Gent vs Club Bruges
Belgium – First Division A
Date: Sunday, 5 May 2019
Kick-Off at 17:00 UK
Venue: GHELAMCO-arena, Gent
Gent have struggled for points in the Championship round and sit 6th with just one point earned in last seven outings, where they held off Anderlecht in April but also suffered narrow home losses to Genk and Mechelen since.
De Buffalo’s now host in-form Club Bruges looking to finally put an end to the unwanted streak, having finally looked better at the back but still struggling to keep clean sheets. They’re just a point behind 5th placed Anderlecht and an Europa League Play-offs, which is still bound to have them very motivated to recuperate as Jess Thorup looks for a cure.
Club Bruges have, on the other hand, bagged a narrow win over Anderlecht last week to end a two-game winless streak and retain a six-point gap to the table-toppers Genk.
With just four games left to play, we expect the visitors just as desperate for points and this promises a more careful approach on both ends quite possibly also implying a narrower contest between the sides.
Gent vs Club Bruges: Head-to-head
Club Bruges have outclassed Gent in a 3-0 home win in late March.
We’ve seen Gent snatch just one point in three head-to-head clashes between the sides this term.
We’ve also seen two or fewer goals in four of the last six matchups, as we now hope for another such occasion.
Gent vs Club Bruges: Prediction
We will back Club Bruges to cause an upset and snatch all three points at GHELAMCO-arena, as we go for an Away win at 1.70 in the hope they’ll be able to put on a confident display and capitalize on the rivals’ woes now as well.
However, we don’t feel we’re in for a very one-sided clash this time and we now hope to see Gent more solid at the back, as we also go for Under 2.5 goals FT at 2.35. With high stakes involved, it looks overpriced at this point and we have seen such occasions between the sides on the regular too.
