Royal Mouscron vs Cercle Brugge
Belgium First Division A
Date: Saturday, 22 February 2020
Kick-Off at 19:00 UK
Venue: Stade Le Canonnier, Mouscron
It seems like Cercle Brugge are finally awakening. Two recent victories have significantly reduced the gap from other table strugglers and improved team’s chances to avoid relegation. They are having a rough away day this Saturday though, playing at Stade Le Canonnier.
Mouscron haven’t been an easy team to predict lately. They are basically known for either losing or winning streaks this season, without any middle ground. Fans are hoping to see another solid performance and 6th win at this stadium.

Royal Mouscron vs Cercle Brugge Prediction
We were slightly surprised to see such high 2.45 odds offered on home victory here. After all, Mouscron are 10th placed team playing against the weakest squad judging by stats. They also have decent 5-5-3 record at home.
Also, Royals are entering this clash with high confidence and two consecutive victories against KV Oostende 3-1 FT and Zulte Waregem 2-1 FT. There were four back-to-back losses before that though.
Cercle Brugge also got six points from the last two outings, beating Mechelen and St Truiden. That slightly improved embarrassing record of 11 losses and one draw away from home.
Despite Cercle’s recent streak, we simply have to pick home victory here. The price is phenomenal and should not be ignored. Don’t go crazy with the stakes though.
History also says there is going to be at least three goals in this match. Over 2.5 FT is priced at decent 1.80 rate.
