Kickoff is scheduled for 9 p.m. Central European Time at the 29,000-seat Jan Breydel Stadium, formerly known as Olympic Stadium, in Sint-Andries, Bruges, Belgium on Wednesday, August 28.

Club Brugge takes a 1-0 aggregate lead, albeit with a crucial away goal, into the second leg of their qualifying playoff, thanks to a 10th-minute penalty last week in Linz by Hans Vanaken, per UEFA.com. That means if they can avoid allowing more than one goal, they will advance — a good prospect considering that the Belgian side who placed second to Genk last season in their domestic league have kept clean sheets in five of their last six UEFA Champions League games.
LASK on the other hand have never reached the final playoff stage in the UEFA Champions League qualifiers, and have lost all three UCL two-legged ties in which they have suffered first-leg defeats.
