FK Krasnodar vs Olympiakos

If you're looking for a dead rubber in this Play-Off Round of the Champions League then you won't have to look further than this clash between Russian side FK Krasnodar and Greek team Olympiakos. The away side come into this 8pm BST kick-off at the Krasnodar Stadium with a 4-0 lead and it's almost mission impossible for the hosts to somehow turn this around.

FK Krasnodar will be disappointed that they enter this game with hope all but evaporated from this tie. The heavy loss away to Olympiakos was probably worse than they anticipated. The combination of conceding four goals and then also failing to get a crucial away goal means that Murad Musayev's side must adopt an attacking mentality but also ensure a clean sheet is kept. Conceding even just one goal should certainly end their minuscule chances of qualification.

Olympiakos are looking to bring the glory days back to the Greek capital. Pedro Martins is in a luxurious position with this big lead. He can probably even afford to rest some key players to ensure their domestic form doesn't take a hit. This is also an Olympiakos side that haven't conceded a single goal in the Champions League or Greek Super League this season. A side built on a solid defence is always a positive thing.

The difference between these two sides last week was astonishing. It couldn't have gone worse for the Russian side. Olympiakos look like a side that could be a good bet to win the Greek Super League title back from the hands of PAOK this season and their expected involvement in the Champions League group stage will bring in much-needed revenue that sets them up well. I can see the away side getting something here. I'm not convinced they'll win but I'd be surprised if they didn't get a draw.

Club Brugge vs LASK Linz

The second half of the Champions League Play-Off Round 2nd Leg matches take place tonight at 8pm BST. We nailed the previewed game last night so here's hoping for a repeat performance in the match between Belgian side Club Brugge and Austrian club LASK Linz at the Jan Breydel Stadium. The first leg ended in a 1-0 win for Club Brugge so the advantage is firmly with them heading into this second leg.

Club Brugge are enjoying a positive start to their season so far. The current troubles of their huge rivals Anderlecht must seem like a millions miles away for Phillippe Clement's side who are not only in a strong position in the First Division A but have also shown everything needed to reach the group stage of Europe's elite club competition. A solitary penalty from attacking midfielder Hans Vanaken after 10 minutes sealed the narrowest of wins out in Linz last week. Can the 2018/19 Belgian First Division A runners-up qualify for the last 32 of the Champions League?

LASK Linz might be the second best team in Austria after being denied a triumphant Austrian Bundesliga title win by perennial champions Red Bull Salzburg but they stand on the brink of making history if they can turn this tie around. The club has never managed to reach the group stage of this competition before but are potentially 90 minutes away from doing so. Valerien Ismael's side will need an improved performance on last week's showing when they looked nervous and short on confidence. Doing in Brugge what they failed to do in Linz seems almost impossible but stranger things have happened.

As much as I love to back the underdog and I'd really like to see a new side such as LASK Linz in the group stage of the Champions League I think getting a win against this Club Brugge side on their own patch is asking too much. LASK Linz had a great opportunity last week to lay the foundations down for this second leg and they failed. Not only did they fail but they looked severely short across all areas. I can only see the Belgian side adding to this aggregate lead.
