Venue: Jan Breydel Stadion (Brugge)

Coach Carl Hoefkens made a successful debut in his first official match as his Club Brugge lifted the trophy for the 17th time in the Belgian Super Cup with a minimal 1-0 triumph over Genk. Last term, Club Brugge proved their worth in the Championship play-offs, finishing the group with four triumphs and two draws, which was the 18th Jupiler Pro League title for the Blauw-Zwart. At the other end of the field, Genk had a disappointing 2021/22 campaign, as they barely managed to secure 8th place in the regular season, which was their lowest position since the 2009/10 season, when they finished in 10th place. Genk played six friendlies in the pre-season (4-0-2), and Blauw-Wit managed to motivate themselves before the start of the new season, beating Seraing 4-0 in the last warm-up match.

Club Brugge vs Genk Betting Tips: Home/Over 2,5

The two teams met four times last term, and interestingly, Club Brugge managed to triumph in each of them, including a spectacular 4-3 aggregate win on penalties in the Belgian Cup (3-3 in regular time). An interesting fact should be added, which is that the audience enjoyed each of their four meetings last season, as a total of 20 goals were seen during those duels - an average of 4 goals per match. Also, Club Brugge registered five triumphs in the previous seven home matches against Genk, and interestingly, each of their five triumphs included over 2.5 goals and we expect the trend to continue.

Last season, Club Brugge finished as the second best home team and their attack proved to be very sharp, scoring 36 goals in 17 games, which means they averaged 2.1 goals per match, at home. Like Club Brugge, Genk start the season with a new manager - Wouter Vrancken, who will aim to fix some holes in his team's defense as the Blauw-Wit conceded over 40 goals for the third consecutive year. Club Brugge enjoyed in the season finale last term, started the new campaign with a trophy in the Super Cup, triumphed in all four duels against Genk last season and we believe that they will start the new season in style. Considering that both teams showed sharpness in attack, we believe that we are in for an entertaining 90 minutes and a victory for the hosts.
