On October 31, Brugge will host Mechelen. The composition of the guests is weakened due to the absence of a number of players. Will this help the hosts get a landslide victory? – the answer is in our forecast.
Club Brugge leaves a very pleasant impression in the Champions League this season . The team managed to outplay Zenit in the opening round (2: 1) and draw the meeting with Lazio (1: 1).
In the last game of the national championship, Philippe Clement’s charges lost to Heverly Louvain (1: 2). This defeat led to the Black-Blues losing their leadership in the Major League, leaving Antwerp ahead.
Wauter Vranken’s charges did not start the season in the best way. The team has only seven points scored in nine matches. If you fail to improve your results, you will have to fight for survival. Now the team is in 15th place.
Mechelen have lost their last two matches – Antwerp (1: 4) and Kortrijk (1: 2). This is largely due to the fact that 11 players are in quarantine.
The teams met among themselves twice last season. In both cases, Club Brugge confidently won
Club Brugge have played under 3.5 total goals in 8 of their last 10 home matches
“Mechelen” 4 of the last 10 away matches have finished 3.5 goals on TM
11.07.20 Bruges Mechelen 6: 0
12/15/19 Bruges Mechelen thirty
09/28/19 Mechelen Bruges 0: 5
07/18/18 Mechelen Bruges 0: 0
12/20/17 Mechelen Bruges 0: 3
It will be difficult for the guests, given that 11 players are in quarantine and will not be able to help in the next fight. On the other hand, it is important to say that Club Brugge now has a very difficult calendar. The team gave a lot of energy in the Champions League matches.
Brugge’s side will most likely involve the rotation of the roster. It is for this reason that we believe that the fight will not be very effective. The guests will try to focus on the defensive play, and Philippe Clement’s charges are unlikely to be ready to play the entire match at the highest speeds now.
Our prediction is total less than 3.5 goals per 1.65 at the Winline bookmaker .
