Storylines

Club Brugge: The Belgium side pulled off dramatic win against Zenit to open their group stage. The team opened the scoring in the 63rd minute, but gave away an equalizer with American keeper Ethan Horvath in the line of fire on an own goal. The club was able to put the match away in stoppage time with a goal from Charles De Ketelaere. The team will need a stronger showing in front of net if they are to prove they're a competitor, not just a spoiler, in the tournament.

Lazio: This Serie A side are coming of a win against Dortmund where they made quick work of the Bundesliga side winning, 3-0. Ciro Immobile opened the scoring early in the 6th minute, an own goal from Dortmund aided the lead in the 23rd minute and Jean-Daniel Akpa Akpro iced the game in the 76th minute. Current COVID-19 results has left the roster with only 16 available players, among those missing is Immobile. A heavily altered roster will have to ensure a result of some sort against their second place counterpart.

Prediction

Lazio are shorthanded, so this one becomes Club Brugge's match to lose. Pick: Brugge 2, Lazio 0
