Club Brugge vs Oostende Prediction
Club Brugge succumbed to their maiden defeat of the season, in their last clash with Antwerp, on the road after the latter mustered a comeback in the second half to record a 2-1 victory. The hosts are still sporting an admirable five-point cushion at the top though and are yet to be at the losing end on home soil this season.
On the other hand, Oostende went into the international break after finally bringing their five-game losing streak to a halt. The visitors managed to hold Mouscron to a 2-2 draw in that match, presenting them with their only point in six games.
It is also worth mentioning that the guests have stumbled five times already on the road, and have just one to win boast of from their last six outings in all competitions. The guests have not been faring any better in their previous visits to this venue either and have admitted defeat in nine of their past ten.
As such, given the sheer dominance that Club Brugge have been exerting in their own backyard, the hosts are the outright favorites to pick up all three points in this one.
Furthermore, the hosts been consistent in scoring two goals or more in each of their last five h2h meetings with this foe here. Given that Oostende have conceded six times in their previous three outings alone, count on Club Brugge to be keen on racking up the goals tally in this one.
