Our prediction for this Belgium Pro League match:
Antwerp and Cercle Brugge go head to head at Bosuilstadion in what is expected to be one of the most interesting games of Sunday’s program. Antwerp quickly bounced back from a 1-0 loss to Charleroi, with the team beating Waregem 2-0, and, no doubt, the triumph gave them a confidence boost. There are no fresh injury worries in the home team, but midfielder Jurgen Ekkelenkamp remains in the recovery room.
Experienced forward Vincent Janssen is a major doubt. The visitors, on the other hand, proved their worth in a 2-0 win over Kortrijk, but beating Antwerp on the road is easier said than done. A close encounter is on the cards, and we believe that punters from all around the world can find value in betting on draw. Midfielder Olivier Deman is banned for the match, while defender Senna Miangue misses out with a muscle problem.
Highlighted Team (Antwerp):
Founded back in 1880, Antwerp is one of the oldest clubs in Belgium. The Great Old welcome their rivals at Bosuilstadion, the venue with the capacity of 16,144 people. Antwerp are well known for their red home kits, with the team wearing white shirts and white jerseys when playing on the travels.
Over the years Antwerp have been trying to close the gap between Belgian giants Anderlecht and Club Brugge, but they have yet to win the title in the recent history. The Great Old clinched their first domestic trophy back in 1929, with the team repeating the success two years later. The third and the fourth titles came in 1944 and 1957 respectively.
Beerschot A.C. are considered the club’s fiercest rivals, but they have a rivalry with Club Brugge as well. The club chiefs had a long-term partnership with famous English club Manchester United in the past, with Antwerp taking young footballers on loan to Old Trafford.
