Cercle Bruges vs Eupen
Belgium – Jupiler League
Date: Friday, 17 September 2021
Kick-off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Jan Breydel Stadion.
Cercle Brugge have been one of the worst teams in the whole Belgian top flight for the past several years. Meanwhile, Eupen are usual contenders for a mid-table position, and they also have a good h2h record against this foe over the years.
Likely, expect Eupen to post the three points on the board this weekend.
They had finished 12th in the table the last season, and missed out on a spot in the Play-offs II group by just four points.
Meanwhile, Cercle Brugge had narrowly avoided relegation as they finished 16th in a table of 18, and only one other team had scored fewer goals than them – the relegated Mouscron, who were placed dead last in standings.
As such, expect a dominant performance from Eupen, who also happen to be the superior team in h2h meetings.
Cercle Bruges vs Eupen: Head-to-head (h2h)
- The latest encounter had ended in a 1-2 win for Eupen on the road.
- They had won six of the last seven clashes.
- They had kept clean sheets in three of the preceding six meetings.
- It’s been six years since the hosts have recorded a win at this stadium.
Cercle Bruges vs Eupen Prediction
Cercle Brugge had lost four of their past five games, and they were winless in ten of their former thirteen fixtures as well. They are completely winless at home this new season, and in fact have a 100% losing record, barring a single draw.
On the other hand, their opposite number had won three of their past five fixtures, and they had remained unbeaten in ten of their last thirteen match-ups.
Moreover, it’s been over five months since they have lost on the road, and they have scored two or more goals in their past three road trips.
Taking into account these stats, and the h2h superiority by Eupen, expect a win for them this Friday at the Jan Breydel Stadion.
