The Three-colored have lost three control games and then have completely failed the first round against Genk (0:4), having fired only one shot on target for the whole game.
Statistics and head-to-heads
Cercle Brugge hasn’t been losing home matches since 2014.
Cercle Brugge has scored in 4 out of 5 last matches.
Lokeren has lost 4 matches out of 4 last.
We believe that the debutant will play in attack, despite its modest status. Guests are in awful gaming form and two important players won’t be able to participate. We wait that the fresher will be able to score at last its first goal, and maybe two, but we won’t wait for any goals from Lokeren.
