Beerschot Wilrijk vs Westerlo Prediction & Betting tips
On Friday evening, Beerschot-Wilrijk plays for the first time this season on its own Kiel. They get the visit from KVC Westerlo that last week could immediately keep the three points at home. Is there a first ‘carnival on the Kiel’ or is Westerlo continuing his unbeaten series of 21 games?
The Rats played on the last day of play 3-3 on the field of Tubize. It can safely be said that this was a match with two faces. Where Beerschot-Wilrijk put sparkling football on the mat in the first half and withdrew the changing rooms with a 1-3 lead, this was given away in the last 45 minutes. It was mainly the young Dante Vanzeir, who came over from Racing Genk, who impressed with his speed and also managed to find the net once. In spite of this, the youth also missed some imposed chances to deepen the lead even further. The second half brought a few of the pains of the previous season to the surface, namely the fact that in the final phase they just threw everything away.
It is clear that De Ratten wants to put something right against De Kemphanen on Friday night, in-house. The first half of last week and large parts of the preparation showed that there is music in this team. It will be a matter for Stijn Vreven to ensure that everything stays the same for 90 minutes.
KVC Westerlo kicked off the season last week with a first victory against Roeselare. It was 2-1 with two goals from the top scorer of last season, Jens Naessens. As a result, the team from the Kempen has been unbeaten for 21 games. The cautiously offensive football of Bob Peeters, where the emphasis remains on a rock-solid organization, is bearing fruit. After Westerlo had to play the playdowns last season to maintain in 1B, the ambition is slightly higher this year. Manager Herman Wijnants dreams of ending in the top 4 and in this way in the playoffs against some first-class players to come out.
Bob Peeters had the following to say about Friday’s match: ‘By the late equalizer of Tubize, Beerschot-Wilrijk will want to put something right for their own people on Friday. We therefore expect a warm welcome. ‘ Undoubtedly, it will be the ambition to continue the undefeated series against Beerschot-Wilrijk on Friday-evening, as a result of which a successful start of the season could be held in the Kempen.
