Brugge to hold HT lead
Beerschot have lost six games in a row, they’ve won just two of their last 20 games across all competitions. Due to their poor form, Beerschot tend to concede first; as they’ve done so in seven of their last eight games. On the other hand, we have a Club Brugge side that won six of their last seven games; it’s fair to point out that they scored the first goal in five of those seven games. As a matter of fact, Club Brugge were leading at half-time in those five games. In the same vein, Club Brugge tend to score first when they go up against Beerschot; they drew first blood in five of their last eight clashes, leading at half-time in those five games. With this in mind, we should expect the visitors to score first, and take the lead before half-time.
Both teams will be on the scoresheet
First, we would like to point out that encounters between these sides have not been one-sided in terms of goals; both teams scored in seven of their last nine meetings. Despite Beerschot’s poor form, they haven’t had much trouble finding the net; Beerschot scored in nine of their last 12 games. Conversely, Beerschot have not been able to keep the goals out; they conceded in all of their last 18 games. Both teams scored in nine of Beerschot’s last 12 games, and in four of Club Brugge’s last six games; for these reasons, we believe that both teams will find the back of the net.
A fair few goals
Club Brugge have been one of the highest scoring teams in the First Division A; only league leaders Union Saint-Gilloise have scored more goals than Club Brugge this season. As a result of their goal scoring ability, Club Brugge’s games tend to be on the high-scoring side; their last six games have gone above the 2.5 goal mark. In fact, those six games saw four goals scored on average, with five of those games going over 3.5. In like manner, Beerschot have had their fair share of high-scoring games; nine of their last 12 games went over 2.5. All things considered, this will likely be a high-scoring affair.
