their third of the sea­son. Boss Michel Preud’homme said he is “wor­ried” but says his play­ers “can do it, we know that”.

Brugge strug­gled in the Europa League last sea­son, los­ing at home to Napoli and FC Midtjyl­land as they fin­ished third in their group.

Brugge lost to Manch­ester United in last sea­son’s Cham­pi­ons League play-offs.

Their over­all home record against English sides is W6 D2 L2.
