Club Brugge Prediction

Club Brugge sit in second spot in the Belgian First Division A and seven points adrift of league leaders Genk but hold just a two point cushion over 3rd placed Antwerp, so they’ll no doubt be keen to make the most of home advantage at their Jan Breydelstadion, having won three of their last four matches overall in the Belgian top flight.

Recent wins against Antwerp 5-1, Lokeren 1-0 and Oostende 2-1 have helped maintain Club Brugge’s push for a top six finish and then a shot at European football next season. Although the hosts have suffered a couple of recent losses on home turf to Zulte-Waregem and Sporting Charleroi, the hosts have generally been pretty steady on home turf this season.

A home record of 8-1-2 30/10 suggests they should be too strong for Gent here, especially as the goals have flowed from the hosts with Club Brugge scoring 2 goals or more in 8 of their 11 home matches to date.

 

Key-Facts – Club Brugge v Gent

  • Club Brugge have won 3 of their last 4 matches in the First Division A
  • Club Brugge have scored 2 goals or more in 8 of their 11 home matches
  • Gent have won just 1 of their last 6 away from home

 

Gent Prediction

Gent occupy the last remaining spot in the Championship Round and hold a slender one point margin ahead of 7th placed Sint-Truiden, and a trip to face a free-scoring Club Brugge could provide the visitors with a stern test on Sunday afternoon.

Gent have also won three of their last four matches overall in the First Division A with victories against Cercle Brugge, Anderlecht and Kortrijk. However, the latter result was their first away win for five matches of which they lost four of these with defeats at Royal Excel Mouscron, Anderlecht, Sporting Charleroi and Genk.

An away record of 4-2-5 20/20 smacks of inconsistency, and the fact that the visitors have conceded 20 goals on their travels suggests they could be very susceptible at the back against a rampant Club Brugge outfit.

Betting Tips Verdict

Club Brugge have had a couple of setbacks at home recently but they should have too much firepower for Gent in this one.
