A win in this game would put Borussia Dortmund in pole position to qualify from the group, with Lazio playing FC Zenit in the other game in the group on Tuesday.

Borussia Dortmund were excellent in the second half against Hertha Berlin in their Bundesliga match on Saturday night, after going into the break 1-0 down. Erling Braut Haaland scored four goals as they eventually won the game 5-2.

Club Brugge were mostly laboured in the first half of their Belgian Pro League match against KV Kortrijk on Saturday night. A 60th-minute goal from Noa Lang gave Philippe Clement's side all three points from that game.

Club Brugge have so far earned a draw against Lazio after beating FC Zenit, before they lost to Borussia Dortmund in the reverse fixture at the Jan Breydel Stadium three weeks ago.
