Our prediction for this Belgium Pro League match:
Cercle Brugge and Mechelen take on each other at Jan Breydel Stadion in what is expected to be one of the most exciting games of Saturday’s program. Cercle Brugge aim to bounce back from a 3-0 loss to St. Truiden, and you should bear in mind that they are after their first home win since October 17, 2020. The Groen en Zwart are on an eight-game losing run at home in the Jupiler League, and, no doubt, they are eager to give fans something to cheer about.
The likes of Taravel, Van Damme, Velkovski, Kanoute, and Decostere are all likely to miss the game with injuries. Mechelen, on the other hand, have been in a fine form of late, with the team beating both Eupen and Waasland-Beveren, while sharing the spoils with Genk. Given Cercle Brugge’s shaky defence, we believe that away win should be considered. Mechelen right-back Walsh has joined the likes of Bateau, Engvall, and Storm in the recovery room.
