First Division A at Coral

Friday night brings us action from the Belgian top flight with Club Brugge taking on Sint Truiden as the betting tips continue at the Jan Breydelstadion.

Club Brugge Prediction – Can Club Brugge make it 2 out of 2?

Last weekend saw the start of the new Belgian First Division A season and Club Brugge wasted no time in grabbing all 3 points on opening day.

A resounding 3-1 win away at pre-season relegation candidates, Waasland-Beveren, got Friday night’s hosts off to a flying start.

In fact, that win last weekend became Club Brugge’s third win on the trot in recent times as they’d previously beaten Union St Gillois and Sporting in pre-season friendlies.

Club Brugge will be desperate to go one step better this time around though as they finished runners-up to First Division A title winners, Genk, last season.

Although form away from home could have been better, Club Brugge’s home record finished up on an impressive 10-2-3 36/14.

Their 10-win haul at home was equalled only by 3rd placed Standard Liege, and Club Brugge ended the season by winning their last 5 home matches on the trot.

With the second phase of the Belgian domestic season splitting the top flight into Championship Round and Europa League play-off, Club Brugge played 20 home matches last season.

It’s perhaps no surprise therefore that the goals flowed at the Jan Breydelstadion as 15 of Club Brugge’s 20 home matches resulted in over 2.5 goals, with 13 of these 15 being wins for the hosts.

Sint Truiden Prediction – Can Sint Truiden avoid back-to-back defeats?

Following their opening day defeat at home to Royal Excel Mouscron, the last place Sint Truiden would have wanted to go to would be Club Brugge.

But here we are, and Sint Truiden will be eager to avoid a second defeat on the trot at the hands of an in-form Club Brugge outfit at the Jan Breydelstadion.

The visitors have actually lost 3 of their last 4 matches in the Belgian top flight which includes defeats to Club Brugge (away last season), Gent and Mouscron.

Indeed, Sint Truiden have managed to record just 1 league win out of their last 6 matches and that was a 3-1 home win over Sporting Charleroi.

Results away from home were also underwhelming as they registered just 3 away wins from their last 11 trips in the First Division A.

Despite losing just twice at home during the regular season, Sint Truiden narrowly missed out on the cut for the Championship Round.

This was largely down to an average looking away record which finished up at 4-6-5 20/20 and they have a dreadful record at Club Brugge too.

Sint Truiden have failed to beat Club Brugge away from home in their 21 attempts to date, and this trend looks set to continue on Friday night.


Key-Facts – Club Brugge v Sint Truiden

  • Club Brugge have won their last 5 home matches on the trot
  • 15 of Club Brugge’s 20 home matches have resulted in over 2.5 goals
  • Sint Truiden have failed to beat Club Brugge away from home in their 21 attempts


Betting Tips Verdict

Club Brugge have dominated at home in recent times and they should bag another 3 points here with goals coming along for the ride too.
