OH Leuven will host Club Brugge at Den Dreef Stadium in Jupiler Pro League on Sunday.

Leuven have won two of their three games and find themselves in the top five. They finished 11th last season but have high ambitions for the new term, with 12 new players registered, including Santi Mingo from Barcelona B. However, OHL face a stern test against one of the strongest teams in the league.

Club Brugge are the three-time defending champions and the team to beat in Belgium. However, their new campaign is yet to pick up steam, having won only one of their three games to sit eighth in the standings with four points.

Blauw-Zwart will look for maximum points on their trip to Leuven, as they'll slip further down the standings if they fumble at the Den Dreef Stadium. Considering the same, an enthralling game could ensue.
