Club Brugge vs Standard Liege: Preview and Predictions

Club Brugge vs Standard Liege
Belgium – Cup
Date: Thursday, 8 February 2018
Kick-Off at 19:45 UK
Venue: Jan Breydelstadion (Brugge).

Club Brugge had no adequate opposition in Belgium in the first part of the season, but the team has huge troubles with keeping things tight at the back at the start of the New Year. FCB still have the First Division S title in the bag being 11 points clear off the second-placed Sporting Charleroi, but the dream of the double crown is heavily jeopardized after the demolishing 4-1 defeat the team has suffered seven days ago at Stade Maurice Dufrasne.

Coming back from such a loss is a mountain to climb for Ivan Leko and his men, particularly if we know that Club Brugge have shipped two or more goals in each of last five games in all competitions. Things looked particularly bad in last two outings which have seen Leko’s side allow seven goals against Standard and Sporting Charleroi (3-3 draw in the weekend’s league tie).

The story is completely opposite with the visitors who are flying high after the huge win in the first leg of the cup semis. The Reds have backed it up with another stunning attacking showing destroying Lokeren 0-3 on the road to break into the top half of the league standings.

Club Brugge vs Standard Liege: Head-to-head

Before Standard’s 4-1 win from last Wednesday, Club Brugge won two on the bounce with an impressive goal difference of 7-0 against the Reds.

Each of last six H2H ties between the two likes saw three or more goals scored.

At home, Club Brugge have won 16 and lost only 65 of 31 ties with Standard Liege.

Club Brugge vs Standard Liege: Prediction

A real miracle should happen for this match to turn out to be a low-scoring one. The hosts need to chase the big deficit and go strong from the very first minute which should leave plenty of room for the red-hot attack of Standard’s to strike back.

When we add that each of last six head to head encounters ended with at least three goals scored, we just have to see the Over 2.5 goals FT as a genuine banker at 1.61 odds.

The value-seekers can try with the home win & BTTS pick, priced up at 3.25.
