After two league games, Belgium's Pro League standings can look deceiving. But last year's champions Club Brugge host leaders Beerschot. It's an unfamiliar feeling but one that Philippe Clement's players must embrace after a sluggish start on their competitive return earlier this month.

They will be favourites to win here, against the league's newcomers, making their top-flight return after a 6-year absence. Will it be business as usual for Belgium's best side here? Or is a surprise on the cards this weekend? Read my match preview, for the correct score predictions and best betting tips ahead of this fixture.

Club Brugge vs Beerschot VA Betting Tips

After back-to-back victories against KV Oostende and Zulte Waregem, newly-promoted Beerschot VA face their biggest challenge yet this weekend. They're top of Belgium's Pro League on goal difference after two games, but up next? Club Brugge, who were 15 points clear of closest, rivals Gent when the season was ended due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Clement's men haven't started the season well: successive 1-0 defeats against Royal Antwerp (Beker van Belgie Final) and Sporting Charleroi.

However, they returned to winning ways in emphatic style with a 4-0 away thrashing against KAS Eupen. Youssouph Badji, Ruud Vormer and a Krepin Diatta brace eased them back towards that triumphant feeling last Sunday.

Although they drew 1-1 in a pre-season friendly last month, these two sides hadn't played each other for 8 years prior. Brugge are unbeaten in their last 6 meetings now, with Beerschot's last victory coming in the 2010 Beker van Belgie quarter-finals.

Can Marius Noubissi (two goals, one assist) and last week's matchwinner Raphael Holzhauser propel them to a surprising but nonetheless impressive victory here?

Club Brugge vs Beerschot VA Correct Score Predictions

From a neutral perspective, it'd be refreshing to see the league's newcomers continue their impressive run of form. However, I expect this will be ended by Belgium's top side last season. They should relish the underdog tag and deliver a spirited showing, but it's likely to ultimately be stifled against better quality opposition on Sunday.
