St. Liege vs Kortrijk Prediction & Betting tips
Standard and Kortrijk set up their last straight line of the regular season with a mutual game. Will the home team continue its form before the winter break? Does Kortrijk keep its undefeated series?
St. Liege :
The Rouches did an excellent job before the winter break and hope to continue that series after the winter break. It took ten to twelve and finished the year with a fourth place. The team only seems to get stronger and the other teams in play-off 1 will have to take Standard into account. They think again last season. Standard then played everyone away in the play-offs and only stranded on a few points of the title.
A quiet wintermercato, that seemed the motto for Standard. As long as no one leaves, nobody needs to join the well-balanced team of Michel Preud’homme. Standard has reported for Kevin Diks of Fiorentina. The Dutch defender, according to SportItalia, could soon sign in Liege. Former team Feyenoord also showed interest, but it is the Rouches who will more than likely win the 22-year-old, multi-purpose defender.
The good shape also has its disadvantage. The strong holders are in the spotlight. For example, the Rouches have twice refused an offer for Paul-José Mpoku from the American club New England Revolution. At first they offered four million and then even more, but the people of Liège kept the leg stiff. Also a Turkish top club inquired, but came back from a bare trip when they heard the transfer price. In principle, the 26-year-old flank attacker can not leave.
Like every year, KV Kortrijk was not the only first-class winner to go to the sun for the winter internship. Coach Yves Vanderhaeghe does not see any problems with that. ‘We are doing well here’, according to the De Kerels coach. “The weather is not too bad, we did not experience any hindrance.” Only practice matches are more difficult, so Kortrijk mainly plays mutual matches. “You do not find an opponent. They are heading south and the clubs from the lower series resume the competition. ‘
At KV Kortrijk Abdul Ajagun pulled the door behind him. The midfielder travels for half a year to the Cypriot Omonia Nicosia, where Yannis Anastasiou is coach. Ajagun often worked together with the Greek practice master. It was also in the wake of Anastasiou that Ajagun arrived last season in the Guldensporenstadion. The Nigerian immediately became a regular pawn and came to 44 games in two seasons. This season, however, he came much less under the direction of both Glen De Boeck and Yves Vanderhaeghe.
Ilombe ‘Petit Pelé’ Mboyo was a big question mark when he came to Kortrijk last summer, but proves that he still has his nose for the goal. Half a year later two clubs want to pluck him away again. However, KV Kortrijk is not particularly keen to let the striker leave. Mboyo is still under contract in the Guldensporenstadion until mid 2020. This season he already scored seven goals and three assists in eighteen matches.
