Oostende take on the visitors Club Brugge KV at “Versluys Arena” in the matchday nine of the Championship Group of the Jupiler League. The game will be played in Ostend on Thursday, May 18th.
Oostende follow up their battle, however, they fight not for the Jupiler League medals, but for the place in the UEFA Europa League next season. Last round Oostende were defeated on the road by Zulte Waregem with 1:3 scoreline and dropped to the fifth position in the table with 34 points earned being four points behind the third place with two gameweeks left by the end of the season. Oostende show inconsistent result in the second part of the season: the side recorded three victories, four draws and three losses in 10 recent home clashes.

Club Brugge KV refused to lose in four consecutive encounters. Nevertheless, the side practically gave up the champion’s title to its rivals after 1:1 draw against Anderlecht last weekend. With two rounds left by the end of the season Club Brugge KV occupy the second position in the table with 42 points taken being four points below the leader. Michel Preud’homme’s side demonstrates poor performance on the road: in 2017 the team got four wins, one draw and five defeats in 10 matches at away fields.
Historically, Club Brugge KVshow successful results against Oostende, however, this season they demonstrate disappointing football on the road. I believe that the forthcoming fight will be exciting as both teams still have tournament targets left in this season.
Prediction for the match: Under 3.0 scored goals.
