Our prediction for this Belgium Pro League match:
Club Brugge will look to put an extra pressure on league leaders Royale Union SG when they host Mechelen to their Jan Breydel Stadion in the last game of the regular season. The reigning champions look unstoppable at the moment, with the team eyeing their eighth consecutive league win, but they will have to prove their worth on the field.
De Kakkers, on the other hand, aim to build on a 3-2 win over Kortrijk. Mechelen have already booked their place in the Conference League Group, which is yet another reason why home win should be considered. There are no fresh injury worries in the away team, while all Shved, Oum Gouet, and Engvall are pushing for a start. As for the home team, head coach Alfred Schreuder should have a full squad to choose from.
Highlighted Player (Simon Mignolet):
Simon Luc Hildebert Mignolet is a Belgium goalkeeper born on 6 March 1988 in Sint-Truiden. He began his career in a club from his hometown, making 100 league appearances for Sint-Truidense before moving to Sunderland in 2010.
Mignolet would go on to spent next four years at the Stadium of Light, making 90 Premier League appearances. As one of world’s most talented goalkeepers, the Belgium international signed for Liverpool in the summer of 2013, and he has since been the club’s first choice goalkeeper. Performing admirably most of the time, but also committing cheap mistakes at times, Mignolet has yet to win over the Liverpool fans, but remains highly regarded in his native country.
The talented shot-stopper has been a member of the Belgium national team since 2011, earning over 20 caps for the Red Devils, but he has been playing second fiddle to Chelsea star Thibaut Courtois over the last few years.
