Sint-Truidense vs Cercle Brugge prediction
The season is going in a good direction for St Truiden and they can already be satisfied with the things done so far. Moreover, since the restart of the season in January, they have three victories in the last four rounds and do look quite confident in the field.
Most recently, it was a 5:2 home win over Eupen, as Asamoah was a star of the game with three goals, while Konate and Durkin added one each. They looked deadly effective with the chances created and with that in mind, the guests had no real chance.
Sint-Truidense team news
First choice goalkeeper Schmidt (20/0) is doubtful for this one. Also, questionable performances are defender Garcia Tena (18/1) and forward De Ridder (10/0) all three missing from December. Midfielder Asamoah (24/4) is suspended.
After a run of four consecutive losses in Jupiler, Cercle Brugge finally responded with a better and more combative performance in a 3:2 win over Mechelen. They entered the game much better, having the double lead already after six minutes thanks to Eppel and Hotic.
However, their visitors reduced in the tenth minute, trying to reach the equalizer with more of the ball possession. They got it in the 82nd minute, but the hosts responded with a goal in the second minute of added time.
They continue to be at the rock bottom position with six points less than second from the bottom Beveren and will need huge further improvement.
Cercle Brugge team news
The guests have central back Dabila (18/1) suspended. Injured are a team captain and central defender Taravel (10/0) and offensive Saadi (16/3). Neither defensive midfielder Deuro (1/0) is likely to appear.
Go with the logics
St Truiden is looking really fine in recent weeks and it's kinda a shame that they probably won't be able to get more competitive into the battle for the playoff spots. Cercle Brugge did improve slightly and have taken the victory last time out, but they remain too unimpressive at the back.
If St Truiden shows anything close to what they were showing lately, it should be hosts victory here. Easier than what the odds suggest.
