Club Brugge vs Charleroi Prediction and Betting Preview, 08 Aug 2020

The Match Is Over. Score: 0-1
Tearing through the Jupiler Pro League last term, Club Brugge finished top of the standings, a whopping 15 points clear of second-placed Gent. Blauw-Zwart played so impressively, yielding positive results week in week out.
Match status: 2020/21 Jupiler League - Round 1
Venue: Jan Breydel Stadion (Brugge)
Starting their season on the front foot, they always looked likely to seal the league title, knocking former champions Gent off their perch in unbelievable fashion. Taking part in 29 fixtures, Club Brugge admitted defeat just once all through, and were held to a draw on seven occasions.

Having amassed a whopping 70 points from 29 games, Club Brugge made light work of the Belgian League, leaving their rivals grasping for straws. With their 16th league title in the bag, Clement’s charges continue to close-in on Anderlecht – the most successful side in the league with 34 league honors.

With a new league campaign about to take off, the Blue-Black will be determined to fend off challenges from the likes of Anderlecht, Genk and co., to defend their title. For this, they will surely be itching to get their season off to a flyer, starting with victory over Charleroi on Saturday evening.

Club Brugge vs Charleroi Team News

Without a doubt, Club Brugge were the cream of the crop in the Jupiler Pro League last season, proving to be streets ahead of every other side in the cluster. Churning out positive results on a regular basis, they strolled to league success, beating archrivals Gent to the title.

However, for all their exploits in the domestic league, Blauw-Zwart were a shadow of themselves in every other competition they partook in. Thrown in the hat to compete in Group A of the CL with the likes of PSG, Real Madrid and Galatasaray; Brugge stood little chances of advancing to the knockouts.

Even though they were huge underdogs to survive the group, nobody expected Clement’s men to be sent crashing out of the competition as badly as it turned out. They failed to secure a single victory, picking up a measly three points from six games.

Ultimately, Club Brugge were demoted to the Europa League, where they were hammered 6-1 by Manchester United in the Round-of-32 phases. They may have breezed through the domestic league, but the fans will be disappointed with their performances in Europe.

Surely, they will be clamoring for something better from their club this time around, while hoping to defend the league title as well. With this, it goes without saying that the bar has been risen a little higher for Club Brugge, and they will be determined to not let their supporters down come season end.

Meanwhile, Charleroi had a decent run-in in the Pro League last term, finishing third on the standings to book a ticket to next season’s edition of the Europa League. For a serial mid-table side, this achievement was greeted with cheers from fans and the media alike.

With the new season kicking off this weekend, Les Zebres will be looking to build on from their displays the previous season, perhaps challenging for the league title this time around. For this, the players will have to get their wits about them, and remain in tip-top condition.

Club Brugge vs Charleroi Predictions

The hosts ended the previous season on a high, winning each of their last four games on the bounce, including a hard-fought 2-1 victory over Cercle Brugge. If Clement and his boys manage to carry that form into this fixture, they should be celebrating victory at the sound of the final whistle. From all indications, a ‘home win to nil’ seems a great bet.
