Club Brugge vs Waasland-Beveren
Belgian First Division A
Date: Friday, 19 October 2018
Kick-Off at 19:30 UK / 20:30 CET
Venue: Jan Breydelstadion (Brugge).
The reigning champions were dropped down from the very top of the standings after suffering their maiden defeat of the campaign two weeks ago away at Standard Liege. They shipped three goals at Stade Maurice-Dufrasne revealing defensive vulnerability against a top quality opposition.
Luckily for the head coach Ivan Leko, his men won’t be up against such opponent in league’s inaugural fixture after the international break. Blauw-Zwart will have a nice opportunity to regain the leading spot with a victory over bottom-half Waasland-Breveren on Friday evening at their Jan Breydelstadion.
The visitors saw a rise in form after a rather poor kick off to the new season. They will go into this unbeaten in four straight league ties, but such thread will be in jeopardize when Beveren take on one of the strongest attacking lines in the division.
