Club Brugge vs Zulte Waregem Prediction
Brugge were on the road the last match-day, and they were held to a 1-1 draw by Gent. In the meantime, Waregem were defeated on the road by arguably the worst team in the competition, Cercle Brugge the prior game week, and that too, with a clean sheet.
As things stand, the favorites for the day are easily Club Brugge. They are easily the best team in the league, and are placed at the top of the table. Keep note that they have a lead of eight points at the first position, despite still having a game in hand.
Moreover, the team has also scored the most number of goals of all the teams in the competition (only squad to touch the 40-goal mark), and have conceded the least as well. It deserves special mention that every single team have had conceded more than double that of Club Brugge.
On top of all that, the team has the home advantage, where their sole two losses since April have come against PSG, and Real Madrid in the Champions League.
On the other hand, Waregem are on a two-match losing run on the road, and have a total of just three wins this whole season away from home.
Most importantly, over the years, Club Brugge have been the better team in h2h clashes, and especially so at their home. In fact, Brugge recorded 11 of the former 13 h2h wins, and scored a total of 25 goals from the prior nine encounters alone.
Moreover, at this venue, Brugge won seven of the previous eight h2h battles, and 15 of the previous 19 as well. They had also kept clean sheets in four of the last eight such meetings, while having scored two or more goals in 14 of the last 19.
Considering all these factors together, it’s easily deducible that Club Brugge hold all the cards here. Obviously the top pick is going to be a huge win for the team.
