Current table in the Champions League

Top marksman

Ruud Vormer is enjoying a great goal-per-game ratio, as he has netted a few nice ones recently. Club Brugge will be relying on the services of their in-form marksman yet again when clashing with Manchester City. The visitors are hoping Kevin De Bruyne adds another goal to his current tally. He seems in quite good shape with 3 goals in their last six matches.
