Match background Only this chapter

Having come close to a famous win at Real Madrid on Matchday 2, Club Brugge have another chance to get one over the 13-time European champions when the teams meet in Belgium on the final day of Group A, with victory certain to prolong the Belgian side's European season.

• Madrid will finish second in Group A behind Paris Saint-Germain, while Club Brugge currently occupy third place on three points, one ahead of Galatasaray, against whom they snatched a last-gasp draw on Matchday 6. Club Brugge will finish third if they beat Madrid, or if Galatasaray fail to win in Paris.

• Madrid have eight points, and had to come from 2-0 down to draw at home to Club Brugge in the second round of matches, Sergio Ramos (55) and Casemiro (85) salvaging a point after Emmanuel Bonaventure's first-half double had stunned the Santiago Bernabéu.

Highlights: Real Madrid 2-2 Club Brugge

Previous meetings
• Club Brugge came out on top in the sides' only contests before this season, in the 1976/77 European Champion Clubs' Cup second round. After a goalless first leg in Spain, a match that was played in Malaga, the Belgian side went through thanks to a 2-0 home success.

Form guide
Club Brugge
• After being held 0-0 at home by Galatasaray on Matchday 1, their third successive goalless draw in the UEFA Champions League proper, Club Brugge ended that sequence with the 2-2 draw in Madrid. Their six-match unbeaten run in the group stage was emphatically ended by a 5-0 loss against Paris in Bruges on Matchday 3 – the club's heaviest at home in UEFA competition.

• Club Brugge then lost 1-0 in Paris, and looked set for a third successive Group A defeat when they trailed 1-0 at Galatasaray going into the final stages, but a goal two minutes into added time from Krépin Diatta snatched a draw, the visitors holding on despite losing Diatta and Clinton Mata to second yellow cards in the aftermath of the goal.

Highlights: Galatasaray 1-1 Club Brugge

• Club Brugge have therefore failed to score in three of their five Group A games, and five of their last seven matches in the UEFA Champions League proper.

• Last season the Blauw-Zwart finished third behind Borussia Dortmund and Atlético Madrid on six points, five ahead of Monaco. Having lost their first two fixtures, the Belgian club were unbeaten in their last four – the sole victory a 4-0 win at Monaco that represented their biggest away success in the competition. Club Brugge then moved into the UEFA Europa League, losing to Salzburg in the round of 32 (2-1 h, 0-4 a).

• Despite the win at Monaco – which ended a 13-year, 11-game run without a victory (D2 L9) – Club Brugge have won only three of their last 23 fixtures in the UEFA Champions League proper (D7 L13).

• This season Club Brugge got the better of Dynamo Kyiv in the third qualifying round (1-0 h, 3-3 a) before a play-off victory against Austrian side LASK (1-0 a, 2-1 h). Their results on Matchdays 1 and 2 made it ten UEFA Champions League games without defeat (W4 D6), qualifying included, before the home loss to Paris.

Highlights: Club Brugge 0-5 Paris

• The 2-1 success against Salzburg last February ended the club's run of nine home European games without a win (D4 L5), since a 1-0 UEFA Europa League group stage defeat of Legia Warszawa in November 2015. They have since won two of their last four European matches in Bruges (D1 L1), the defeat by Paris ending a six-match unbeaten home run.

• Last season's 0-0 draw against Atlético made Club Brugge's home record against Spanish visitors W5 D3 L4; they have won only one of the last eight (D3 L4), a 1-0 defeat of Valencia in the 2009/10 UEFA Europa League round of 32 first leg (1-3 aggregate). That is also their last victory against a Spanish club, home or away; their record since is D2 L4.

• Second in Belgium behind Genk in 2018/19, this is Club Brugge's seventh UEFA Champions League group campaign, and their third in four years. They have never progressed to the knockout rounds.

• Runners-up to Liverpool in 1978, Club Brugge remain the only team from Belgium to have reached a European Cup final.

Highlights: Real Madrid 2-2 Paris

Real Madrid
• Having been beaten 3-0 in Paris in their opening fixture before drawing with Club Brugge, Madrid then won 1-0 away to Galatasaray and 6-0 at home against the Turkish club, their biggest home win in the UEFA Champions League since December 2015. They let slip a two-goal lead in the final ten minutes to draw 2-2 at home to Paris in their most recent fixture, confirming themselves in second place behind the French club.

• The Spanish giants have lost three of their last eight UEFA Champions League matches – conceding three or more goals in each of those defeats, and 15 in that eight-game sequence.

• Last season Madrid finished first in their section ahead of Roma, Viktoria Plzeň and CSKA Moskva, picking up 12 points from their six matches. A team then coached by Santiago Solari won 2-1 at Ajax in the round of 16 first leg, but bowed out 5-3 on aggregate after a 4-1 home defeat.

• Last season was the first since 2009/10 in which Madrid had failed to reach the semi-finals or better. This is the 13-time champions' 50th European Cup campaign, more than any other side.

Highlights: Real Madrid 6-0 Galatasaray

• This is the third time in four seasons Madrid have finished second in their group.

• Madrid won three of their four European away matches last season and have triumphed in 15 of their last 24, losing just five.

• Rodrygo's hat-trick against Galatasaray on Matchday 4 was the 12th scored by a Real Madrid player in the competition, one fewer than record holders Barcelona. He is only the fifth Madrid player to achieve the feat – after Raúl González, Ronaldo, Cristiano Ronaldo (7) and Karim Benzema (2) – and, at 18 years 301 days, the second-youngest UEFA Champions League hat-trick scorer after Raúl, who was aged 18 years 113 days when he scored his solitary treble against Ferencváros in 1995/96.

• This is Madrid's first trip to Belgium since a 1-1 draw at Genk in the 2002/03 UEFA Champions League first group stage. A 2-0 win at Anderlecht in October 2001 is their only away win against a Belgian side in their last eight games (D1 L6), although they are unbeaten in five matches (W3 D2) against Belgian clubs, home and away.

• Third in Spain in 2018/19, this is Madrid's 24th UEFA Champions League campaign – a joint record along with Barcelona. They have qualified for the knockout rounds in all of their 24 seasons, also a competition best.

Head coach Only this chapter

Philippe Clement

Date of birth: 22 March 1974
Nationality: Belgian
Playing career: Germinal Beerschot (twice), Genk, Coventry, Club Brugge
Coaching career: Club Brugge (caretaker, assistant), Waasland-Beveren, Genk, Club Brugge

• A utility player who could operate in midfield or at full-back, Clement came through the ranks at Beerschot but was soon snapped up by Genk, helping them win the Belgian Cup and finish runners-up in the league in 1997/98. After an injury-plagued year in England with Coventry, returned to Belgium in 1999, signing for Club Brugge.

• Swiftly became a key figure at the Jan Breydelstadion, where he formed a defensive shield in front of the back line. Clement lifted the Belgian Cup again in 2002 and 2004 and the Belgian First Division title in 2002/03 and 2004/05.

• Added a further Belgian Cup success in 2007 before bringing down the curtain on his playing days with two seasons back at Beerschot.

• Clement made his Belgium debut against Norway in March 1998 and played two games in the FIFA World Cup finals later that year; a non-playing squad member at UEFA EURO 2000, he won 38 caps in a nine-year international career.

• After retiring as a player in 2011, he returned to Club Brugge as a scout, working as assistant coach between 2012 and 2017 and having two spells in caretaker charge of the first team. Struck out on his own at Waasland-Beveren in May 2017, making such a positive early impression that he was appointed by Genk that December; led the club to the league title in 2018/19 before leaving for Club Brugge that summer and promptly overseeing the club's immediate return to the UEFA Champions League group stage in August 2019.


Zinédine Zidane

Date of birth: 23 June 1972
Nationality: French
Playing career: Cannes, Bordeaux, Juventus, Real Madrid
Coaching career: Real Madrid (twice)

• Born in Marseille to Algerian immigrant parents, Zidane took his first steps towards footballing superstardom at Cannes, transferring to Bordeaux in 1992. Blossomed into a French international, scoring twice on his debut against the Czech Republic in August 1994. Left Bordeaux after helping them reach the 1996 UEFA Cup final and joined Juventus, where he was a Serie A winner and UEFA Champions League runner-up in each of his first two seasons. Made a then world-record €78m switch to Madrid in 2001.

• Inspired France to 1998 FIFA World Cup glory – scoring two headers in the Saint-Denis final against Brazil – and at UEFA EURO 2000, where he was player of the tournament; winner of the Ballon d'Or in 1998, he was also voted FIFA World Player of the Year in 1998, 2000 and 2003.

• Made it third time lucky in the UEFA Champions League final by hitting a spectacular volleyed winner in Madrid's 2-1 victory over Bayer Leverkusen in the 2002 showpiece at Hampden Park. Landed the UEFA Super Cup, European/South American Cup and Spanish Liga the following season.

• Announced his international retirement after UEFA EURO 2004 yet returned a year later and proved inspirational at the 2006 World Cup – especially with a virtuoso display in a quarter-final triumph over holders Brazil; however, was dismissed for a headbutt on Marco Materazzi in the final against Italy, the last match of his career.

• Became assistant to Carlo Ancelotti in 2013/14, the season Madrid claimed their tenth European title. Took charge of Real Madrid Castilla for the next campaign, and in January 2016 succeeded Rafael Benítez as head coach, leading the club to yet another European Cup that May – the seventh to lift the trophy as player and coach. Added the UEFA Super Cup three months later, making him the fifth man to win that trophy in both guises, and finished 2016/17 by becoming the first coach to win successive UEFA Champions Leagues, also guiding Madrid to a first Liga title in five years.

• Made history in 2017/18 by steering Madrid to another UEFA Champions League, thus becoming the first coach to win the trophy three years running; stepped down five days after victory in Kyiv but returned to the post on 11 March 2019, signing a contract until 2022.
