In the last 3 home games for all competitions there is 1 period that stands out: he scored 3 of his 8 goals between minutes (76 ‘ -90 ‘).
Cercle Brugge is doing a relatively positive campaign, but has room for improvement. If you have more consistency from one game to another, there will be a greater chance of winning positions. As he will play at home on this day, he has to affirm the favoritism and add the three points. If you play calmly, being determined and efficient, you tend to win without going through trouble.

In their last match, they lost to AS Eupen at home by (0‑2), after losing away in the previous match, in a match against KV Oostende, by (3‑0). This is a team that curiously tends to achieve more positive results as a visitor than at home, since in the last 30 games they have recorded 4 wins, 4 draws and 7 losses as a visitor, with 15 goals scored and 23 suffered; against 3 victories, 3 draws and 9 defeats in his stadium, with 15 goals scored and 21 suffered.

For this competition, they have not won any of the last 9 matches. The team has not been very strong defensively, since they have always suffered goals in the last 9 matches they played in this competition. This is a team that rarely scores first. In fact, he never opened the scoring in the last 9 games for the Pro League. In 9 games in this tournament, he suffered the first goal 9 times and never got the comeback. In the last 5 home matches for all competitions there are 2 periods that stand out: they have conceded 3 of their 8 goals between minutes (76’ ‑ 90 ‘) and 3 of their 8 goals between (46′ ‑ 60’).
Mouscron is having a very bad campaign and to say it is not an exaggeration or much less disrespect for the team. It turns out that it is the only team that has not won in the competition and is in the relegation zone. There is not much to say, because you need to evolve a lot if you want to avoid the division decline. It’s all or nothing for visitors, so they’ll have to work hard to have any chance of wowing.
