In prolific form in the Champions League, Al Hain-Cole expects another high-scoring victory for Guardiola's men against the Belgian side

Manchester City will be determined to return to winning ways when they welcome Club Brugge to the Etihad Stadium for Wednesday’s Champions League clash.

Pep Guardiola’s men are without a victory in two games, having followed up their surprise Carabao Cup elimination against West Ham with a shock 2-0 home defeat to Crystal Palace at the weekend.

Manchester City vs Club Brugge latest odds

Nevertheless, Man City are overwhelming 1/10 (1.10) favourites with bet365 to bounce back by coming out on top against a team they beat 5-1 in Belgium two weeks ago.

Club Brugge have lost just two of their last 11 Champions League fixtures on the road but are 22/1 (23.0) underdogs to pull off a shock win here.

Five of the visitors' last 10 away games in this competition have resulted in draws, and you can get odds of 17/2 (9.50) on them earning a creditable point in this one.

Manchester City vs Club Brugge first goalscorer

Riyad Mahrez is a strong 9/2 (5.50) first goalscorer option against the team he put two past in the reverse encounter, with Gabriel Jesus a less appealing option at those same 9/2 (5.50) odds after nine matches without a goal for club and country.

Bas Dost can be backed at 14/1 (15.0) to open the scoring following four goals in his last two games, although Hans Vanaken looks even better value at 25/1 (26.0) considering he has been on target in each of his last five Champions League appearances.

Manchester City vs Club Brugge preview

Although they have failed to score in their last two fixtures, City have been in prolific form in this competition - hitting the net 11 times in three group games.

With Philippe Clement’s team having failed to score just twice in 11 Champions League matches, and struck twice in three of their last four on the road, another high-scoring clash seems likely between this pair.

Manchester City vs Club Brugge tips & predictions

Indeed, odds of 4/5 (1.80) are well worth backing on City coming out on top in their third Champions League game in four to feature over 3.5 goals against a Club Brugge team they thrashed 5-1 two weeks ago.
