Antwerp Preview – Can Antwerp showcase their title credentials with a statement win over the champions?

Antwerp will be looking forward to next week’s draw for the last-32 of the Europa League having qualified from their group along with Tottenham. However, before they can focus on that they have the small matter of hosting the current Belgian champions. A win for the home team would put them to within two points of their opponents in what is an extremely congested race for the title.

Losing away to Tottenham in midweek deprived them of top spot in the Europa League but the more damaging of their defeats in the past seven days was a 4-2 reverse against current leaders Genk. This is the perfect opportunity to silence anybody who is doubting their credentials following that defeat.


Our betting prediction:
Under 2.5 goals

There’s no question that this is a team whose success is predominantly built on their home form. Antwerp are excellent on their own match and looking to extend their unbeaten home record in the league to 23 games. their last defeat in a league game here was in May 2019 when losing to Gent who went on to win the title that season.
Antwerp will also take a lot of confidence from the fact they not only defeated Club Brugge here last season, but also in the cup final which was played as the curtain-raiser to this campaign.

Club Brugge Preview – Are Brugge set to take control of the title race with a vital win on the road?

It was heartache for Club Brugge in midweek. The Belgian champions knew they had to win in Rome in order to qualify for the next stage of the Champions League and all looked lost when going down 2-1 and then being reduced to 10 men. However, they showed tremendous character to get on level terms only to be denied by the crossbar in the closing stages. They will now have to settle for dropping into the Europa League.

Philippe Clement will be hoping his team are over that disappointment in time for this one as they have a real battle on their hands to retain their title.

Playing six Champions League games in as many weeks and in between domestic action was always going to stretch Club Brugge’s squad. And that’s been the case. Brugge have stuttered in the league of late, particularly on their travels. It’s just two wins in their last five away matches and that’s allowed the challengers to close in on them and for Genk to overtake them.

The more optimistic supporters will look at as being just one defeat in their last 15 away games in the league, however, that loss coming recently against OH Leuven.

Antwerp vs Club Brugge Betting Advice

It’s a battle between the current champions and the team that prevented them from completing a famous double just the matter of a few months ago. Antwerp know how to frustrate and defeat this Club Brugge team. Having drawn three straight meetings here in the league they finally got that elusive win just over a year ago and then followed it up with an excellent win in the cup final.

It’s not the game Brugge would have picked out following such a tough Champions League match but it should focus their minds following that disappointment.

Key Facts – Antwerp vs Club Brugge Betting Tip

  • Antwerp are looking to maintain a record of 22 league games unbeaten at home
  • The champions have won just two of their last five in the league
  • Club Brugge have failed to win on any of their last four visits to this ground – losing 1-0 here last season


Club Brugge are rightly favourites for this but there’s plenty of reasons to side with Antwerp and none more so than that fantastic home record. I’m taking them to extend it further by taking the win here.
