Club Brugge vs Benfica Kick-Off Time
NAME: Borussia Dortmund – Chelsea
DATE: 15 Feb 2023
TIME: 20:00 UTC
VENUE: Signal Iduna Park, Dortmund, Germany
Club Brugge welcome Benfica to the Jan Breydel Stadium for the first leg of their Champions League last-16 tie on Wednesday.
While Scott Parker’s side have failed to win each of their last seven home games across all competitions, Roger Schmidt’s men are seeking to avoid back-to-back away matches without a win for the first time since December.
After winning their first three group games, the Belgian giants failed to win their final three fixtures but they still managed to claim a top-two spot to advance with group winners Porto, keeping a tournament-high five clean sheets in the process.
Despite leading the club into the last 16, head coach Carl Hoefkens was relieved of his duties on December 28 after just six months in charge following a poor domestic run of form, with Scott Parker hired as his successor.
Parker is yet to spark a revival in the Brugge hotseat, though, drawing five of his first seven Belgian Pro League matches in charge including last weekend’s 1-1 draw at home against Union SG, and hopes of defending their top-flight title are now all but over as they sit 20 points behind leaders Genk.
Brugge, who have already been eliminated from the Belgian Cup, can now focus fully on their first-ever meeting with Benfica on Wednesday as they bid to continue their fairytale journey in the Champions League.
