Club Brugge vs Eupen
Belgium First Division A,
Date: Sunday, 25 July 2021
Kick-off 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Jan Breydelstadion.
Club Brugge are massive favorites to begin their title defense quest with a three-pointer against Eupen at Jan Breydelstadion.
Brugge celebrated their second consecutive First Division A title last season despite a dreadful campaign in the Championship Round.
They enter the 2021/22 campaign as huge favorites to make it three titles on the spin. So far, the team managed to keep most of their main stars, including Bas Dost, Michal Krmencik, Mats Rits, and Charles De Ketelaere.
To make things better, they also signed phenomenal winger Noa Lang on a permanent deal from Ajax. Lang bagged 16 goals in 29 appearances for them on loan last season.
Lang was one of three goalscorers in Club Brugge’s 3-2 victory over Genk in the Belgian Super Cup clash played eight days ago.
Philippe Clement’s troops have thus scored at least two goals in each of the last five games (including pre-season friendlies) and they are ready to translate such a brilliant form to the league.
Eupen did not change their squad much from the previous season. They did lose two influential forwards Knowledge Musona and Amara Baby (24 appearances each last season).
The visitors seem to be too reliant on Bosnian forward Smail Prevljak at the moment. IT will be interesting to see whether they will sign a new striker before the transfer window closes.
