Hannes Delcroix (Knee Surgery) and Hendrik Van Crombrugge (Back Injury) won’t be available for Anderlecht gaffer Vincent Kompany.
Team News: Club Brugge
Due to a mostly healthy group, there’s just the one fitness worry for the Club Brugge boss Philippe Clement to be concerned with. Noa Lang (Thigh Problems) won’t be playing here.
We believe that RSC Anderlecht will have to play well to see themselves scoring against this Club Brugge side who should score at least once to put them ahead.
We therefore think that it’s going to be a very even contest with a 0-1 winning score for Club Brugge when all is said and done.
It should be a good one.
