  • Competition: Belgian First Division A
  • KO: 19:45 GMT / 20:45 CET
  • Venue: Jan Breydelstadion (Brugge)

An out-of-form Club Brugge will be desperate to rekindle their FDA season when they host old rivals Anderlecht at the Jan Breydelstadion.

Failing to win any of their last seven competitive fixtures (in 90 minutes), Brugge's season is in danger of falling apart, with the home side now 15 points behind league leaders Genk.

Visiting Anderlect arrive in Brugge also struggling for positive results, with the away side losing five of their last eight FDA matches.

Club Brugge vs Anderlecht Betting Tips: Club Brugge to win

Sitting 4th and 11th, respectively, two of Belgium´s biggest clubs are having decidedly underwhelming campaigns. Seemingly out of the title race, Brugge now faces a battle to qualify for the Champions League. For Anderlecht, just six points above the drop zone, another disappointing, if not disastrous, season awaits the 34-times Belgian champions.

Familiar foes, recent meetings between these old rivals have been remarkably tight, with six of their last seven matches finishing deadlocked. Brugge did claim a narrow 1:0 win in these side's most recent game back in October however each of their last three meetings in Brugge finished level with BTTS in all three games.

Indeed, goals can usually be expected when these sides meet up, with six of the last eight also seeing BTTS and considering the hosts' dreadful form, a similar outcome could be on the cards, even if Anderlecht´s recent form hardly inspires much confidence.

Brugge have seen BTTS in five of their six most recent league matches and in each of their last four at the Jan Breydelstadion. While Anderlecht have not proved quite as consistent in the goal markets, four of their last seven away matches did see BTTS. Five of those games also saw over 2.5 goals scored.

Given Brugge's poor recent results, it´s hard to make a great case for the hosts to claim the spoils at 1.9 odds on (at the time of writing). With that in mind, the BTTS selection looks the likelier to land, with Brugge keeping just three clean sheets in their last 11 home FDA matches.
