Club Brugge vs Standard Liege (By: MKFootball)
This weekend we have more than a fierce derby in Belgium facing the teams of Club Brugge and Standart Liege.Both teams are in a very fluctuating form moving from great to poor results either home or away.
No doubt, the team from Brugges is the more prepared and experienced team. In recent years, they have settled quite comfortably on the first place and became the main contender for the title.They are usually very strong at home, their best results and most of the points come from home.Club Brugge secured their third place in the Champions League and they will go directly to the finals in Europe League after the break.However, their last match in the league was devastating.They lost with 1-3 to Zulte Waregem which has absolutely nothing in common with their form in the previous season.After that, Brugges made a strategic 0-0 draw in Dortmund but anyway it was quite boring and they did not show anything impressive, so this is a great opportunity.To be precise, in recent years Brugge have become a nightmare for Standart Liege managing to beat them always at home in a high-scoring encounters.The most impressive result was in 2015 smashing Liege with 7-1.
Compared to Brugge, Standart Liege find them nowhere in the table.They are currently in the middle and cannot hold stability in their performance.Liege was busy as well, beating Sevilla on Thursday.I expect them to be tired for this derby, they have very important last game in Europe League if they want to progress.Liege will surely try not to lose because they need to be in top 6 but it may be a very hard task this weekend.Brugge have more time to recover and they are playing at home as well.
