Club Brugge vs Anderlecht: Preview and Predictions

Club Brugge vs Anderlecht
Belgium – First Division A
Date: Sunday, 6 May 2018
Kick-Off at 13:30 UK
Venue: Jan Breydelstadion (Brugge)

Anderlecht travel to Jan Breydelstadion for their Matchday 7 clash on Sunday afternoon after beating Sporting Charleroi 3-1 last week and closing the gap to table-toppers Club Brugge to five points late in the campaign.

This has ended a two-game losing streak for Purple & Whites, though, and although it will be a great confidence booster, it’s questionable if it will be enough with their struggles for consistency on the road. Hein Vanhaezebrouck’s men have suffered losses at Standard Liege and Genk on their last two trips, despite finding the net on both occasions, and this could be more worrying for the travelling fans.

Club Brugge, on the other hand, come into the match on the back of two draws in a row and they’ve been held off by both Standard Liege (4-4) and Genk (1-1). However, we are used to fine displays at this ground and we should see a very motivated outfit on the day as they look to seal the deal in their title chase.

Club Brugge vs Anderlecht: Head-to-head

Anderlecht have bagged a narrow 1-0 win in front of the home crowd midway through April.

Club Brugge boast fine home records and have seen a thrashing 5-0 win over Anderlecht here earlier this term.

Club Brugge vs Anderlecht: Prediction

We will now back the home side to another confident display in front of the home crowd and we’ll go for a Home win at 1.55. We’ve seen Anderlecht struggle defensively on the road and we do believe Club Brugge can capitalize on that.

Nonetheless, we’ve seen the visitors score many goals recently too and with that in mind, Over 2.5 goals FT could prove to be the best approach to the fixture at 1.53. We’ve seen three or more goals in nine of Club Brugge’s last ten home outings, as well as four of Anderlecht’s respective last five on the road.
