Club Brugge Prediction

Although they’ve managed just one win from their last six matches, Club Brugge still occupy second place in the Belgian First Division A but they now find themselves seven points adrift of league leaders Genk ahead of Sunday’s clash with third placed Antwerp.

Recent defeats to Sporting Charleroi, Zulte-Waregem and Waasland-Beveren have resulted in the hosts losing valuable ground on the league leaders, and although they recorded a 3-0 home win over Standard Liege, they still need to turn things around here on home turf.

Club Brugge possess an impressive home record of 7-1-1 25/8 which includes recent wins against Cercle Brugge, Oostende and Standard Liege, winning 4-0, 4-0 and 3-0 respectively while midfielder Vanaken (6 goals) along with forwards Wesley and Schrijvers (7 goals apiece) as well as Vossen and Groeneveld (4 goals each) provide the hosts with plenty of goalscoring options.

Antwerp Prediction

Antwerp currently occupy third place in the Belgian top flight but are level on points with their hosts, Club Brugge, as they make their way to Brugge for this Sunday afternoon encounter. The visitors have produced mixed results in recent weeks as they’ve suffered defeats to Sint-Truiden and Waasland-Beveren but have countered with wins over Oostende and Cercle Brugge.

Switching to away form though, Antwerp have won four of their last five on the road with wins at Eupen, Waasland-Beveren, Standard Liege and Cercle Brugge amidst an overall away record of 6-2-1 11/4 and they possess goalscoring midfielder Haroun (5 goals) along with forwards Refaelov and Owusu (6 goals apiece) up front.

Antwerp have failed to score just twice in their 9 away matches to date, so they’ll no doubt be confident they can find the back of the net against an out-of-sorts Club Brugge outfit on Sunday afternoon.

Betting Tips Verdict

Club Brugge need to return to winning ways here while Antwerp possess a decent away record so I’m expecting both teams to score here.
