Club Brugge coach Philippe Clement has back Nigerian U23 striker David Okereke to end goal drought when they face Anderlecht at Jan Breydel Stadium on Sunday.

Club Brugge forward David Okereke says the club have nothing to lose in their Champions League Group F clash against Lazio on Tuesday (today).

Serie A club Lazio have the edge in the race to progress from the group.

Simone Inzaghi’s side have nine points so far, one behind already-qualified Borussia Dortmund and two above Brugge, with whom they drew 1-1 in the reverse fixture.

Another draw would therefore be enough for Lazio to make the knockout rounds; Brugge simply must win to go through.


Club Brugge head into the game in confident mood following a 1-0 win against lowly Sint-Truiden in their Belgian Pro League clash on Saturday.

Okereke, who scored the winning goal in the 59th minute insists can beat their hosts who have not kept a clean sheet in any of their 16 most recent Champions League group games – including their last eight at home.

”If you have just won, you will go into the next match with full energy. We have nothing to lose there. We can write a nice story,”Okereke told the club’s official website.
