Westerlo vs Cercle Brugge – Free Betting Tips & Predictions

Westerlo start their First Division A season with a tough test at home to Cercle Brugge on Sunday. Read our top predictions for this weekend’s fixture below.

Over 2.5 Goals

Westerlo are back in the First Division A for the first time since 2017 and their run to promotion from the second tier last term featured a high number of exciting matches, particularly at Het Kuipje. Seven of their last ten matches at the venue produced over 2.5 goals and their pursuit of a fast start in front of an expectant crowd on Sunday promises to deliver more fireworks against Cercle Brugge. With those factors acknowledged, we recommend another stake on over 2.5 goals.

Both Teams to Score

Cercle Brugge carried plenty of threat as the visiting team last season and a string of impressive results on the road was accompanied by an excellent strike rate. Indeed, Cercle notched in all but one of their 17 away assignments over the course of the campaign, so bettors should expect them to hit the net on Sunday. Westerlo are no mugs in the final third themselves however, and having registered in 11 of their last 12 matches at home, they will fancy their chances of getting on the scoresheet again. As a consequence, a wager on BTTS is advised here.
