PAOK v Club Brugge Preview | In form Club hoping to build on narrow first leg lead in Greece

Club Brugge are in Greece to face PAOK in the second-leg of their Europa Conference League quarter-final clash with Greek giants PAOK. The Belgian side hold a narrow 1-0 lead thanks to Hugo Vetlesen. They will be hoping to protect that and add an extra goal buffer in Thessalonica on Thursday night.

Club are in good form at the moment under head coach Nicky Hayen. They are unbeaten since Hayen took over from Ronny Deila, with a draw agianst Cercle Brugge and wins over Anderlecht, PAOK and Antwerp. Midfielder Raphael Onyedika has been a driving force in the recent success, grabbing goals and providing an imposing presence in the central midfield areas. Unfortunately the side will still be without Simon Mignolet for the clash, as well as Andreas Skov Olsen and Capser Nielsen.

PAOK have not played since the loss to Club Brugge in Belgium. The side are currently in third place in the Greek Super League Championship group, just two points behind leaders AEK Athens and a point behind second place Panathinaikos.
