Club Brugge may find it impossible to breach Atletico Madrid defence

Rojiblancos are so solid at home

Diego Simeone's Atletico Madrid are tough to break down
1 of 1

BT Sport Extra, 8pm Wednesday

Atletico Madrid needed just three shots on target as they ground out an opening win in Monaco and Diego Simeone’s functional Rojiblancos should earn another victory over Club Brugge.

Atleti were disappointing as they exited at the group stage in the 2017-18 Champions League but made up for it in style by claiming the Europa League and they tend to go well in European competition.

They, alongside Dortmund, will be fancied to escape this group and claiming six points over Brugge should prove within their compass.

Simeone has kept hold of star players Antoine Griezmann, Diego Godin and Jan Oblak over the summer and added some reinforcements which should make the Madrid men even harder to beat.

They have a sterling defensive record and should prove typically hard to breach.
