Tip Reasoning

Club Brugge head into this fixture in a bit of a rut in the Belgian top flight, having not won in their last 3 league games since their 4-0 win against Oostende. That has seen them fall 4 points behind league leaders Genk in the title race and drop to third place after Antwerp have overtaken them.

Standard Liege travel to Brugge with confidence, after winning their last 3 consecutive games in all competitions. Their 1-0 win at home to Sevilla in the Europa League pulled them right back in contention for qualification to the knock out stages of the competition. They have also won their last 2 league games, both to nil, after beating Kortrijk 2-0 on the road and following that up with a 3-0 home win against Eupen.

Club Brugge are the best home side in the division, their haul of 19 points from their 8 home league games just surpasses Anderlecht’s total of 18. They have won 6 of their 8 games, drawing 1 and losing 1. Their only loss however came in their last home league fixture, when they were beaten 3-1 by the resurgent Zulte-Waragem.

Standard Liege have been solid on the road this season picking up 11 points from their 8 away league games. They have won 3, drawn 2 and lost 3 away from home this season. They have only played one of the top six away from home so far this season, losing 2-1 away at Anderlecht.

Club Brugge’s scoring form at home has been excellent, scoring 22 goals in their 8 home games this season, averaging 2.75 per game. They are consistent too, netting at least once in every home game this campaign and scoring 2+ in 6/8. Their defence has been a bit shaky on the other hand, keeping just 3 clean sheets on home turf this season.

Standard Liege have scored 11 goals in their 8 away games this season averaging 1.38 per game, scoring in 6 of their last 8. Their defence hasn’t been too bad at all, keeping 4 clean sheets from their 8 games on the road this campaign.

The bookmakers have been fairly generous in their odds, offering the best home side at a reasonable price to get their season back on track. They had a confidence boosting draw away in Germany midweek against Borussia Dortmund and that renewed belief should see them through here. Liege don’t concede many on the road and with the home side being a little bit off their best, we think they will just do enough here, winning the game 2-1.
