Club Brugge vs Cercle Brugge Free Pro League Fixture Predictions

After playing six games each in the new season, Club Brugge sits 3rd on the Division A table while Cercle Brugge is 16th in the red zone, and it begs the question, will they make it consecutive wins against the hosts? The following are our best three predictions for the Pro League match:

Club Brugge to score first

Club Brugge is our pick to score first in this clash. They have hit the back of the net 13 times so far while Cercle has only scored thrice in as many matches this season. The good scoring run is why we expect the first goal from Club Brugge.

Club Brugge to score 2 goals or more

Moreover, Club Brugge scored at least/at most twice in six of the last seven encounters with Cercle Brugge. On the other hand, Cercle scored at least once in five of those games. We think Club Brugge has all the conditions in their favour to score 2 or more goals in this game. The visitors only scored more than a goal in only match in the last five duels.

Correct score of 2-1 in favour of the hosts

This is a derby, so both teams will have massive support in Bruges. With that, it is hard to rule out the possibility of both teams scoring in the clash. They netted in four of the last five meetings and in five of the last seven encounters. Notably, the winner in four of the last five games scored at least twice and in the only draw during that time, the derby ended 1-1.

Club Brugge vs Cercle Brugge Belgium Pro League, Division A Match Preview

Club Brugge has previously dominated this Pro League derby against Cercle Brugge. The hosts have 13 wins while Cercle Brugge has 4 victories in the last 20 derbies. During that period, only three draws were recorded in this clash.

Club Brugge

Club Brugge has four wins, one draw and a loss in six games they have played this season. The biggest strength for the hosts has been their scoring run. While Club Brugge has kept only one clean sheet in the six games, the fact that they scored at least twice in four of those matches should inspire confidence ahead of the derby. They have conceded 7 goals, just like the visitors, so defensive prowess of both teams will determine the final outcome.

Cercle Brugge

Winning the previous clash means Cercle Brugge have something to defend in this first Pro League derby of 2022. The visitors won 2-0 when they last met with Club Brugge. However, the Pro League 2022/23 doesn’t look very good for Cercle, especially after winning just once in six games so far. Even more worrying is the fact that the visitors have failed to score in three games. Cercle Brugge has scored only 3 goals in six games, 10 goals less than Club Brugge in as many matches. But with two clean sheets, one more than the hosts, Cercle can bank on the relatively good defence to get a result in this trip. They have not score more than a goal in the six matches but leaked at least twice in half of the games.
