Lokeren failed to qualify for eurocups last season despite impressive run at the end. During their preseason, the visitors played 8 friendly matches as they recorded 6 wins and 2 defeats with 14:6 goal difference. Lokeren earned 3 points in two starting matches of the Belgian league as they beat Westerlo (3:0) and lost to Sint-Truiden VV (0:1).
Brugge remained unbeaten in their last 12 matchups against Lokeren as they won 10 of them and recorded 2 draws. Last season, they played three times and hosts won all of them (1:0, 1:0 and 2:1). Brugge will play their first home game of the season and they surely will try to bounce back against Lokeren after loss to Oostende. We are sticking with Brugge.
Prediction for the match; Brugge to win with -1 handicap.
