Reason For Waasland-Beveren vs Club Brugge Betting Tips
Waasland-Beveren currently sit bottom of the table and their task gets no easier here this week when taking on the league’s 2nd placed side. Confidence is at an all time low after suffering 4 consecutive defeats and with 3rd and 4th placed Antwerp and Anderlecht to play in the next 3 weeks they are in trouble and in desperate need of points.
Club Brugge find themselves second in the Belgium First Division A table after amassing 34 points from their 17 league games. They find themselves 4 points off league leaders Genk thanks to their poor run of form. They put that right last time out beating a good Standard Liege side 3-0 at home and they will be looking to build on that here.
Waasland-Beveren are winless at home this season, however they have only lost 3 games at the Freethielstadion thanks to picking up 5 draws. All those losses however have come in their last 3 home league games. They lost to Antwerp (3rd) Anderlecht (4th) and then Mouscron (14th) last time out at home. The games have been close, losing by a single goal in all those games and scoring in two of the three.
Club Brugge’s away form is the reason they are second in the league and not top of the table. They have picked up 12 points from their 8 away games after 3 wins, 3 draws and 2 losses sees them placed as the 5th best side on the road in the league this campaign. They are winless in 4 away games in the league with losses to Standard Liege and Charleroi last time out which came either side of 2 draws against Sint-Truiden and league leaders Genk.
Waasland-Beveren’s scoring form is not too bad considering their league position, whilst they only average 0.75 goals per game at home they have scored in 5/8 games this season and have played some tough opposition at the Freethielstadion so far. They have netted in 4 of their last 5 home league games against Charleroi (6th), Oostende (12th), Anderlecht (4th) and Mouscron (14th). The only one they failed to score in, a 1-0 defeat to Antwerp, who have the best defence on the road this season.
Club Brugge have scored 16 goals away from home this season averaging 2.00 per game. They have found the net in every league game this season, meaning the problem has been their defence. Away from home they concede 1.38 goals per game compared to just 0.89 per game at home.
Club Brugge are a crazy short price considering they haven’t won on the road in over a month, opening up the value in other areas. We really like the look of Both Teams to Score here, as aforementioned, Waasland-Beveren have been finding the net recently and Club Brugge’s defence has been a massive problem. We do think Club Brugge will get the job done but like Waasland-Beveren’s previous 3 home games, we only see it by a solitary goal. We are backing Club Brugge to win 2-1 on the Correct Score Market.
Head to Head
There have been 3 Club Brugge wins, 1 Waasland-Beveren win and 2 draws in the last 6 head to head meetings.
