Club Bruges vs Gent
Belgium First Division A
Date: Sunday, 31 March 2019
Kick-Off at 17:00 UK
Venue: Jan Breydel Stadion, Brugge
It is time for the second phase of Belgium First Division A which is kicking off this weekend. Six teams have ended up in the upper bracket, and the difference between 1st and 6th is only seven points.
This means the title battle is going to be super exciting until the very end. Club Brugge and their fans are hoping for a good start. They are hosting Gent and anything besides victory would compromise the current 2nd position.
Club Brugge didn’t play that well in the first part of the season. They ended 2nd after 30 rounds, seven points behind Genk with highest number of scored goals in the league (64). Games on the road were the biggest issue. Brugge won only six out of 15 duels, which is the weakest result in the last four years.
As for their opposition, Gent had similar issues. They were dominant at home, while rarely returning with three points from away days. Thing that stands out when it comes to this squad is the recent form. Gent have four consecutive victories against Standard, Zulte, Oostende and St Truiden.
