Cercle Brugge Team News
Last season, the home team finished the competition already in April, since they failed to reach the playoffs. The changing form during most of the season resulted in an unexpectedly weak ranking in the table, and they did not start the new season in the best way.
They were defeated by Westerlo with 2:0, without sending a single shot into the opponent’s goal.
Bearing in mind that this season they have one of the cheapest playing squads in the championship, few expect any significant success from them.
Anderlecht Team News
Anderlecht finished third in the table last season, which can be considered a big failure. This season, the ambitions are significantly more serious, so Anderlecht’s players made an effort to hint at that already in the first round.
They were better than Oostende with 2:0, although it is a subjective feeling that it would not have been undeserved if they had scored 5 goals in that game.
They have strengthened with the arrival of several great individuals, and if the dice are stacked, Anderlecht will be the main contender for the title this season.
Three of the last four head-to-head matches when Cercle Brugge was host ended with at least 3 goals scored. We hope that tradition will continue.
Injuries and suspensions
The home team will be without Popović, while the Anderlecht team will be weakened by the absence of Lissens.
Cercle Brugge vs. Anderlecht Prediction
Anderlecht will try to take advantage of the home team’s crisis and continue a series of positive results. Also, we believe that the visiting team’s players will be able to punish the defensive weaknesses of Cercle Burugge’s defensive line.
