OOSTENDE – CLUB BRUGGE 05.08.2016
The champion of Belgium Club Brugge is hitting the road once again, travelling to Oostende to face the local KV Oostende in a second round game of the Super Division A.
This is a second away game in a row for the champions, after they already managed to beat Mechelen in the first round. Jose Heriberto Izquierdo and Dion Cools scored the winning goals for the Blauw-Zwart, while Hans Vanaken managed to record his first assist for the season.
KV Oostende didn’t start well the new season in the Super Division A, after losing with 1-2 their visit to Genk. The zimbabwian striker Knowledge Musona scored KV Oostende’s first goal for this season, but it was not enough for his team to take at least a point from the game. Nikolaos Karelis and Mbwana Samatta’s goals added first three points for Genk, which is one of the teams to aim for the title this season in Super Division A.
The statistics are not very kind to KV Oostende before Club Brugge’s visit to Albertparkstadion. The two teams faced each other ten times so far and KV Oostende is still looking for its first win. In eight of these games Club Brugges took the win, while in two times the game ended with a draw. So, if you are a lover of the statistics, then you should consider that Club Brugges is the absolute favorite in this clash.
KV Oostende and Club Brugge faced each other four times last season, with the Blauw-Zwart taking the win in three of occasions and one of the games ending with a 2-2 draw.
The current champions are the clear favorite in this game. KV Oostende have the advantage to play in front of their own fans, but history is showing us that this fact is rarely helping them against this opponent.
