Hoefkens has made a difficult decision for Leverkusen

Club Brugge and its fans are eagerly looking forward to Wednesday evening. The national champion can give the very best of himself in the Champions League. Opponent is the German Bayer Leverkusen, at the time of writing the number 14 in the Bundesliga. At Blauw-Zwart, they are without a doubt aiming for nothing less than a three-pointer.

The people of Bruges will almost certainly have to do that without Clinton Mata. The defender and strong holder was injured against Cercle brugge in the first half. The damage seems to be not too bad, but Leverkusen is probably still too early. Coach Carl Hoefkens will therefore have to move his pawns. Wait and see who he posts in the back in Mata’s place.

Dedryck Boyata and Denis Odoi are two options for the Club coach. According to The newspapaer there is a good chance that the former will kick off against Leverkusen. Boyata came over from Hertha BSC in August, where he had become redundant. He was already allowed to come in twice for Club. Against Sporting Charleroi (away) he got eleven minutes. He was allowed to show up for thirteen minutes against Cercle Brugge. He may take his first starting spot against Leverkusen.

World Cup IN QATAR

Boyata wants to keep his chances of a selection for the World Cup in Qatar at Club Brugge. He wants to play in West Flanders and thus convince Roberto Martinez. Jan Vertonghen also recently made a similar choice. The record international had been sidetracked at Benfica and opted for a transfer to RSC Anderlecht. In Brussels, he wants to get to play, to flame again for the very last time at a World Cup in the autumn.
