Oostende vs Beerschot VA Prediction & Betting tips
We close the first day with a game between Ostend and Beerschot. Can the new wind give Ostend a good start? Or will PhD candidate Beerschot continue on his cloud? Interesting duel by the sea.
Pacific Media Group put more money into KV Oostende than was initially needed. This has emerged from a state report. To still obtain the license, the new investors of KV Oostende had to invest 2.7 million euros in the club. But now it appears that Pacific Media Group has pumped no less than 4.2 million euros into the club. This shows that the new investors are serious about getting KVO back on track.
A renewed KV Oostende has gained confidence last weekend by winning against Cercle Brugge 3-1 in an exhibition game. New striker Makhtar Gueye also showed up. And that is also allowed, because KVO is said to have paid a million euros to get the Senegalese attacker free from Saint-Etienne. The exhibition match between KV Oostende and Cercle Brugge was played in the ‘new’ Diaz Arena and was broadcast on local television. After an hour of playing football, KVO was already 3-0 ahead.
KV Oostende has introduced a new player this week. It is Cameron McGeehan, a Barnsley FC midfielder. He has signed a contract for three seasons. Cameron McGeehan comes from Barnsley FC, but he was loaned out to Portsmouth for six months last season. In all competitions together, the midfielder played 31 games in which he scored four goals and gave one assist.
Beerschot started his preparation for the first match in 1A on Thursday. And Hernan Losada welcomed everyone fit and well to training. As expected, everyone registered for training after the won promotion final. Quite remarkable, because Beerschot has now kept his entire core fit for almost eight weeks, without any injury. Acquisition Abdoulie Sanyang arrived conditionally behind the rest of the core. The club is trying to get him to play on Monday, but it doesn’t seem like Hernan Losada will call on him yet. The 21-year-old Gambian is given the time to perfect his level.
Hernan Losada has given his first press conference as coach of a 1A team. Beerschot’s 38-year-old trainer has turned the switch after winning the title. “I think it is a shame that we were no longer able to enjoy that title win. That’s a shame, but the circumstances are now like that. We have to deal with it. Although my players and I would have liked to celebrate this historic moment longer. “But Losada quickly turned his gaze to Ostend. “That is also enjoyment for me. Everything related to football is enjoyment for me. Our goals for this season? Save us as soon as possible. ”
It took a lot of effort, but Beerschot is preparing for the big return in 1A. And that earth may suddenly be turned over, because the stadium plans are again topical. “The board is fully aware that we have to invest in the infrastructure,” said chairman Francis Vrancken. “We are going to increase comfort on the Kiel, but in the long term a completely new stadium is on the agenda.” And the plans are taking concrete shape. Beerschot is in talks with the City of Antwerp about the new stadium.
