Antwerp – Club Brugge

Antwerp hosts Club Brugge in a match from the 22th round of the Belgian First Division A.

Antwerp are currently 4th in the First Division A standings, having won 34 points so far. They have a record of 9 wins, 7 draws and 5 losses. Antwerp won three of their last five matches in the league, losing only against Lokeren at home.

Their main goal is a finish in the Top 6, which would grant them a parcitipation in the Championship round of the league. It’s safe to say that Antwerp have already reached their goal.

Meanwhile Club Brugge are leaders in the First Division A. They have 53 points and a record of 17 wins, 2 draws and 2 losses. Right now Club Brugge are in a run of four consecutive wins in the league, which proves that they are the best team in the league and a number one contender for the title.

Right now Club Brugge have 8 points advantage in front of the 2nd Sporting Charleroi, so the ycan be calm about their current situation in the league. In the last round of the First Division A Club Brugge celebrated a 4-2 win against Royal Excel Mouscron at home.

The Malian striker Abdoulay Diaby is Club Brugge’s main goalscorer this season. The 26-years olf African have scored 9 goals for the team since the start of the new season. Most surely the leaders will rely on him in this next game as well.

Antwerp really heavily on another striker from Africa – the Ghanian William Owusu, who have scored 6 goals since the start of the season. It’d be interesting to see the duel between these two African strikers in this clash.

Club Brugge are the favourite here, but we shall be careful with Antwerp being the home team here.
