Total Goals: Over 2.5 Goals
This selection may seem contradictory when you look at the latest head-to-head games between these two teams. It is a fact that all recent matches ended with less than 3 goals but at the same time, when you see the teams' performances during the new season, there is no other option. For example, here are both teams' latest matches. Sporting Chaleroi – 2:3, 5:2, 2:2; Club Brugge – 3:0, 6:1, 3:2. Both teams have similar styles and good players that know how to score goals.
Total Bookings 1: Over 45 Points
If you are unaware of the essence of this particular market, here is an explanation. Each yellow card in the match equals 10 points while each red card equals 25 points. A single player can give you 35 points if he receives a yellow and then a red card. In this case, 45 points mean that there should either be 5 yellows or 3 yellow and 1 red card in the match.
But why is this line suitable for Sporting Charleroi vs Club Brugge? The Belgian league is known to be one of the “aggressive” leagues, which means that teams play rough and referees show plenty of cards. As a reference, here are the card counts for both teams' latest matches: Sporting Charleroi – 7, 8, 3; Club Brugge – 5,4,9.
It is important to mention that more than half of Brugge's games included at least one red card. Last but not least, the H2H games are also in our favor this time and Sporting Charleroi vs Club Brugges is often a “bloody” clash.
Total Corners – Over 9 Corners
Ten corners is a lot and this particular part of the game depends on too many factors. Yet, in the case of Sporting Charleroi and Club Brugges, it is a particularly suitable choice. Both teams score plenty of corners in all of their matches individually. Since we can expect a fast-paced game, there should be enough corners for each team to cover our line.
