Club Brugge vs KV Mechelen Prediction
Club Brugge picked up their thirteenth win of the season last week after they took down St Truiden on the road with a 2-1 scorecard. The hosts have now admitted defeat just thrice in their last ten games in all competitions and are currently occupying the top spot in the First Division A as well with a healthy seven-point cushion over nearest challengers Gent.
On the other hand, KV Mechelen, have not been faring well in their respective domestic campaigns. The visitors have come out on top just once in their past five games in the top flight and will be making the trip to Jan Breydel Stadion on the back of a 1-1 draw against Kortrijk at home.
It is also worth mentioning that the guests have dropped points in four of their last nine outings. To make matters worse, KV Mechelen have been recording successive defeats in their last four visits to this stadium, and have not secured the bragging rights in any of their previous seven either.
Given that Club Brugge are yet to stumble on home soil this term as well, KV Mechelen’s chances of pulling off an upset are certainly looking bleak.
Furthermore, the hosts have had their scoring boots on in their clashes here, and have found the back of the net six times from their last three games. That too, with a clean sheet intact in each.
Moreover, three of their previous five h2h encounters have been high scoring affairs with over 2.5 goals on the final scoreboards. Taking into account that KV Mechelen have netted ten goals from their last five outings alone as well, count on both teams to rack up the goals tally in this one.
