RSC Anderlecht vs Club Brugge
Belgian First Division A
Date: Sunday, 24 February 2019
Kick-Off at 13:30 UK/ 14:30 CET
Venue: Stade Constant Vanden Stock, Bruxelles
Club Bruges travel to Bruxelles for their First Division A Matchday 27 clash on Sunday, just days after seeing a thrashing 4-0 loss and an Europa League exit in the hands of Salzburg – dropping a 2-1 advantage from the first leg and seeing their five-game unbeaten streak ended.
Blauw-Zwart boast a more solid spell of form at home and they have beaten Genk quite convincingly beforehand, surely motivated to replicate such a display at Stade Constant Vanden Stock too. However, seeing just two wins in nine trips across competitions will be more worrying and Ivan Leko will be desperate to find a cure for their defensive woes.
Anderlecht sit eight points behind the 2nd placed rivals and will want to build on a top 6 spot with both Gent and Sporting Charleroi breathing down their necks, struggling for any consistency just as much. Still, they come into the match on the back of an important 0-1 win at Antwerp where a last-gasp winner from Yannick Bolasie proved enough for the points and Purple & Whites will be very motivated for another such quest.
Anderlecht vs Club Brugge: Head-to-head
Club Bruges bagged a narrow 2-1 win over the rivals at Jan Breydelstadion earlier this term.
Anderlecht saw their two-game winning streak in head-to-head clashes ended, now desperate to bounce back to it.
We’ve seen seven goals on those three occasions over the past year, promising another narrow occasion here!
Anderlecht vs Club Brugge: Prediction
We do feel Anderlecht will now have what it takes to hold off the rivals and capitalize on their mid-week disappointment, as we go for a Draw at 3.40 and hope for a tough deadlock to break at Stade Constant Vanden Stock.
Purple & Whites could have to base such a success on another tough defensive display and after seeing just a single goal in their last two outings, we’re now also going for few goals on Sunday with Under 2.5 goals FT at 2.00 – which seems great value with high stakes involved despite seeing both enjoy more exciting clashes beforehand.

- Draw @ 3.40
- Under 2.5 goals FT @ 2.00
