Club Bruges vs Standard Liege
Belgium – Playoff Championship
Date: Monday, 8th April 2019
Kick-off at 19.30 UK/ 20.30 CET
Venue: Jan Breydel Stadion (Brugge).
We have a virtual semifinal on the cards, in the Belgium top-division playoffs. Genk is at the top, and despite losing the last game, they are taking on Gent this week and is the favorite to continue at the top. That leaves these two in the second and third positions.
Both teams are separated by a single point, and a win will lift the victor to the second spot, with some buffer of points. As such, the game will be fiercely competitive, and the three points will be the ultimate objective of both.
With both sides excelling in front of the goal in recent ties, there’s all the scope in the world for this match to turn into a goal-fest.

Club Bruges vs Standard Liege Prediction
Bruges has heavily dominated Liege in h2h ties, especially at this venue. It has been to such an extent that only twice has Liege won in the last decade at this stadium. Also, 17 of the last 23 overall h2h wins and 13 of the last 15 at this ground were recorded by the same team. Also, Club was unbeaten in 19 of their last 23 home ties, whereas Liege was winless in 13 of their last 20 on the road. Expect Bruges to post the three points on the board, after sweating it out on the pitch.
Despite the domination by Bruges, they were not able to shut out the opposing defense. In fact, seven of the last ten face-to-face games, and eight of the last ten at this stadium had goals from both sides. Importantly, Liege found the back of the net in 15 of their last 16 matches. Expect goals to come from either side of the pitch this Monday.
