Real Madrid: Defensive issues seem to have been fixed with three straight cleansheets. After the loss to PSG, real was reeling at the back but has done well to recover, limit mistakes and play quickly. Against the Belgian side, Real shouldn't have much trouble and will likely be able to overpower a team that lights up the back of the net in domestic play.
Club Brugge: This team has gone 17 matches without a defeat, including Champions League, domestic league and preseason. That fantastic run of form will give them plenty of confidence, but this is UCL away at the Santiago Bernabeu. A draw would feel like a victory for them. If they can get through the first half an hour without conceding, expect an ugly match the rest of the way.
Karim Benzema scores, and Eden Hazard gets his first goal for the club in a comfortable victory.
Pick: Real Madrid 3, Club Brugge 0
