Kortrijk vs Waasland-Beveren Prediction & Betting tips
Waasland-Beveren benefited from the recent end of the season in Belgium. The Lions from East Flanders were able to keep the class thanks to the increase in the Jupiler League and thus avoid relegation to the second division. Now the bottom of the 2019/20 season starts the new season and is a guest at the Red-Whites from Kotrijk.
As the odds comparison of the betting base shows, Kortrijk is the favorite against Waasland-Beveren.
In preparation for the new season Waasland-Beveren was literally demonstrated by opponents such as Knokke, St. Truiden, PSG and Waregem. In the four test match failures, the Lions from East Flanders conceded a total of 18 goals. It is quite possible that a debacle against KV Kortrijk will follow at the start of the season.
KV Kortrijk finished the last season in the middle of the table. In 29 games there were only 33 points for the red-whites. Although Kortrijk stayed away from the relegation places, he had hardly any realistic chances of a starting place for the Europa League. The next few weeks will show whether things will go better for coach Yves Vanderhaeghe’s team this season.
In the most recent transfer window, KV Kortrijkt’s activities remained largely manageable. Vanderhaeghe will start the new season with a stable team structure. The most valuable player in Kortrijk’s ranks is Terem Moffi, who happened in the winter transfer window of the most recent season. The 21-year-old Nigerian scored four goals in seven appearances for Kortrijk.
Vanderhaeghe had rotated a lot in preparation for the new season. In all five test matches Kortrijk remained without a win and scored only three goals. It therefore remains to be seen how the Red-Whites’ attack department will present itself at the start of the season.
It is quite possible that this trend will continue in the new season. In the game between Kortrjik vs. Waasland-Beveren, we do not consider a prognosis of over 2.5 goals to be unreasonable despite poor preparation.
The Lions from East Flanders want to do better this season and stay away from the relegation places of the Jupiler League. In the last season, relegation to the second division could be avoided thanks to the increase in the Belgian House of Lords. At the end of the 2019/20 season, Waasland-Beveren was last in the table with 20 points.
If the latest pre-season has its way, the next bad season for the Lions may be ahead. After all, there were four defeats for Waasland-Beveren in the four test matches, in which a total of 18 goals were conceded. There were two of them in the dress rehearsal against Knokke (0: 2), an amateur club in Belgium.
There was no major reinforcement in the current transfer window. How Waasland-Beveren will keep the league with the manageable squad remains uncertain for the time being. Nicky Hayen celebrates his coaching debut as head coach of Waasland-Beveren on Sunday evening. The 39-year-old will take over the scepter for the first time at a top division club.
Hayen won’t have any failures to complain about on Sunday evening and can draw on the full. If the 39-year-old is lucky at his coaching debut, Kortrijk vs. Waasland-Beveren attractive odds for an away win can be tapped.
