Club Bruges vs Gent
Belgium – First Division A
Date: Sunday, 3rd February 2019
Kick-off at 13.30 UK/ 14.30 CET
Venue: Jan BreydelStadion (Brugge).
The Club (such a down-to-earth name)is easily the best team at home in the Jupiler League. The bulk of their overall goals came at the Jan BreydelStadion, and it ranks at the top of, the number of goals scored in front of the home crowd. They narrowingly lost out to Mouscron in terms of conceded goals, who have let just nine goals past them, while Ivan Leko’s men conceded ten. One fails to see the point about the former though, considering they have scored just nine too, whereas our Blauw-Zwart has scored a magnificent 30, the next-best being 23.
The Buffalos have a back-and-forth race with St.Truiden for the sixth spot. It seems like the see-saw might tip to the other side this match-day, considering the tough task Jess Thorup’s men have ahead of them.

Club Bruges vs Gent Prediction
Ivan Leko’s men are the best home-team in the competition by a mile. No other side even holds a candle to them in comparison. Quite expectedly, they secure the tag of the favorites for this tie. To justify it further, they have recorded six h2h wins in their last seven attempts at home, and 17 of the last 21 face-to-face wins went to the hosts. Also, this season, the team has scored the most number of goals at home and conceded the second-least.
Expect the home team to take the three points.
Despite the win going to them, their defense has looked a bit shaky in the recent few weeks. Their frightening consistency in luring out clean sheets in front of their fans too took a slight beating, in the last month or so. Just for that reason, I think, Jess Thorup’s men, who are formidable opponents, their label of underdogs in the game notwithstanding, will figure out a way to breach the home defense at least once.
