Manchester City will be on upset alert on Tuesday when it plays its third UEFA Champions League group stage match against Club Brugge. The Belgian side already raised eyebrows with a draw against PSG early on, and the battle for advancement out of the group is very much a three-team race. Man City hasn't had overly-inspiring results beyond its success against lower English Premier League sides, but it will be hungry for its second Group A win. You can catch the match live on Paramount+.
Kick-off for Brugge vs. Man City is set for 12:45 p.m. ET from Jan Breydelstadion in Bruges, Belgium. Man City is the -360 favorite (risk $360 to win $100) on the 90-minute money line in the latest Club Brugge vs. Manchester City odds at Caesars Sportsbook. Brugge is a +1000 underdog, a draw returns +470, and the over-under for total goals scored is set at 3.5. Tuesday's match will be streamed live on Paramount+ with their must-have Premium plan.

UEFA Champions League picks for Manchester City vs. Club Brugge
Before you tune in to Tuesday's match, you need to see the Manchester City vs. Club Brugge picks from SportsLine's proprietary European soccer model. Created by two Norwegians -- professional poker player and sports bettor Jonas Gjelstad, and economics and engineering expert Marius Norheim -- the model analyzes worldwide betting data and exploits market inefficiencies, helping its followers cash in. Since coming to SportsLine last year, the algorithm is up over $8,500.
For Manchester City vs. Club Brugge, the model is leaning under 3.5 goals. Offense has been a concern for Man City, even after a six-goal showing in its first group match against RB Leipzig. The Sky Blues followed that up with a scoreless effort against PSG and are somewhat fortunate to not be lagging further behind on goal differential. Defender Aymeric Laporte had a particularly poor match against PSG, and manager Pep Guardiola has had trouble shoring up the play on his back line.
Laporte also took a yellow card and was subbed off in City's last match against Burnley, which the club still managed to win, 2-0. Hans Vanaken has been the most effective player in attack for Brugge in 2021, but Charles De Ketelaere has yet to score his first UCL goal. Until he gets things going, Brugge's offensive potential remains minimal.
With an added focus on defense, the overall scoring potential in the match is limited, and that's why the model predicts it will finish under the 3.5-goal total.
