Club Brugge to Win
Reigning Belgian champions Club Brugge opened the 2021/21 campaign in style. They easily overcame Genk in the Super Cup and now turn their attention to the title defence. They have an easy task in the opening round against Eupen, who finished way behind in the points table in 12th place. Therefore, it is difficult to see past Club Brugge in the curtain-raiser and they should be able to claim the three points on offer.
Total Goals: Over 2.5
There were five goals in the Super Cup between Brugge and Genk. Genk took the lead but could not hold to it and succumbed eventually to a defeat. The high number of goals scored has been the trend in Brugge's preseason fixtures, one that should continue in their meeting with Genk. The last time these sides met also saw goals, a 3-0 result in December 2020.
Both Teams to Score: Yes
If one were to consider just the historical fixtures, they would arrive at the conclusion that only one side will hit the back of the net and that will be the Blauw-Zwart. That is an easy conclusion to arrive at but not plausible at the start of a campaign. There is always rustiness and lack of match fitness plays a part in unlikely goals. As Brugge host Eupen, this factor will be on display and we should see goals at either side of the pitch.
Club Brugge vs Eupen: Team News and Match Preview
On paper, it seems that the champions have their work cut out for themselves. They impressed in their 3-2 Super Cup win over Genk and should make little work of Eupen. Moreover, the confidence in the abilities of coaching duo Philippe Clement and De Mil Rik increases with every outing. For the fans, there is more as Bas Dost and Daniel Perez line up together for the Blauz-Zwart. The combination of experience and youth is exciting for everyone involved.
Stefan Kramer took over from Benat Sasn Jose. It was a strange decision as Kramer had been let go by his previous employers in April 2021. The decision seems to have back-fired as Eupen have struggled in their preseason outings and looked out of their depth even against teams with markedly lower quality. With six U22 players looking for midfield positions, it raises questions about the mix of youth and experience that the manager is hoping for.
