WHICH of these sides can take a first leg advantage in this Europa League tie? Chris Graham (@chrisgraham79) takes a look at the odds.

Club Brugge v Dnipro | Thursday 20:05 | BT Sport 2

It may not be the most glamorous tie of the Europa League Quarter-Finals but it’s one full of intrigue.

Belgian side Club Brugge have had one of their best seasons in years and are in the running for a League and Cup double along with this competition. It’s been 10 years since they won the Belgian league and 20 years since they reached the last eight of a European competition. These are exciting times for Michel Preud’homme’s side.

Their opponents are Ukrainian outfit Dnipro. They never expected to reach this stage of the competition and it’s been a toil getting this far. Myron Markevych’s side lost three of their six group matches and needed away goals to get past Ajax in the previous round.

Respect is due for them though as they knocked out dark horses Olympiakos in the Last 32. Both Atletico Madrid and Juventus struggled against the Greek side in the Champions League so this was a great achievement.

Injuries are also not a concern for Dnipro and that’s not the case for Club Brugge. The Belgian side must be finding it hard to fight on three fronts and their loss to Kortrijk on Saturday was a concern.

Brugge are the only unbeaten side left in the competition and their emphatic double win over Besiktas in the previous round deserved every bit of credit it received.

The worry is though, do you want to play at Evens? The Belgians only won one of their home games in their group and I’d rather find some bigger odds. Crucially Dnipro have won just one of their six Europa League away matches this season.

It’s the Correct Score market that I’ll get involved with here and home in on a couple of scorelines. Firstly, a 1-0 win for Club Brugge at 6/1 with BetVictor and secondly on No Goalscorer at 8/1 with Betway.

Hopefully my reasons are clear after reading the article but Dnipro have struggled to dominate away from home while Brugge may be feeling the effects of a long season.
