Dost doubts may mean workmanlike win for Club Brugge

Club Brugge have held the bragging rights over city neighbours Cercle since 2013 and been victorious in nine of the last 11 derbies (two drawn), so history suggests there will only be one winner on Friday.

Philippe Clement’s side have had a good start to their domestic campaign with a late comeback sealing a home draw with Eupen in round one followed by a tenacious 1-0 away win at impressive Union SG.

Blauw-Zvart don’t often have a problem scoring goals as 81 last season in the league would indicate, but they are having a few issues up front this season with leading striker Bas Dost.

He struggled in the end-of-season playoffs last term and has not hit his stride yet in this campaign either with Clement replacing him at half-time in last week’s 1-0 win.

Clement’s side are not totally reliant on Dost, but we don’t expect them to rack up a big score here without him in his old bullying form.

Club Brugge have scored exactly two goals against Cercle in each of their last five meetings and the last three clashes have all finished 2-1 to the champions.

That’s why we are taking them to come through by the same scoreline on Friday, noting that Cercle have also been regular goalscorers on their travels over the past few months with five scored in their last seven.
