Nigeria International Emmanuel Dennis is expected to return to Club Brugge’s starting XI against Galatasaray at the Türk Telekom Stadium in tonight’s UEFA Champions League.
The 22-year-old was a second-half substitute, coming in for compatriot David Okereke, in Club Brugge’s 2-0 win over KV Oostende in the Belgian Pro League last Friday.
Leicester City are being linked with a move for Dennis as a long term replacement for veteran forward and club legend Jamie Vardy.
Club Brugge make the trip to Turkey to take on Galatasaray knowing that they require three points to maintain their slim hopes of qualifying for the Champions League knockout stages.
Given the current Group A standings, Brugge need to beat Galatasaray to stand any chance of catching second-placed Real Madrid.
A defeat would mean Europa League football at best for the rest of the season, so this is effectively a mini-final for the Belgians in Istanbul.
The two sides have met three times in the Champions League.
