The club's historic date: The pair's concerns about the starting point

The club's historic date: The pair's concerns about the starting point

Club Brugge is currently preparing for one of its most important matches this season. The first leg of the semi-finals of the Conference League is scheduled to be held on Thursday. We will have to wait and see how interim coach Nicky Hayne positions his key players.

The multiple national champions are enjoying their first-ever strong Champions League campaign. One that started early in the preliminary rounds last summer. Blauw-Zwart respectively faced Aarhus GF, KA Akureyri and CA Osasuna, who lost last season's cup final in Spain.

In the group stage of the Champions League, Bodo/Glimt, FC Lugano and Besiktas GK were defeated. During the 1/8 finals, Molde's team was the opponent. Despite a late defeat in the first leg, that double also ended successfully.

Through Florence to the final

To reach the semi-finals, only Greek club PAOK had to be settled. It turned out to be much easier than expected. Under the new approach introduced by Heine, the Greeks won 3-0 in two matches.

Finally, if the club also wants to play the final, it will have to bypass Fiorentina. Last season's final loser is considered a tough opponent, but many experts still see chances for the people of Brugge. So we have to look forward to the starting lineup that Hein will bring between the lines in Florence.

Jackers and Noosa are in trouble

First of all, it remains to be seen who will start between the posts. Nordin Jackers has performed very well in recent weeks, but Simon Mignolet is fully fit again. It is therefore expected that the former Golden Boot will be given preference over his younger regional colleague. Although a final decision has not been made yet.

Another key player who is clearly fearing for his place is Antonio Nosa. However, the match in Florence would be the perfect opportunity to get back into the spotlight. But the young Norwegian is not in good condition and was substituted at half-time in Genk on Sunday. Moreover, there are many contenders for his position with Ferran Gutgla, Philipp Zinkernagel and Andreas Skov Olsen.
