Oostende
Oostende
LLLLLL 🚑

Oostende will be wanting a better result here following a 0-3 First Division A defeat in their last game at the hands of Antwerp.

In that game, Oostende managed 54% possession and 16 shots on goal with 3 of them on target. On the other side, Royal Antwerp had 12 attempts on goal with 6 of them on target. Arbnor Muja (11'), Vincent Janssen (21') and Bruny Nsimba (88') scored for Antwerp.

Their more recent scorelines highlight the fact that quality has been lacking in the Oostende defence. Oostende have seen an embarrassing 18 goals go past their goalkeeper during the period covering their last 6 games. That sort of pattern might not follow through into this match, of course.

Taking a look at their past results, Oostende:

  • haven't been beaten in the league by Cercle Brugge in their last 11 matches. A decent run, indeed.
  • haven’t won at home in the past 2 league matches.

In their previous fixture, Cercle Brugge drew 1-1 in the First Division A match with Union Saint-Gilloise.

In that match, Cercle Brugge managed 35% possession and 6 attempts at goal with 1 on target. The only player to score for Cercle Brugge was Thibo Somers (68'). Union Saint-Gilloise got 15 shots at goal with 7 on target. Gustaf Nilsson (82') scored for Union Saint-Gilloise.

The numbers tell their own story, and Cercle Brugge have been scored against in 5 of their last 6 games, with opponents netting 7 goals in total. In defence, Cercle Brugge have some weaknesses to address.

A look at their previous results shows us that Cercle Brugge:

  • have not beaten Oostende in away games against them for the last 6 league games. They'll be keen to stop this run.
  • have not won away from home in their last 2 league matches.
