Oostende vs Charleroi Prediction & Betting tips
On Friday night we open fourteen with a game between two teams in the middle of the season that had the ambition to reach the top six for the season. Ostend is already five games without victory while the visitors gradually crawl upwards.
Ostend should gradually start to repackage if it does not want to sink further into the ranking. With a two in fifteen the good start is completely erased. The Kustboys average the lowest percentage of possession in first class: 42.7 percent. This team is hardly in the sixteen, especially against the top clubs. So trainer Gert Verheyen has to find a solution for this. Verheyen undoubtedly imagined his very first return to Jan Breydel completely different, but KVO was at times Club’s play ball.
Even before half-time, Club Brugge could already think of the top match of Saturday against Genk. 2-0 with the rest and Ostend barely appeared in the play. After the break it was no longer a match. After a free kick by Stefano Denswil, Siebe Schrijvers scored the 4-0 in the rebound and Hans Vanaken could freewheel several times. Ostende could only threaten via a distance shot from Jordy Vanlerberghe and a header from Goran Milovic.
‘The analysis of such a match has been made quickly’, Gert Verheyen started on the press talk. ‘We could not follow in all possible areas from the first to the last minute. Actually, we may even be lucky that we got ‘only’ four. “KVO lost all the matches against the G5 and gained eighteen goals. ‘There is of course a difference in quality, but that does not mean that it has to be four every time’, said Verheyen.
Charleroi slowly sneaks back to top six. Mainly thanks to a strong home reputation they stay on track for Play-off 1. With three points behind the well-managed sixth place, everything is still possible. Should it be possible to visit the three points again at Ostend, they will be halfway through the regular competition where they want to stand.
Cold, rain and little atmosphere: the duel between Charleroi and STVV on matchday thirteen did not announce itself as a high flyer and that was evident. Before rest, Charleroi dominated, with an active Nurio on the left. Victor Osimhen also showed himself eagerly. STVV, however, showed little, but at the stroke of rest Charleroi almost got the lid on the nose. Charleroi kept on printing and that resulted in the over-earned 1-0: Cristian Benavente nodded in a good cross by Marco Ilaimaharitra.
Felice Mazzu: ‘It is not because we have won today that our ambition to reach PO1 has suddenly increased. The other season is not the other season. Last year, a few top clubs were out of business for a long time. That is not the case right now. Of course, PO1 remains a target, but at this moment I hope that we will find our serenity. This requires good performance and results. Like tonight. ”
