Standard Liege welcome Brugge in the penultimate play-of round of the Jupiler league. Brugge has 4 points advantage over second placed Standard so a point would do for them. The hosts have to win this so that the championship is decided in the last round. Because of that I would say the advantage is with the hosts. If the visitors will be playing for that one point it will cost them three.
Standard is the hit team of the play-off round and have scored the most and conceded the least. In fact their form has been oustanding for months now and the only loss came away against Genk. They won 10 of the last 14 league matches with also 3 draws. In the play –off Standard has 6-1-1 and 19:8 gd. The coach Sa Pinto has done great work and has given the team confidence and has taken the best out of his players. Some players as Edmilson, Emond and Carcela heve been imposing in front of goal and the whole team raised themselves to another level. They just look sharp and are creating numerous chances. In their last few matches we have seen what Standard can do. They just demolished Genk at home with 5:0 and also got the best of Anderlecht away with 3:1. Anderlecht was in form at the at time but Standard was just to clinical.
Brugge is the leader since the season started and it would be a damn shame to lose it in the end. But it can happen as Bruge is far from impressive. They have been on the decline since january I would say. What once were wins turned to draws and draws turned to losses. They just don`t have the same conviction. Brugge has won just 3 of the last 10 away league matches which say a lot. They still look capable at home but the real problems are on the road. It has been the case for a long time. Brugge did win their last away match agaist Charleroi 1:3 which kept them in check but this will be much more serious opponent.
The hosts will be missing the suspended Fai(def.31-1) and Koutroumbis(def.7-0) and injured Marin(mid.33-4) and Bokadi(mid.8-0).
Brugge is without Limbombe(att.32-6), Vermeer(keeper, 7-0) and Mitrović(def.10-0) while Abdoulay Diaby(att.34-15, first scorer) is rated doubtful.
I expect Standard to be the aggressive one and take the 3 points today.
