Cercle Brugge vs St.Truiden
Belgium – First Division A
Date: Monday, 21 September 2020
Kick-off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Jan Breydel Stadion.
Both these teams have been two of the worst in the whole league, and if not for relegation being cancelled in 2019-20, they would have been seriously under the threat of getting the boot. In fact, the Green and Black had a surplus of just three points over the dead-last Waasland-Beveren.
Going on, defense has been a major problem for both these squads down the stretch, and it seems to be the case this time around as well.
In addition, majority of h2h clashes have also produced goals in plenty, and considering all these factors, expect a high-scoring game this Monday.

Cercle Brugge vs St.Truiden: Prediction
Paul Clement’s men have not kept a clean sheet in their past ten matches, and have just kept three of those at home since June of 2019. They have also had a total of just eight wins over the course of the past 15 months.
Meanwhile, their opposite number are on a five-fixture winless run, and have had a total of just one win away from home in the whole of 2020 so far.
The Canaries have also had a total of just five clean sheets from their past twenty fixtures, and have had just one of those on the road since September of 2019.
Going on, leaky defense from both teams have gave way to countless goals in h2h encounters over the past several years as well. In fact, every such meeting at this ground in the past 13 years has had three or more goals.
Taking into account all these observations, expect a goal-fest this Monday.
