Club Brugge are well off the pace in terms of the title race but still can't afford to drop any points on Sunday when they make the trip to Genk. The hosts sit two points behind Club Brugge as things stand so could move into the top three with a win this weekend.

Player to watch – Thiago

Club Brugge forward Thiago will move to Premier League side Brentford in the summer after impressing in Belgium

The Brazilian striker has scored 16 goals in the league for Club Brugge so far this season, six of which have arrived in the form of penalties. The 22-year-old only moved to Belgian in the summer after an impressive breakthrough season with Bulgarian side Ludogorets.

Club Brugge's top scorer returns this weekend

We're backing Thiago to cause the Genk defence plenty of issues this weekend but we're not sure that it will be enough to stop the home side from winning.
