Hot Tip – Both Teams to Score

  • Club Brugge have only failed to score in one of their last six matches in all competitions.

Club Brugge vs Gent team news

Club Brugge

Club Brugge will have been disappointed to have only come away with a point from their trip to Mechelen last weekend. The game ended in a goalless draw despite the best efforts of the Club Brugge attack who just had one of those days in front of goal.

Romeo Vermant, Kyriani Sabbe, Chemsdine Talbi and Josef Bursik have all been rated as doubtful to feature against Gent on Sunday due to injury.

Predicted Lineup: Mignolet (GK), Mechele, De Cuyper, Spileers, Vanaken, Nielsen, Zinckernagel, Vetlesen, Buchanan, Jutglà & Thiago

Gent

Gent cruised to victory at home to RWDM last time out, scoring four goals without reply. Goals from Hugo Cuypers and Hong Hyun-Seok put the home side 2-0 up at the interval and further efforts from Tarik Tissoudali and Julien De Sart rounded off a complete team performance for the title challengers.

Archie Brown, Paul Nardi and Laurent Depoitre could miss the trip to Brugge through injury.

Predicted Lineup: Roef (GK), Torunarigha, Kandouss, Watanabe, Kums, De Sart, Hong, Samoise, Cuypers, Fofana & Orban

Player to Watch: Andreas Skov Olsen

Club Brugge's top goalscorer this season, Andreas Skov Olsen has netted seven times in thirteen starts in the First Division A, and we're backing the 23-year-old to impress once again this weekend.

Skov Olsen has scored five times in his last ten apperances for club Brugge in all competitions but is currently going through a dry spell in front of goal in the league. The Danish forward offers more than just goals for Club Brugge though, three assists in the league make Skov Olsen his team's joint-second-highest creator of goals this season.
