Belgium Pro League Predictions

05/02/2023

Gent - Genk

With a difficult matchup ahead of them, Gent will need to focus if they want to bring in another 3 points. They are not overwhelmingly outmatched by any means, but they are generally seen as the underdogs compared to Genk.

The visiting team knows that beating Gent on their own turf will be a major accomplishment, and it is always a formidable challenge.

The hosts are hoping to make up some of the points they missed out on in the previous round. They were given a solid shot to w... read more

Antwerp - Club Brugge

Antwerp may come out on top this Sunday yet, but it will be quite a struggle. They’ll be fighting a somewhat stronger team in Club Brugge. However, it’s still a relatively balanced matchup, as signified by the 2.63 for the hosts to win.

The visiting team knows that beating Antwerp on their own turf will be a major accomplishment, and it is always a formidable challenge.

The hosts can feel pretty satisfied with their previous match. Antwerp had a difficult trip to survive in... read more

Union Saint-Gilloise - Zulte-Waregem

This is a fairly one-sided matchup in the hosts’ favour. While there may be a tiny chance of a draw or even an upset, we wouldn’t count on it. Union Saint-Gilloise winning is by far the most likely outcome.

From the present standpoint, the situation is obvious. Given the strength of Union Saint-Gilloise and the 8.00 odds given to Zulte-Waregem to win, it is clear that anything but a home win would be an unexpected upset.

Most experts agreed that Union Saint-Gilloise had a s... read more

Mechelen - Sporting Charleroi

With the odds slightly in the hosts’ favour, they have a decent shot at walking away with 3 points. Still, Sporting Charleroi can pull off both a win or a draw, so the hosts can’t afford to let their guard down.

The 3.10 away win betting odds indicate that Sporting Charleroi are the underdogs of this matchup. The difference is not huge, though, so both a victory for the visitors and are draw are still on the table.

Mechelen will want to forget their previous Pro League mat... read more

AS Eupen - Westerlo

The visitors are aware of the challenge that awaits them. To come out on top against AS Eupen on their own field would be a major achievement, and it is always a tough task.

While Westerlo may manage to claw their way to a win yet, it will be quite a struggle. As we can see thanks to the 2.55 betting odds for an away win, the odds are stacked against them – though it’s still manageable.

Playing at home was certainly additional motivation for AS Eupen who managed to earn an ... read more

RFC Seraing - OH Leuven

The hosts will have little to hope for in this match. The betting odds work against them and so does the overall impression. They are a weaker side here and it would be a proper upset if they manage to beat OH Leuven.

With a price of 2.10 on them winning, OH Leuven should definitely feel more confident going into this match. Of course, the difference is not insurmountable, so we’d say a draw is quite likely as well.

Although RFC Seraing are coming on the back of a harsh 4:0 l... read more

Cercle Brugge - Standard Liège

Predicting which side will win this match based on odds alone is a complete toss-up. We would say the hosts have a bit of an advantage, but their success is by no means assured.

The visitors are fully aware of the challenge that lies ahead. A win against Cercle Brugge on their home field would be a significant achievement, and it is never an easy task.

Home supporters will be hoping their team will notch two home wins on the trot after their Gent win from the previous round. On... read more

Sint-Truiden - Kortrijk

The odds are definitely leaning in the hosts’ favour, but this match is far from a done deal. Judging by odds alone, Kortrijk may yet be able to walk away with a draw or even a surprise victory – though it’s still a longshot.

The odds are stacked heavily against Kortrijk here, and we can’t see them winning this match. Sint-Truiden are heavily favoured by most betting predictions – so much so that an away bet is priced at around 4.60.

In a surprising turn of events, S... read more

KV Oostende - Anderlecht

KV Oostende managing to pull off a victory here would be quite the upset. They are definitely underdogs, so even the home-field advantage isn’t able to push the odds lower than 3.80 for a home win.

Anderlecht will have to maintain the high level of focus against KV Oostende. They can’t afford any mistakes and errors if they plan to run away home with three points in the bag.

Sporting Charleroi - Mechelen

Though Sporting Charleroi are the favourites between these two teams, this is a fairly balanced matchup. All three possible outcomes of a Result bet are quite possible, which at least means we may get to see an exciting game.

Mechelen are coming into this match as underdogs, though the difference is not overwhelming. Even so, they’re not all that likely to win. An Away Win bet is priced at 3.20 with top online bookies, which could bring a decent profit.

With a difficult matchup ahead of them, Standard Liège will need to focus if they want to bring in another 3 points. They are not overwhelmingly outmatched by any means, but they are generally seen as the underdogs compared to Anderlecht.

Anderlecht will need to bring their top form if they want 3 points from this matchup – and they do. Standard Liège are not easy pickings, although the visitors are widely seen as close favourites.

Sporting Charleroi - Westerlo

Sporting Charleroi are expected to win here, but we can’t call such betting predictions completely foolproof. Westerlo may surprise us yet, and even a tie game seems a decent possibility from where we’re standing.

While Westerlo may manage to claw their way to a win yet, it will be quite a struggle. As we can see thanks to the 3.30 betting odds for an away win, the odds are stacked against them – though it’s still manageable.

Genk - Cercle Brugge

It’s easy to point out Genk as the clear favourites, but we wouldn’t call this match completely one-sided. The hosts are definitely more likely to win between the two, but a tie game is another possibility. An away win would be quite a surprise, but we’ve seen bigger upsets.

The situation is crystal clear from the current perspective. Given the strength of the home team and the fact Cercle Brugge are given 5.50 betting odds to win, a conclusion is not difficult to reach. Anythin... read more

Genk - AS Eupen

Most fans are expecting nothing short of a decisive victory for Genk. Though an upset is not impossible, it’s extremely unlikely that this match will end in anything that’s not a home win.

Considering what they’re up against, AS Eupen can’t set their ambitions too high in this match. Playing as visitors at odds of 8.00 for an away win, calling them underdogs seems like an understatement.

Kortrijk may come out on top this Saturday yet, but it will be quite a struggle. They’ll be fighting a somewhat stronger team in Sint-Truiden. However, it’s still a relatively balanced matchup, as signified by the 3.25 for the hosts to win.

Despite playing away, Sint-Truiden are more likely to win this showdown than the hosts. It’s not a done deal, of course. Considering the betting odds for an away win are set at 2.40, we’re in for a close game.

Sporting Charleroi - KV Oostende

Sporting Charleroi are firm favourites in this matchup, and backing them may offer surprising betting value. It’s a very safe bet, though we suppose an upset is not outside the realm of possibility. We wouldn’t count on KV Oostende winning, though.

If betting odds are anything to go on – and they are - KV Oostende will likely get overrun by their opponents with little hope of winning. Considering how one-sided this matchup is, they may want to cut their losses and focus their e... read more

Mechelen will have to fight an uphill battle to win this match. They are the underdogs of the matchup – though Union Saint-Gilloise don’t have a huge advantage. Still, with the 3.45 odds on a home win, things may get a bit dicey.

Though Union Saint-Gilloise are the stronger team between the two, we wouldn’t call an away bet at the odds of 2.15 a safe one. It’s shaping up to be quite an exciting match.

Belgian First Division A History and General Info

This league is the top-level competition for professional football clubs in Belgium. The first-ever season for was held way back in 1895/96, making Division A one of the longest-standing pro football leagues in the world. It was created by the Royal Belgian Football Association, which later went on to be one of the founding members of both FIFA and UEFA. As of the writing of this article, UEFA’s coefficient ranking system places it as the eighth-best national league in Europe, based on performances in the last five years.

The name is a bit of a mouthful, and it was only recently accepted in place of the Belgian Pro League, by which it was known before the 2015-2016 season. However, the Leuven-based beer brewing company AB InBev has been the main sponsor of the competition for quite some time now. As such, the league is currently officially known as the Jupiler Pro League, in honour of InBev’s Jupiler beer brand.

The league consists of 16 best football clubs in Belgium. These then play against each other, with each team hosting every other team once as the season progresses, running from July to early May. This regular season follows a familiar format, where a win earns a team 3 points and a draw earns 1. The teams are then ranked by total points, then by total wins and finally by goal difference, number of scored goals, number of away goals and number of away wins. If after all of this two teams are still equal on the scoreboard, a test-match is played in two legs to determine the final order in the standings.

The league system in Belgium also follows the promotion/relegation system. This means that, with the current rules, the 16th-placed team is automatically relegated to the lower-tier league – the Belgian First Division B. Conversely, the best team from the Division B is promoted to take its place.

This system went through a lot of changes, some of which happened as recently as 2016. For example, a playoff portion was added then to decide the final outcome of each season. It works as follows: the top 6 teams from the regular season enter the championship playoff. The teams then play each other twice and earn points and are ranked in the same way as during the regular season, except that the teams start with half of the points they previously earned, rounded up.

The first-placed team is, of course, named Belgium’s champion. The champion and the runner-up qualify for the 3rd UEFA Champions League qualifying round. Teams ranked 7-15 are placed in a different set of playoffs, which are used to determine qualifications for the Europa League.

Traditionally, Brugge and Anderlecht are seen as the dominant teams of the league, considering they have the most titles won; followed by Standard Liège, Gent and Genk – who were also champions in the 2018/19 season. An important thing to consider for the Belgian First Division A league betting is that this is not one of those leagues where the title always goes to one of two teams – it’s a bit more exciting than that.

Erwin Vandenbergh is seen as the league’s all-time top scorer and is the only player ever to have managed to get the top scorer title four consecutive times. In fact, he snagged the title 10 times in total during his active years in the 70s and 80s. Besides him, Victor Wegria and Josip Weber were also named top scorers 3 consecutive times each, with Wegria managing a fourth title some time later.

Since the title was only introduced in 1945, however, the person who actually scored the most goals is Bert De Cleyn with a whopping 350 goals between 1932 and 1954 with KV Mechelen.


Belgian First Division A Derby Matches

Flemish Derby

This derby is a manifestation of the well-known rivalry between Anderlecht and Club Brugge. Historically, this match-up has been known to be definitive in determining who will bear that year’s title. Both teams have very passionate fans, which makes these games intense and sometimes controversial.

Derby of Belgium

A classic derby between Anderlecht and Standard Liège, this match-up has often been described as the Belgian “Classico”. Not only does it reflect the traditional rivalry between the cities of Brussels and Liège, but also a certain class struggle: Anderlecht is usually perceived as the team of the bourgeois elite while the Standard is seen as the worker’s club. Standard’s fans are known to be particularly unruly, however, and it is not uncommon for this event to erupt in violence.

Belgian First Division A Best Stadiums

Jan Breydel Stadium

Located in Bruges, this multi-purpose stadium is the home of Club Brugge and Cercle Brugge. It was built in 1975 and boasts a capacity of around 29,000. It bears the name of a famous Belgian historical figure, and is mostly used exclusively for football matches.

Lotto Park

Up until this year, this stadium was called the Constant Vanden Stock Stadium, after the sponsor. It is Anderlecht’s home turf, and one of the biggest sports arenas in the country with a capacity of 22,500, although there are plans for expansion.

Stade Maurice Dufrasne

The home ground of Standard Liège, this stadium holds some 27,000 – odd spectators. It is also known as Stade de Sclessin, from the name of the district of Liège where it is located.
