Club Brugge KV vs St. Liege Prediction & Betting tips
The summer break in Belgium is nearing its end. Before that, however, the Super Cup between champions FC Bruges and cup winners Standard Liège is scheduled for Sunday (22.07.), Which will be kicked off at 19:00 at the Jan Breydel Stadium. Brugge is certainly in the match to favor, which is reflected so clearly in the betting odds. However, the preparation of the blue-blacks was anything but perfect and with Liège comes a club, which could steal the champions last several times points and kept the upper hand in the last Cup semi-final. Both in the preparation of both teams as well as in the direct comparison it is noticeable that Both teams to score betting would have worked out with regularity. Therefore I recommend for a tip that both teams score at least one goal. Corresponding bets are offered by Comeon at the highest odds of 1.67.
FC Brugge secured their 15th overall title in the last season, though not quite as confident as expected after the main round. Because here Blauw-Zwart still had a lead of twelve points on Anderlecht (2nd) and 23 points on Liege (6). In the championship group Bruges but then dropped significantly and found himself in the form table with only three wins, three draws and four defeats in fourth place again. Only thanks to the competition rules, which let the future champion with a lead of twelve points on the later second start in the championship round, Bruges was able to secure the championship and thus also qualify for the Champions League (group stage).
The preparation for the new season was at most moderate success. After two distinct wins against unterklassige teams from the amateur sector, it was enough against Steaua Bucharest only to a 1-1 draw. It should be mentioned that the runner-up of Romania against Bruges completed the first test match and was still at the beginning of the preparation. Quite different, however, Hapoel Haifa, who like Blauw-Zwart already had some games in the legs. Here, the Belgians remained sovereign and finished the game 3-1. However, there was a setback in the last Test against relegated KV Mechelen, against which it was only a goalless draw last weekend.
Standard Liège barely missed the league and cup double last term. In the main round, Les Rouches was only on the sixth place on the final day of the game, just entitled to participate in the championship group. However, Liège became the strongest form in Belgium with a record of six wins, three draws and only one defeat and a goal difference of 20: 9. That it was not enough for the championship, was in the end only on the competitive handicap of twelve points. At a gap of three points standard but at least runner-up. It was enough in the cup for the big litter, because to Bruges in the semifinals and Ghent could be beaten in the final.
The preparation was anything but optimal. So it was enough for the first amateur club to a significant 5-2 victory. Against Waremme – also resident in an amateur league – then it was enough only to a 3: 3-draw, which is quite a disappointment to call. Then it went on internationally. But against AS Nancy and Celtic Glasgow it set the next setbacks. Thus, the Belgians lost against the French with 1: 2 and against the Scots even with 1: 4. Against second division AFC Tubize there was a small bright spot last weekend, because here Les Rouches at least a 1-0 win success.
