Cercle Brugge vs Lokeren by Isaiah
The break of the league came in the right time for Cercle Brugge, as they were in terrible condition in the first six games with just one point collected so far, losing against Beveren to their last match.
It's important for them to keep calm from now on, as they experienced many great moments during the last season, and they see the other side of the coin to this one now. Tonight's match is crucial for them to be able and get out of the crisis. They may have been weakened in comparison with last season roster, but there is still some quality in their team, especially in their attacking line, and it is matter of time to start getting good results.
Main midfielder Kevin Janssens and main defender Gregory Mertens are both out, while their best player to their midfield line Tim Smolders is out injured. In contrast, main midfielder Hans Cornelis is back after injury. Cercle Brugge will be lined up with 4-3-3 with Rudy, Michael Uchebo and Bakenga Mushaga or Kristof D'Haene in front line.

Lokeren after two defeats away from Ghent (2-1) and Victoria Plzen (1-0 Europa League), was defeated for the third time in a row, this time at home, against Kortrijk with the score of 0-1, but could have won at least the point in this game, as the game was really balanced and missed a couple of opportunities to score.
Aside from the negative results, on the final day of transfers their squad received a severe blow as they lost their best striker, Benjamin De Ceulaer, who moved to Genk for three million euros. Anyway, there is still a lot of options to their attacking line, with some very good strikers for the league's standards. Lokeren is not facing any new problems as only substitute defender Hassan El Mouataz is missing. Lokeren will be lined up with 4-3-3, Hamdi Harbaoui, Ayanda Patosi and Nill de Pauw will play in front.
The match has is described as a final for Cercle Brugge, but they still have lot of defensive problems receiving 16 goals in 6 matches, while they miss again some important units for their defensive behavior. Lokeren should be presented better time by time, as after their European adventure they will be consecrated to the league, and they face no problems. Both of teams prefers attacking oriented football to all of their matches till now, something that i don't think will change tonight. Over 2.5 goals is offered to some great odds for the league standards, and i will go with the value.
