Sporting Charleroi vs Club Brugge team news

Charleroi

Sporting Charleroi made the trip to Antwerp last weekend but probably wish they had just stayed at home. The hosts were four goals to the good before Antoine Bernier pulled a goal back for Charleroi with five minutes of the ninety remaining. That defeat leaves Charleroi sitting fifth from bottom with just twenty-one points from twenty-one matches.

Goalkeeper Hervé Kouakou Koffi is at the Africa Cup of Nations, while Stefan Knezevic is a doubt for the Club Brugge game due to an injury.

Predicted Lineup: Patron (GK), Dragsnes, Van Cleemput, Andreou, Boukamir, Ilaimaharitra, Rogelj, Zorgane, Guiagon, Mbenza & Sylla

Club Brugge

Club Brugge made light work of Westerlo last time out, securing a 3-0 victory in which their top scorer helped himself to a brace. Thiago opened the scoring in the thirty-seventh minute and converted a spot kick in the sixty-fifth before Antonio Nusa added a third late on.

Joel Ordóñez, Romeo Vermant, Chemsdine Talbi and Josef Bursik could all miss the trip to Charleroi through injury.

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

Player to Watch: Thiago

There can only be one player to watch in this game and that is the in-form Thiago.

The Club Brugge striker can't stop scoring right now and while his total of thirteen league goals isn't that spectacular, the fact that he has scored fifteen goals in his last ten appearances across all competitions is.

We're backing Thiago to impress in front of goal once again this weekend when Club Brugge make the trip to struggling Charleroi and would be surprised if the Brazilian didn't score in this game.
