Sporting Charleroi vs Club Brugge prediction, preview, team news and more

The Belgian Jupiler League returns with new fixtures as Sporting Charleroi host Club Brugge on Friday.

Both sides go into the weekend on a streak of back-to-back wins and we expect them to give it their all in the quest for all three points against each other.

Sporting Charleroi claimed two wins out of two last Sunday as they defeated Zulte Waregem 3-1 away.

That was followed by a 1-0 win over newly promoted RFC Seraing two weeks ago to end a two-game losing streak.

Sporting Charleroi next meet a side from Club Brugge who are unbeaten in 16 of the last 20 meetings between the teams, recording 11 wins and five draws.

Carl Hoefkens’ men threw their socks off last weekend as they clinched a 2-1 win over a strong Kortrijk side.

Club Brugge are now unbeaten in three games in a row and have recorded two wins and a draw since losing 2-1 at Eupen in July.

With 10 points from five games, the Blauw-Zwart are currently third in the Jupiler League standings, one point and two places ahead of Sporting Charleroi.
