Club Brugge vs Kortrijk
Belgium – First Division A
Date: Friday, 10 August 2018
Kick-Off at 19:30 UK / 20:30 CET
Venue: Jan Breydelstadion, Brugge.
Club Brugge began the title defense quest in a super string fashion, clinching initial wins over AS Eupen and Royal-Excel Mouscron.
They will be looking to maintain the perfect record in the third round as well as they are set to host the struggling Kortrijk side at Jan Breydelstadion.
The visitors took only one point from opening two games. They first suffered a disastrous 1-4 home defeat to Anderlecht before playing a goalless draw away at Antwerp last weekend.
It is certainly a disappointing start for Glen De Boeck and his men who are pushing for the potential Europa League challenge this term.
Club Brugge vs Kortrijk: Head-to-head
- Club Brugge were absolutely dominant in the history of H2H games with Kortrijk.
- Blauw-Zwart won 13 and drew 2 of 15 home clashes against Kortrijk.
- Brugge won each of last three head to head games bagging as many as nine goals in the process.
- It is interesting to note that all of past six H2H outings saw three or more goals as well as both teams scoring.
Club Brugge vs Kortrijk: Prediction
Brugge’s main striker Jele Vossen got off to a wonderful start to the season completing a hat-trick on the opening day against AS Eupen.
Knowing that Kortrijk shipped as many as four in a demolishing defeat to Anderlecht, we see plenty of space for Vossen to add to his three-goal tally and score at least one on the occasion.
Every single parameter goes in Club Brugge’s favour as they dominated the H2H match-up, especially in matches at Jan Breydelstadion.
They opened the new season ion a much better fashion and they have by far better squad on paper.
We don’t need anything else to predict a comprehensive home victory by two or more goals difference in the first game of the third Matchday in First Division A.
Since each of last six head to head games saw goals at both ends, we’d alternatively suggest backing Cub Brugge to win & BTTS at the odds of 2.40.
