The Jupiler Pro League continues this weekend and will see Antwerp host Club Brugge on Sunday afternoon in the fifth round of the European playoffs.

Antwerp have struggled for form of late and now look set to end the season bottom of the Championship round. They were beaten 2-1 by Anderlecht last time out, marking their second straight defeat to the Purple and Whites after their 4-0 loss in the reverse fixture last weekend.

The home side sit fourth in the group with 33 points. They are six points behind Anderlecht in the table and will be looking to reduce that gap with a win this weekend.

Club Brugge are in immense form at the moment and are on course to clinch a third straight league title. They picked up back-to-back wins over title contenders Union Saint-Gilloise to leapfrog the newly-promoted outfit at the top of the table.

Club Brugge sit atop the table with 46 points. They will be looking to continue their strong run on Sunday as manager Alfred Schreuder aims to wrap up his spell in charge with the league title.

Antwerp vs Club Brugge Prediction

Antwerp are winless in the championship round, losing three of their four games so far and scoring just once. They are winless in their last three home games and will be looking to end that run this weekend.

Club Brugge, on the other hand, have found new life under manager Alfred Schreuder and are on a 12-game unbeaten run in the league, winning all but one of those games. The visitors should continue their title charge on Sunday.

Prediction: Antwerp 0-2 Club Brugge
