Kortrijk vs Leuven Prediction & Betting tips
There is again midweek football in the Jupiler Pro League. On Tuesday evening, Kortrijk and Oud-Heverlee-Leuven are competing against each other. The decor for this competition is the Guldensporenstadion, home of Kortrijk. Both teams already have quite a few points and therefore do an excellent job in the ranking with a three point. Who draws the longest end here?
Kortrijk has been doing very well since the appointment of Glen De Boeck. It almost ended up with the top six to compete in play-off one. All in all, Kortrijk is happy with play-off two because it is probably more likely to win a European ticket which would be very good for the club. They are already doing everything. That is clear from the way they still come forward and play at a good level.
After the rather surprising loss at Mouscron, Kortrijk looked on revenge. It went up to the Lisp to give out SK Lierse. Lierse that suffers from both sporting and financial problems and that you also saw the game image. Kortrijk was allowed to do just about what it wanted to do, and in doing so, you could clearly see the qualitative difference. Perbet scored after half an hour. In the second half we suddenly saw a completely different picture. Lierse actually had 80% possession but could not create 100% goal chances. Kortrijk lashed at the ideal counter that came after playing for an hour via Ajagun. Here and there both teams got some chances but scoring was no longer there.
Kortrijk thus comes to six points, one less than the leader in the group, Zulte-Waregem. Glen De Boeck looks back with satisfaction and also sees that there are opportunities to win this group. For that it must win home against OHL. It can already count on a nearly complete selection.
OHL has a good season. It knew that the battle for the promotion would be a difficult task and ended not just behind the top in First Division B for nothing. It can now mix with other first-class players in play-off two to show that they also to manage. And they did that last week with verve …
On a visit to Waasland-Beveren they showed themselves almost the whole match of the first division, and that on the move. It was the first to score via Julien Gorius in the 23rd minute which caused Waasland-Beveren to come and OHL on the counterattack could play. It is that which perhaps made them so strong in this competition. Without a lot of giving away, it came out regularly. In the 54th minute it was possible to make the 0-2 via Nikola Storm. On the hour Vermant decided to bring in Joachim Van Damme. A bad move turned out to be so, after only five minutes on the field, Van Damme took red after a bad idea. In this way, the victory for OHL could be added without much extra effort.
It has nevertheless managed to put down a handsome four out of nine. Only surprising against Lierse, it lost surprisingly with 1-2. It plays without pressure and especially with guts. This will also be played against Kortrijk. With risks, but that makes the game beautiful what Leuven brings. Possibly the same elf will stand against Kortrijk against Beveren. ‘Never change a winning a team’? …
