Westerlo vs Cercle Brugge Predictions

  • Both teams scored in Westerlo’s final three fixtures last season
  • Cercle Brugge saw both teams net in five of their last eight games in 2021/22
  • Brugge didn’t win any of their final five away matches last year

Can Westerlo start with a win?

Newly promoted Westerlo have had a lengthy pre-season, playing eight games in total as they prepare for life in the Belgium First Division A.

Both teams netted in half of those friendlies, as they did their final three games of the previous campaign when form dipped off with the title already won.

This is their first season in the top flight since 2016/17, but they were strong at home last year, losing just once in the league, alongside a further defeat in the cup.

Cercle Brugge keen to start well

Cercle Brugge on the other hand finished the 2021/22 season with a five game winless streak away from home, with both teams scoring in four of those matches.

They actually only conceded 46 league goals through the campaign, but they still leaked regularly, with both teams netting in seven of their final nine outings at all venues.

If pre-season friendlies are anything to go by, those problems have not been rectified, keeping only one clean sheet in four outings, with games including a 2-2 draw with PSV and 1-1 stalemate with Nice.

I predict that both teams will score in this game but also think Westerlo could keep their momentum from last season going, selecting 2-1 as a correct score prediction.
