Our prediction for this Belgium Pro League match:
Bosuilstadion will host Saturday’s Jupiler League game between Antwerp and Cercle Brugge, the two teams who sit in top ten ahead of the last game of the regular season. Antwerp aim to cement third place in the standings, and they should adopt an attack-minded approach against Cercle Brugge. Danish tactician Brian Priske is unlikely to make changes to the team that defeated Leuven at the weekend.
The Groen en Zwart, on the other hand, missed out on a place in the Conference League group, meaning that they have little to play for in Saturday’s showdown. Since Antwerp have been in a fine form of late, we predict that the visitors will return home empty-handed. Edgaras Utkus is back from suspension, while both Thomas Didillon and Miguel Van Damme remain in the recovery room through different reasons.

He continued with impressive performances in Italian Serie A and eventually snubbed a number of top European sides to join AS Roma in 2014.The central midfielder enjoyed a very good start to his career at Stadio Olimpico, while also establishing himself as a first team regular in the Belgian national team, helping the Red Devils climb to first place in FIFA Rankings and also qualify for the Euro 2016 finals.
