Zimbabwe and Club Brugge midfield maestro, Marvelous Nakamba is unlikely to be fit enough for his club's UEFA Champions League opener against Germany giants Borussia Dortmund scheduled for Tuesday night.

The 24-year-old defensive midfielder has been out since the beginning of the 2018/19 season due to an excruciating knee injury that saw him miss Zimbabwe Warriors' Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Congo.last weekend.

The Zimbabwean who has already started training with the rest of the team, has been included in Club Brugge's list of 23 players registered to feature in the UEFA Champions League group stages, but the opening game against Germany giants come a little bit too early for Nakamba who is still regaining full-fitness.

Nakamba was the driving force behind Brugge's successful campaign last season where he featured in almost every game for the club playing a massive 2724 minutes in 35 league matches before lifting the Belgian League title.

Club Brugge are in Group A of the UEFA Champions League alongside Spanish side, Atletico Madrid, French's Monaco and Germany's Borussia Dortmund.

They will travel to Atletico Madrid on the 3rd of October to play the return leg.
