A week before the Jupiler League returns to action, Club Brugge and Gent go head to head in the Belgian Super Cup final this Sunday. This gives an opportunity for both sides to get their hands on the first major trophy of the season, while also boasting some big new signings that they have made this summer. With these two teams being the top two sides of the Belgian footballing hierarchy right now, the new players in action could be really under the spotlight this weekend.

Club Brugge vs KAA Gent Betting Tips

A big problem for Club Brugge since the last few games of the previous season, as well as this year's pre-season, has been their defending. The club which looks like the favourite to lift the trophy on Sunday has actually not kept a clean sheet in their last 4 pre-season games and 6 of their last 7 games now, continuing from the previous season. Their record against Gent also holds a similar profile, leading to over 2.5 goals combined in 4 of the last 5 meetings. When we talk about Gent, they come into this game having scored in 9 of their last 10 games in all competitions, which is an absolute beast scoring record. We are going to go for BTTS as our best tip for this tie, and a scoreline prediction of 2-1 in favour of Club Brugge.

Club Brugge Team News

Club Brugge has clearly lacked a traditional centre-forward for the last couple of seasons. Charles de Ketelaere and Noah Lang, who are wingers, have been impressive in the forward role, but the club has to turn to a traditional striker if they want to continue striving in Europe next season. In an attempt to do the same, the Belgian giants have wrapped up the signings of Cyle Larin (Free) from Besiktas and Ferran Jutgla (£4.5 million) from Barcelona, both of whom can play comfortably as a lone striker. Larin and Jutgla are not expected to start on Sunday, but the new left-back signing Bjorn Meijer (£4.5 million) has settled into the first team in the pre-season now and will surely have his name on the team sheet this weekend.

KAA Gent Team News

Like Club Brugge, Gent too plays a 3-man defence and resultantly a very wing-focused formation. This has led to a similar problem of the visitors lacking the presence of a proper centre-forward. But in comes Hugo Cypers (3.6 million) from KV Mechelen and the 25-year-old is all set to make his competitive debut on Sunday for Gent, having played a few of the friendlies already. Cypers will be joined on the pitch by another new name, Malick Fofana, who graduated from their academy this summer and has been fast-tracked to the first team at the mere age of 17. Fofana is surely going to be a huge young prospect coming out of Belgium in the coming years.
