Club Brugge are set to play Gent at the Jan Breydel Stadium on Sunday in the final of the Belgian Super Cup.

Club Brugge come into this game on the back of a 1-1 draw against Anderlecht in their most recent official game. A first-half goal from Danish winger Andreas Skov Olsen for Club Brugge was canceled out by a late second-half own goal from Scottish centre-back Jack Hendry for Anderlecht.

Gent, on the other hand, lost 2-1 to Edward Still's Charleroi in their most recent official fixture. Goals from Iranian attacker Ali Gholizadeh and midfielder Daan Heymans sealed the victory for Charleroi. Cameroonian centre-back Michael Ngadeu-Ngadjui scored the consolation goal for Gent.

Club Brugge vs Gent Prediction

Club Brugge could soon lose two of their key players, with attackers Charles De Ketelaere and Noa Lang both linked with moves away. However, the likes of Hans Vanaken and Andreas Skov Olsen could prove to be important once again this season.

AC Milan are not interested in Luís Suarez as free agent - no talks or conversations. Milan priority is to complete the signing of Charles de Ketelaere as soon as possible. 🔴 #ACMilanNegotiations ongoing between Milan and Brugge.

Gent, on the other hand, finished fifth last season. They will be hoping to improve on that standing this season.

We expect Club Brugge to win.

Prediction: Club Brugge 1-0 Gent
