Club Brugge vs Sporting Charleroi
Belgium First Division A
Date: Sunday, 23 February 2020
Kick-Off at 13:30 UK
Venue: Jay Breydelstadion, Brugge.
Derby match of First Division A Round 27 is taking place on Sunday afternoon at Jay Bredel where table leaders Club Brugge welcome Sporting Charleroi. Home team is surely feeling exhausted after investing so much in Thursday’s Europa League playoff match against Manchester United.
Visitors are surely going to try to capitalize on that and make an additional push towards top 3 placement. Don’t be surprised to witness one low scoring affair here. Let’s take a look at recent results and forms of these two teams.
Club Brugge vs Sporting Charleroi Head-to-head
Despite winning a lot of titles and silverware in the last five years, Club Brugge have always struggled in matches against Charleroi, winning only one out of last four encounters.
These two sides have already met once this season, when Sporting were the hosts. Truth be told, it was a boring game ending without goals. Charleroi were victorious the last time they visited this stadium 1-0.
Brugge have won 34 out of grand total of 54 games against Charleroi in history.
Club Brugge vs Sporting Charleroi Prediction
The main reason why Club Brugge sit so lonely at the top of the table is great defending. This squad has conceded only 12 times so far, having the most dominant goal difference in the league of +41. Hans Vanaken is also doing wonders up front, bagging 12 goals so far. He would be our top pick for the goalscorers market that’s for sure.
Brugge didn’t lose one single game at this stadium so far, winning 10 out of 13 matches. It will be interesting to see how they are going to approach team with great defensive stats. The last six Charleroi’s matches on the road have ended Under 2.5 FT.
This is also going to be our pick for the goals market at 1.90 odds. Hosts are tired from Europa League action and may actually rest some players.
