Cercle Brugge Preview – Can Cercle Brugge pick up?

Last season’s early curtailment of the Belgian First Division A would have come as welcome news for Sunday’s hosts, Cercle Brugge, as they occupied third from bottom in the Belgian top flight and just three points above the basement-dwellers, Waasland-Beveren, but this new season has also resulted in a disappointing start for Cercle Brugge.

Last week’s opening day of this season ended in defeat for Cercle Brugge who suffered a 1-0 loss away from home at Standard Liege, and although the hosts had previously put together a four-match winning streak towards the end of the last campaign with wins against Mechelen, Sint-Truiden, Excel Mouscron and Gent, these were rather the exception than the rule.

Five home wins out of their last 19 matches at home underline Cercle Brugge’s problems overall, while previous exchanges against Sunday’s opponents, Antwerp, have also ended in defeats – indeed, Antwerp have won each of the last five meetings on the trot and they look set for further success against Cercle Brugge here.

Antwerp Preview – Can Antwerp take advantage?

Sunday’s visitors, Antwerp, finished in 4th place at the end of last season’s albeit shortened First Division A campaign, and the visitors will be looking to repeat their promising season this time around too as they prepare for this trip to Brugge.

Antwerp picked up a point in last week’s season-opener against Excel Mouscron in a 1-1 draw at their Bosuilstadion, and although this was a slightly disappointing result, they know they have a great chance of gaining their first win of this new First Division A campaign against Cercle Brugge.

Overall results have been favourable for Antwerp over a period of time in the Belgian top flight as they’ve lost just two of their previous 17 matches, while their away form suffered towards the end of last season with losses incurred at Club Brugge and Standard Liege, they also recorded a 2-1 win last time out at the Jan Breydelstadion.
