Hello and welcome to our “march banter” feature for this evening’s game, the second leg of our Group D contest against Club Brugge.
This evening Newcastle United meet a Club Brugge side who are in turmoil, having sacked the manager who faced us in our previous game two weeks ago after he lost his fifth game on a row, taking the side from top of the Belgian League down to eighth, which is right in the middle of the table as there are only 16 teams.
The Magpies are already looking fairly strong at the top of our table with seven points from our first three games, and a victory this evening should see us through to the next round at least as one of the top two in our group. On the other hand however, Alan Pardew will not have had a chance to see any Club Brugge games under their new caretaker coach, Philippe Clement, as they haven’t played any yet! So, they could be a “surprise package”. However, for a more in depth background to the game this evening, you could always check out my previous match preview which will keep you abreast of all the team news, along with lots of other stuff too.
One thing which is still to be revealed though are the starting line ups, which I will be posting below when they become available. As usual with our Europa League fixtures, the game will be brodcast on ESPN in the UK, though I shall also be posting some online links for game when they become available, as well as match highlights and hopefully, a video of the whole match when it is over. Which only leaves it for me to say
Howay the Lads!
