The Belgian Jupiler League returns with a fresh set of fixtures as Sporting Charleroi play host to Club Brugge on Friday.

Both sides head into the weekend on a run of two consecutive victories and we expect them to go all out against each other in search of all three points.

Our new No.2️⃣8️⃣! 😍

Sporting Charleroi made it two wins from two last Sunday as they saw off Zulte Waregem 3-1 away from home.

This followed a 1-0 victory against newly-promoted RFC Seraing a fortnight ago which saw their two-game losing streak come to an end.

Sporting Charleroi’s next assignment sees them go against a Club Brugge side who are unbeaten in 16 of the last 20 meetings between the teams, claiming 11 wins and five draws.

Carl Hoefkens’s men were made to work their socks off last weekend as they held on for a 2-1 victory over a resilient Kortrijk side.

Club Brugge are now unbeaten in three consecutive games, picking up two wins and one draw since July’s 2-1 loss at Eupen.

With 10 points from five games, the Blauw-Zwart are currently third in the Jupiler League standings, one point and two places above Sporting Charleroi.
