Real Madrid head into their clash with Club Brugge on Wednesday knowing their spot in the Champions League knockout stage is secure.
Five points ahead of the Belgian side and five behind Group A leaders Paris Saint-Germain, Los Blancos will qualify as runners up regardless of the night's other result.
However, Club Brugge may be galvanised by the prospect of continuing their European journey in the form of the Europa League, as they only need to equal or better Galatasaray's result to finish third.
