Club Brugge welcome Dynamo Kyiv to the Jan Breydel Stadium in the second leg of their UEFA Europa League round of 32 tie on Thursday.

The first leg at the NSC Olimpiyskiy Stadium last week ended in a 1-1 draw. Brugge will be pleased that they managed an away goal and stalemate in Ukraine.

Dynamo are the leaders in the Ukrainian Premier League, while the hosts also have a 15-point lead in the Belgian First Division.
