Standard Liege Prediction

Firstly, a look at Standard Liege, and the hosts sit in 4th place and currently occupy one of the Europa League qualifier spots, but they’re just three points behind 3rd placed Antwerp who are sitting in the automatic spot for the Europa League, so plenty to play for in this clash for Standard Liege.

After making a promising start to their Championship Group campaign by recording 3 wins from their first 4 matches of the second phase, Standard Liege have since seen their form slump in disastrous fashion.

Early wins over Antwerp, Gent and a crushing 5-0 win against Anderlecht saw the hosts off to a flyer, but they’ve subsequently lost 4 matches on the trot as they’ve fallen to defeats to Genk, Antwerp, Anderlecht and Gent, so they don’t have a winning momentum prior to this encounter with Club Brugge.

Standard Liege have also lost back-to-back matches at their Stade Maurice Dufrasne with the aforementioned defeats to Genk and Gent, and they’ll face a tough opponent in Club Brugge on Thursday night.

Club Brugge Prediction

Club Brugge sit in 2nd place in the 6-team Championship Group prior to their trip to Liege and trail the group leaders, Genk, by a three-point margin although they did reduce the deficit with a crucial 3-2 home win against Genk last time out.

Club Brugge have produced a pretty solid campaign so far in this Championship Group having lost just 1 of their first 8 matches, which was a heavy 3-1 loss away at leaders, Genk, but 6 wins out of these 8 matches have kept them not only in the hunt for a Champions League qualifier spot, but also an automatic entry into the elite competition too.

The visitors must take all three points here though in order to stay in touch with Genk, and having lost just 1 of their last 10 away matches in the Belgian First Division A, the visitors will fancy their chances of picking up further points in Liege on Thursday night.

Club Brugge also possess some key attacking personnel in the shape of midfielder Vanaken (14 goals) along with forwards Wesley (13 goals) and Schrijvers (12 goals).

 

Key-Facts – Standard Liege v Club Brugge

  • Standard Liege have lost their last 4 matches on the trot in the Championship Group
  • Club Brugge have won 6 of their first 8 matches in the Championship phase
  • Club Brugge have lost just 1 of their last 10 away matches in the Belgian top flight

 

Betting Tips Verdict

With their superior attacking firepower, Club Brugge look the most likely for the win here but give the quarter-ball in case of a draw.
