Belgian teams in European football


Another matchday in European club football promises another round of thrilling encounters. That’s not in the least the case for the four remaining Belgian teams in the biggest European leagues. Club Bruges and KRC Genk face heavy opposition in the Champions League, while Standard Liège and KAA Gent have enough on their plates in the Europa League. Let’s find some insights for smart bets!

Real Madrid – Club Bruges

Club Bruges travels down south to Madrid, where it will meet Real Madrid in the Santiago Bernabéu for the second matchday of the group stage on Tuesday, October 1 at 6.15 p.m. With base odds on the game @1.30 for a Real win, @6.20 for a draw, and @9.20 for a Bruges win, things aren’t looking to bright for Club Bruges. If it can get everything just right, there’s a shot in it for Bruges, as Los Blancos stars like Eden Hazard are struggling to find their form.

Bruges to find vindication in a late but all-important out goal? “Last to score: Club Bruges” gives you nice odds @3.55!

KRC Genk – SSC Napoli

Dries Mertens’s SCC Napoli visits KRC Genk on Wednesday, October 2 at 6.15 p.m. Belgium’s reigning champion will have to bring its best game to the field if it wants any chance at qualification for the next round. @6.60 for a Genk win, @5.00 on a draw and €1.44 for an important away win for Napoli, it will be an uphill battle for the Belgians. Can Genk take inspiration from the home crowd to create a home stunt against a well-oiled football machine that includes Dries Mertens?

‘Halftime/Full Time: Draw/SSC Napoli’ @4.20 could be worth a bet!

Arsenal – Standard Liège

Standard Liège didn’t get the luckiest draw in this Europa League draw, and with Arsenal, is up against one of the biggest teams in the Europa League. Playing out in Arsenal Stadium, on Thursday, October 3 at 9 p.m, is no gift either. The perceived size different translate in some unnerving base odds for Standard: @1.33 for an Arsenal win, @5.60 for a draw, and @9.00 for a Standard win. This could be a psychological game where focus and confidence are key for the visitors…

Oleksandriya – KAA Gent

With Ukrainian side Oleksandriya, KAA Gent seems to have gotten off easy in the draw for its Europa League group phase. After defeating French Ligue 1 side Saint-Étienne, Gent is leading its group, so a victory against Oleksandriya @1.76 would stress Gent’s ambitions. A draw @3.90 and a win for Oleksandriya @4.60 seem less likely on the surface, but have to be considered too. If the Ghentians manage to overcome their shaky away reputation, they could be breaking a spell.

‘Win Margin: KAA Gent with 2’ @5.20 could be an interesting bet if you’re brave enough!
