Preud'homme: Brugge cannot underestimate Leicester

Club Brugge manager Michel Preud'homme has warned his side's fans to not underestimate Leicester City in the Champions League group game on Wednesday night.

The Belgian side have managed to sell only 20,000 of their 29,000 tickets for the game as the fans of the club have been left underwhelmed by the stature of the opponents.

The Foxes will make their debut in the competition tonight, while Brugge will make their first appearance in a decade.

"Maybe they have the wrong perception of the quality of the opponent that we get at home," he said.

"The Belgium press says it's not a big team but I say they are. They are a big team because they became champions.

"If we get Roma, everyone will say 'Roma, we want to see it' but they might eliminate us. If Arsenal are here everyone will want to see Arsenal but Leicester won against Arsenal, Manchester City, Manchester United and Chelsea and so on. At this moment it means this team are better than the others.

"Maybe people are expecting less from us because on paper they are better."
