Belgium Pro League Predictions

14/08/2022

Sint-Truiden - Anderlecht

Sint-Truiden are no strangers to surprises but with 3.70 on home win here, such a result would be more of a miracle rather than surprise.

Most bookies see Anderlecht as the favourites in this matchup, though it’s important to know things can go either way. Their victory is currently priced at 2.05, indicating that the hosts have a fighting chance.

We last saw Sint-Truiden play against Kortrijk in a hard-fought away game. Pro League betting odds were quite optimistic about the... read more

AS Eupen - Antwerp

AS Eupen 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 4.00 for a home win.

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

The last round brought a very good result overall for AS Eupen. They took a difficult Pro League trip and man... read more

OH Leuven - Club Brugge

To call the upcoming match difficult for OH Leuven would be a major understatement. They are going up against impossible odds. With a home win priced at 5.00 with major online bookmakers, this is a completely one-sided game.

The most likely outcome of this match is Club Brugge walking away with three more points. That said, both a draw and a home win are still on the table, though both are relatively risky propositions.

Although OH Leuven are coming on the back of a harsh 4:2 ... read more

Zulte-Waregem - Genk

Zulte-Waregem are considerably weaker than their opponents in this round of the Pro League, and a victory for them would be quite a surprise. We wouldn’t bet on it, though – at odds of 4.33, it’s not very likely to happen.

We are likely going to see Genk triumph this Sunday, though Zulte-Waregem do have a fighting chance. Maybe the home field advantage will be enough to spur them into a surprise draw or victory, though it’s not a probable outcome.

Zulte-Waregem are com... read more

RFC Seraing - Sporting Charleroi

The 4.20 odds on a home win result mark the hosts as clear underdogs. Things are fairly lopsided, in fact, so backing such an outcome would be quite a longshot.

With a price of 1.95 on them winning, Sporting Charleroi 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.

RFC Seraing’s painful defeat in their previous away match could have been seen from a mile away. They wer... read more

Union Saint-Gilloise - Kortrijk

A home win should not be questioned in this game. Union Saint-Gilloise are seen as huge favourites to register an easy win against Kortrijk and we recommend you take the generous offer of 1.55.

With a price of 7.50 on an away win among most online sportsbooks, it’s clear Kortrijk will likely not fare well against Union Saint-Gilloise. Even a draw seems to be too optimistic for the away team.

While not an outright disaster, Union Saint-Gilloise’s performance in their previou... read more

Westerlo - Standard Liège

Westerlo have a big mountain to climb. The task ahead is difficult but not impossible but with 2.75 slapped on home win in this match, this one is for the risk-takers.

The 3.50 away win betting odds indicate that Standard Liège 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.

Westerlo are coming off from a narrow 2:1 away defeat in the previous round. The home-field disadvantage and a... read more

Cercle Brugge - Mechelen

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

Things are looking problematic for the visiting side. They are going up against a stronger team which also has a home pitch advantage. Victory is still within reach – they’ll just have to work harder than usual to get it.

KV Oostende - Gent

KV Oostende are the definition of underdogs in this fixture. With betting odds of 5.00, no punter will dare backing them up against Gent. It is a wise decision as well as hosts will have an extremely difficult task surviving this clash.

The odds are clearly leaning in the away team’s favour, though the difference is by no means insurmountable. KV Oostende will have to give their all to come out on top, though, while Gent merely have to make sure not to make major mistakes.

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 - Sint-Truiden

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 - Union Saint-Gilloise

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.

Mechelen are coming on the back of a narrow defeat in their recent a... read more

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.
