Club Brugge take on the visitors Lokeren at the Jan Breydel Stadium in the 7th tour of the Belgian First Division A. The match will be played in Bruges on Friday, September 14th.
Club Brugge are on the first place in the Belgian First Division A at the moment. However, their closest pursuers in the table are not that far from them. Genk are behind with only two points away from the Blauw-Zwert, Anderlecht are three points away so the team of Ivan Leko has no time to relax. Club Brugge have set the goal to compete for the gold in their local league once again this season because the chances of them showing good performances in the group stage of the 2018/2019 UEFA Champions League are low. It`s worth noting that the team often shows great performances in front of their home crowd, they have won all of their three home matches this season with an overall 10-3 goal difference. Only Anderlecht were able to lose to Club Brugge with less than two goals handicap (1-2 score). In their last three matches Club the Blauw-Zwert beat Zulte-Waregem with a 5-2 score, Anderlecht with a 2-1 score and drew against Antwerp with a 1-1 score.

Last tour Lokeren were able to pick their first victory in the new season of the Belgian First Division A over Waasland-Beveren with a 1-0 score. However, that victory meant almost nothing because Waasland-Beveren were in the end of the table with only few points to their credit anyway. The Tricolores often look weak on the away side. For example, both Gent and Cercle Brugge have been able to beat the team of Peter Maes in front of their home crowd and Saint Truiden have gotten a draw out of their home match against Lokeren this season even though they have looked a lot better than their opponents. In their last three matches Lokeren beat Excelsior with a 1-0 score, Waasland-Beveren with the same 1-0 score and lost to Gent with a 1-2 score.
It is likely that Club Brugge will not have any problems with Lokeren in the upcoming fixture because the level difference between the teams is quite big. The Tricolores have not achieved their teamwork yet so it will be very hard for them to play against Club Brugge. Furthermore, in their last four matches between themat the Jan Breydel Stadium the Blauw-Zwert won all of them. Club Brugge just can not lose any points in the upcoming fixtures.
Prediction for the match: Club Brugge to win with -1.5 handicap.
