Two of Belgium's top three clash this weekend, when third-placed Standard Liege host defending champions Club Brugge.

After two defeats in their opening three Pro League games this term, Saturday's visitors are enjoying a five-match winning streak. Standard Liege by contrast, sit just a point behind them (3rd, 17 pts) and after dropping points against Zulte Waregem last month, have won their last two games.

Can they make it three successive wins (all comps) for only the second time in 2020? Read my match preview, for the correct score predictions and best betting tips ahead of this fixture.

Standard Liege vs Club Brugge Betting Tips

Standard Liege needed 79 minutes to score away at Sporting Charleroi and head coach Philippe Montanier endured a late scare for his troubles too. Mamadou Fall's strike, eight minutes later, proved just a consolation but ultimately made for nervy viewing late on during their 2-1 win on October 4.

It means Saturday's hosts have just one clean sheet in their last seven matches – a 2-0 Europa League qualifying win against Wales' Bala Town. That statistic feels ominous against a high-scoring Brugge side with a league-high 21 goals already.

Midfield duo Hans Vanaken (5) and Krépin Diatta (4) have contributed significantly, so watch how they defend against the pair. They both scored, alongside Ruud Vormer in stoppage-time, during a comfortable 3-0 win over Anderlecht before this break.

Form isn't always of paramount importance after a fortnight between matches, but Brugge are aware that leaders Charleroi have struggled recently. In addition to their 2-1 loss by Standard, they fell at the final hurdle in Europa League qualifiers on October 1.

A victory here for Brugge propels them into top spot again – at least for 24 hours – as Charleroi face an away trip to Genk on Sunday. We're still at an early stage of the campaign but marginal gains and psychological boosts like this one will motivate Brugge to end a run of three matches without victory against Liege.

Standard Liege vs Club Brugge Correct Score Predictions

I'm predicting BTTS for this clash, between sides with a competitive H2H record. Brugge lead it (W7, D6, L4) but Liege haven't lost any of their last three meetings.
