Club Brugge vs Beerschot
Belgium – First Division A
Date: Sunday, 23 August 2020
Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Jan Breydel Stadion (Brugge).
After winning the title last season in the league, Club Brugge surprised everyone with a loss at home in the opening match this season against Sporting Charleroi with a narrow 0-1 scoreline.
However, Philippe Clement pulled his team back from that loss and marked a huge comeback with an away win against Eupen FC by a four-goal margin and a clean sheet in the last league clash.
Returning home, the Blue-Blacks will face a promoted side. Beerschot finished fifth in the second division league last season and worked their way to play in the top tier. De Mannekes is on a two-game winning streak, following a 3-1 win at home against Waregem last time out.
Even with such a good start, it will take more than that for Hernan Losada’s boys to trouble the home team at the latter’s strongest suit.

Club Brugge vs Beerschot Prediction
With the promoted side visiting Brugge, expect nothing less of a high-scoring affair at Jan Breydel Stadium. Club Brugge will host after a massive 0-4 win on the road against Eupen FC last time out in the league. So, the host will not probably hold back in netting the goals in ninety minutes.
Philippe Clement and his men will come in as the favorites, and there is no doubt in the reigning champions winning against Beerschot with their inexperience in the top tier.
The home win in full-time is the most expected result in the game, but the punters can go for Club Brugge to win with a -1 handicap in order to yield some decent returns from the clash.
