Noa Lang sees opportunities for Club Brugge in the Champions League against Borussia Dortmund on Tuesday. At the beginning of this month, the Belgian champion had to bow 3-0 to the German club in his own stadium, but nevertheless the Dutch youth international is hopeful. “At home we lost, but the result was a bit flattering. We showed at times that we are also a good football team”, says Lang.
The 21-year-old attacker moved from Ajax to Club Brugge last month. Long delivered his new club on Saturday with a nice goal against KV Kortrijk (1-0). Lang scored with a half bicycle kick after an hour. “The ball came at my feet and the only thing I really thought was: that ball has to go into the net. It was a goal based on intuition.” For Lang it already meant his third goal in five league matches. He is still waiting for his first goal in the Champions League.
“It is up to us to show it on Tuesday,” said Lang about the visit to Dortmund. “It’s a shame that it will be in an empty stadium. These are the matches you do it for, especially in such a stadium. The fact that there will be no supporters may be good for us. Every disadvantage has its advantage, said Cruijff. always. Anyway, we’re going there to try and score points. “
