Club Bruges are the defending champions of the First Division A, and they are once again in the running for the league title. They are in great form, and particularly at home, they have been one of the most dominant teams in Belgium. 

Meanwhile, Leuven are a struggling squad, and are conceding goals in huge numbers. They are also on a poor stretch of performances on the road, and most importantly, they have an inferior h2h record against this rival in past seasons. 

By the looks of things, expect a win for Belgian champions Club Bruges.
