Two giants of Belgian football will trade tackles on Sunday when Club Brugge host Anderlecht in the Jupiler League Championship playoff.

The visitors come into this game on the back of a 2-0 defeat against Union Saint-Gilloise. The defeat has now meant that Anderlecht will no longer be playing Champions League football next season.

The hosts have already sealed a title win this season after they maintained their unbeaten run in the Belgian Championship round by beating Antwerp last week.

Club Brugge vs Anderlecht Prediction

A lot rides on the outcome of this game for Anderlecht as they are in need of maximum points. Club Brugge have already won the league crown, while Anderlecht are seeking to qualify for the UEFA Europa League.

Given the history and quality available to both teams, they are likely to play on the front foot, with plenty of goalmouth action expected. However, the home team will have little to play for after they took care of the business last week. A victory for a much more motivated Anderlecht is on the cards.

Prediction: Anderlecht 3-1 Club Brugge
