    I saw that game and was impressed by club Brugge.They play very fluid passing game with so much flair.They are by distance the best club in Belgium with that great performance.The confidence they displayed away from home against a top Ukrainian side was phenomenal.
    Brugge may qualify for the knockout stages of the champions league i won’t be surprised if that happens and the red card to Percy Tau was harsh but the bench looks to be better than the starters to my amazement.
    The two Nigerians apparently,was outshone by their subs to the point I wondered why the coach picked them as starters.They have to be consistent to keep their place in that entertaining team.
