Champions League Free Pick: Club Brugge vs. AS Monaco

Monaco is a mere shadow of the team they were the last couple of seasons that qualified them for the Champions League. They have just one win on the year, their opening Ligue 1 game back on August 11. Since then, they have played in 14 matches with five draws and nine losses including a winless home record and 0-3-4 (W-D-L) on the year.

Event: (224201) Club Brugge at (224202) AS Monaco
Date/Time: November 6, 2018 12PM EST
Play: Club Brugge +0.25 (-102)

UEFA Champions League

Monaco did earn a 1-1 draw at Club Brugge in the reverse fixture a couple weeks ago, but Club Brugge was the better team in that game and should have won with a goal called back for offsides and seven scoring chances compared to just two for Monaco. Monaco sits at #19 of 20 in France’s Ligue 1 with a 1-4-7 record and a 12:18 goal differential.

Club Brugge is #2 (of 16) in Belgium’s Jupiler League this year with a 9-4-1 record and strong 36:14 goal differential. They come in off a 1-1 draw at league-leading Genk on Saturday and are on a five game unbeaten streak. Neither of these teams are going to make it out of this group as Atletico Madrid and Dortmund are just far superior teams, but I think Club Brugge is the third best team in this group and I just don’t see them losing to Monaco here.

TAKE CLUB BRUGGE +0.25 (this is a split wager between +0 and +0.5)

Now, Borro uses statistical analysis as well as current trends to successfully find value on soccer matches across the globe.Unlike professional sports in the United States, the best players in the world reside in Europe’s big five leagues including the Premier League, La Liga, Ligue 1, Bundesliga and Serie A,as well as the most prestigious tournament of them all The Champions League. Here is where you will find Borro focusing his attention during the fall to spring season.Of course, you can’t forget the fast-growing MLS which finishes the year-round soccer schedule through the summer months in North America.
