Club Bruges vs Standard Liege: Preview and Prediction

Club Bruges vs Standard Liege 2018 Belgium Super Cup by LeagueLane

Club Bruges vs Standard Liege
Belgium Super Cup
Date: Sunday 22nd July 2018
Kick off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Jan Breydel Stadium (Bruges).

Club Bruges the champions of Belgium will meet Standard Liege the cup holders for the traditional season curtain raiser, the Super Cup.

These two teams clashed in the Super Cup just a couple of seasons ago and Club Bruges were victorious that day. Club Bruges will be the odds on favourites to win this game but in a one off final at this 30,000 capacity stadium Standard Liege are sure to give a good performance.

Club Bruges as normal will have the biggest budget to buy players and have better resources and a better overall squad than Liege but this game should be very open and there is no clear cut winner in a cup final.

These two teams have a very rich history together and one of them will be able to have the upper hand come Sunday evening.

Club Bruges vs Standard Liege: Head to Head

  • The last 3 matches between the teams had ended in a draw including one game that finished 4-4.
  • In 2016 the teams met in the Super Cup where Club Bruges won 2-1.
  • In the last 9 competitive matches Standard Liege has just 1 victory.
  • There is an 80% chance to see over 2.5 goals scored in this match.

Club Bruges vs Standard Liege: Prediction

We expect an open game because the Super Cup is not the most important cup competition to win so tactics won’t be too strict and we should see both teams have plenty of opportunities.

This is why we will back the over goals markets. This match could go past 90 minutes so we will leave that market, and also look into the correct score.

Club Bruges vs Standard Liege: Bet Tips
