Hot Tip – Both Teams to Score

  • Both teams have scored in three of Club Brugge's last five outings.
  • Three of Westerlo's last five competitive and non-competitive matches have ended with both teams scoring.

Club Brugge vs Westerlo team news

Club Brugge

Club Brugge's final league game of 2023 provided them with a chance to reduce the gap between themselves and the league leaders Union Saint-Gilloise. Despite having the home advantage, Club Brugge went in at the break a goal down to Union but a fifty-sixth-minute penalty from Thiago leveled the scoreline. The visitors had their goalkeeper sent off deep into stoppage time but Club Brugge were unable to capitalise and the game ended in a draw.

Romeo Vermant, Kyriani Sabbe, Chemsdine Talbi and Josef Bursik are the main injury concerns for the hosts this weekend, while Raphael Onyedika is away with Nigeria at AFCON 2023.

Predicted Lineup: Mignolet (GK), Mechele, De Cuyper, Spileers, Meijer, Vanaken, Vetlesen, Balanta, Skov Olsen, Thiago & Nusa

Westerlo

Westerlo were in fine form for their last league game at home to RWDM. Griffin Yow handed the home side an early lead and shortly after the hour mark, Nicolas Madsen converted a spot kick to make it 2-0. RWDM conceded an own goal eight minutes from time to wrap up a comfortable 3-0 victory for Westerlo.

Matija Frigan, Josimar Alcócer and Ilias El Hari are all doubts for the trip to Brugge due to injury.

Predicted Lineup: Bolat (GK), Reynolds, Bos, Tagir, Piedfort, Neustädter, Sydorchuk, Madsen, Yow, Van den Keybus & Vaesen

Player to Watch: Thiago

Club Brugge's Brazilian striker has been their star player in what has been a disappointing season so far.

The 22-year-old has netted eleven times in the Pro League alone, five of which have come from the penalty spot but he has also scored four times in the Belgian Cup and six times in the Conference League.

At this moment, the former Ludogorets striker is enjoying a rich vein of form that has produced thirteen goals in his last ten appearances in all competitions.
