Club Brugge finished the season on a high note, and is now on the verge of securing a European cup spot if they can only defeat Zulte Waregem. They seem to be much better in the playoffs than they were in the regular season and are just a few points away from a Champions League placement.
Match: Club Brugge vs Zulte Waregem
Bet: Club Brugge
Odds: BlueSquare 1.83
Traditionally a very competitive team, second only to Anderlecht, Club Brugge sank into near irrelevance at the beginning of the season. Fortunately for the club and it fans, the team rebounded in the second half and now earned four points in the playoffs. Home pitch advantage is what they need to capitalize on against an opponent who lacks experience at this high level and is yet to make an European appearance.
The head to head record is extraordinary, with Club Brugge winning eight times at home and only losing once in nine games. The rare defeat happened five months ago, but back then the home team was plagued by injuries and in the midst of a lengthy losing streak. Zulte Waregem could exceed all expectations by finishing the season on a spot that makes them eligible for the Champions League, although their chances are rather slim. The team succumbed to pressure and is yet to win a game in the playoffs, so they would be more than happy to leave Bruges with a single point.
Club Brugge has high expectations and huge untapped potential, but in order to play in a European competition next season they need to best Zulte Waregem. BlueSquare values a home win victory at 1.83, with the odds being decent enough to justify a wager.
