Description: EPN Vs BRU Dream11 Team Probable Playing 11 And Match Report: Rangers look to keep upto speed with Celtics in the opening exchanges of the new season.
After making the Jupiler League their bastion in the 2019-20 to lift the title with a 15 point lead over Gent, few had envisaged the defeat which struck Club Brugge in the opening round of this season. After losing just one match all season in 2019-20, the club had already equalled that record this time around with a 1-0 defeat to Charleroi.
In what was an uncharacteristic performance from the prevailing champions, Blub Brugge were dismal in both attack and defence. Shut out for large parts of the match, the side ended up shipping the one goal as well as its worldclass defence surprisingly went off to sleep and faltered at the wrong moment.
It was a drab display, one the side will be itching to overturn when they step out for the second encounter today. Up against an Eupen side which has traditionally struggled in the defensive docket, Brugge will be quietly confident of getting their first points on the board this Sunday.
EPN Vs BRU Dream11 Probable Winner
Eupen managed to do well for themselves in their first match in the new season. A 1-1 draw against Leuven emoted towards resillinace, perseverance and girt in the side’s ranks, traits which the side will need in abundance if they are to veer clear of the relegation zone this term.
However, while they showed fight and character to accrue the one point the last time around, Eupen will be left downtrodden after today’s encounter. The club is up against a club which has ripped teams into shreds, an outcome awaiting a defence that shipped in 51 goals last season.

Dream 11 Picks
Eupen had to thank Ortwin de Wolf for their incredible draw the last time around. Had it not been for the shot stopper the team had no chance of curbing their opponents from scoring the second goal with Ortwin coming up with a sensational performance for his side.
A cleansheet for Brugge looks the likeliest narrative out of today’s encounter. They might have gone onto concede the last time around but that does little to deter us from opting for a triad of picks from the club for this one.
This is a side which let in a measly 18 goals last season and with Eupen having strung together just 28 goals last term, Brugge will be quietly confident of salvaging their first shut down today. It’s a discourse we are reposing faith in to see us earmark all of Brandon Mechele, Simon Deli and Eduard Sobol from the side for today.
This can easily end up as a tie where Brugge end up schooling Eupen today. Eupen have often failed to traverse their way past rough waters with the club having run its race infront of attacking sides.
And we envision Club Brugge running Eupen to the ground today to see us open our purses for the worldclass names from the side in this slot. We begin with the selection of Krepin Diatta who hit the 6 goals and three assists for his side last season to spearhead the side’s title march.
Hans Vanakhen is going to join up with him with the player the side’s top scorer last year, two names capable of walking all over Eupen in this one. Eupen elsewhere will see Isaac Nuhu become the first pick from the club for today’s impending clash after the player scored for the side in its 1-1 draw the last time around.
The diminutive and dynamic partnership of Jens Cools and Stef Peeters is also rolled into our club from Eupen, two players whose pluck and gallantry will be required if the club is to refrain Brugge from raking in the goals today.
5 goal man Emmanuel Dennis will be paired up with Youssouph Badji from Brugge for the imminent encounter, a partnership set to be at the forefront of Brugge’s attacking might today.
Captain And Vice-Captain
The 13 goals for Hans make him a must have pick as our captain while Diatta is the vice-captain.
