In what is a real battle at the top of the Belgium Jupiler Pro table in midweek, Club Brugge will host Royale Union SG on Thursday night.

Starting with the hosts, while Club Brugge might have eventually managed to leave a struggle St. Liege with an action-packed 2-2 draw last weekend, the Belgium giants were left disappointed on the road. Although Alfred Schreuder’s men might still find themselves holding a commanding nine-point buffer at the top of the table, the Champions League outfit have won just a pair of their last five top-flight contests. However, looking to lay down what could turn out to be a crucial marker on Thursday night, Brugge should at least be boosted by their continued success on home soil. Including a thumping 4-1 win against Leuven when signing off 2021, the former Barcelona coach has seen his side muster 13 points from their last five showdowns at the Jan Breydel Stadium.

As for the visitors, making their top-flight return last season, there is no doubt that Royale Union SG have once again shocked many across Belgium this time around. Last seen claiming a 2-1 win against Genk on home soil, Felice Mazzù’s men are sat second in the table and cruising towards a stunning European finish. In fact, Les Unionistes’ are now in the midst of an eight-match unbeaten run thet stems back to the end of November, winning seven of those outings. Looking to cause what would be a real upset when they travel to the Jan Breydel Stadium here, Royale Union have continued to shine with their displays in the final third. Playing out a five-goal thriller when they last made the trip to Brugge back in 2019, we’re backing what should be another lively affair in midweek.
