Premier League champions Leicester City make their Champions League debut as they travel to Belgium to face Belgian champions Club Brugge.

Club Brugge have very little recent Champions League group experience and are underdogs in this clash at odds of  to win this clash. The Belgian side went out of the competition at the play-off stage against Manchester United last season.

Brugge did make it to the Europa League last-eight in 2015, but their biggest achievement in the European Cup remains in 1978, when Liverpool defeated them in the final of the competition.

Their recent record in the Champions League, including the qualifying round, is not great as they suffered four defeats in their last five outings in Europe’s biggest competition. Those last five outings have also seen over 2.5 goals scored in each of them. They have also won just once in their last eight Champions League outings.

Leicester are English champions and favourites to win this clash at odds of .

The Foxes are heading into unknown territory by playing in the Champions League, as they have only ever featured in three previous European campaigns, making just eight appearances in all, with the previous appearances coming in the UEFA Cup and Cup Winners Cup.

Leicester of course surprised everybody by winning the Premier League and claiming their place in the group stages of this competition. The Foxes have made an unconvincing start to their top-flight campaign, but players like Jamie Vardy and Riyad Mahrez will be looking to impress in Europe’s elite competition after taking the English top-flight by storm last season.

The Foxes veteran Italian boss Claudio Ranieri has a wealth of experience having managed in the competition with clubs from Italy and England, so he has a very good knowledge of what is needed to win in the competition.
