Our prediction for this Belgium Pro League match:
Cercle Brugge play host to Oostende at their Jan Breydel Stadion on day 16 of the new Jupiler League campaign. Cercle Brugge are on a three-game losing run in the Belgian top flight, with the team struggling at the back of late. The hosts are eager to get back on course in the national championship, but this match will be anything but a walk in the park for Groen en Zwart’s troops.
Oostende aim to build on a 2-1 win over Gent, but you should bear in mind that they suffered a loss in each of their last three away games in the Jupiler League. Taking everything into account, a close encounter is on the cards at Jan Breydel Stadion, and we are tempted to put our money on draw. In their last meeting at the venue the two teams shared the spoils.
