St. Liege vs Mouscron Prediction & Betting tips
The players of Royal Excel Mouscron scored a historic victory in the last matchday: 1-0 defeated KSC Lokeren OV at home and their sixth success in a row – a feat that had previously never been achieved in the admittedly short club history. However, this record also refers to the history of the previous club, which is why the series is quite extraordinary. Since the winter break, the club from Wallonia has successfully completed all league games and now ranks on the 10th place thanks to the altitude flight.
The table cellar was thus left successfully. The hosts from Liège, for their part, ranked third and could complete the qualification for the championship round three rounds before the end of the regular season with a win. Recently, however, Standard presented somewhat weaker than in the weeks before, as two defeats show on the last three matchdays. Despite that, Standard Liege’s Royal Excel Mouscron is in the lead in the home win. An assessment followed by the tip garnished with the additional standard Liege against Royal Excel Mouscron forecasting a mutual goal.
The runner-up conceded last weekend a 1: 2 defeat in Gent, the deserved failed and the consolation goal succeeded only in stoppage time. The bankruptcy is mainly explained by the fact that the Flemings had to win in order to qualify for the championship round. A project that Liège can turn off with five points to 7th place and only three matchdays as almost fulfilled. Since the points from the regular season are counted at least half, but the Walloons should not deny the provisional end of the season, of course, not too lax.
However, this is of course obvious to the kickers of the Maas themselves and a win in the coming match would ensure their qualification. A circumstance that coach Michel Preud’homme will probably once again point out to his players as an incentive before the match. On the offensive, the hopes on the part of the Cup winner are mainly on Renaud Emond, who is the best Goalgetter of the Walloons with ten goals. His injury-related absence was certainly an important reason why the top match in Genk was lost 2-0, just over three weeks ago. After that, the 27-year-old striker but again in two subsequent games against Lokeren, which was won 3-1, and at the mentioned 1: 2 in Gent ein. The striker already completed his fourth season with the ten-time titleholders and ten goals already set a new season record for him dar.
In the match against Mouscron Liège can also rely on his home strength: After all, was lost in the home Stade Maurice Dufrasne only one game in the Jupiler League. Instead, nine wins and three draws – a yield that no other club in the top Belgian league has. Most recently Liège won six league games in the league and in the Europa League against Sevilla. If one adds the victory in the test match against the Bundesliga club Mönchengladbach from January, there are eight wins in a row, which could cheer the fans of Liege in the recent past.
Royal Excel Mouscron:
Mouscron is still a young club that emerged in 2010 through the merger of Exelsior Mouscron and the RRC Peruwelz. The background for this step was Exelsior’s financial distress, which had no license from the local football association KBFV for the game operation. After re-founding, the club started in 2010 in the fourth division and then accomplish twice in a row promotion to the next higher league. After that, it took another two years, which had to be spent in the Proximus League, before 2014, the jump succeeded in the Jupiler League, where Exelsior had been home for the economic decline for 14 years.
In the last season of the way but would have led by a hair back into the second division, as Mouscron finished 14th place and had only three points behind the bottom of the table and relegated KV Mechelen. The reason for the poor placement was the defense, which had to draw with 59 goals after 30 matchdays, the worst record of all teams in the Belgian House of Lords. The deficit has been eliminated this season: instead of an average of just under two goals conceded per game as in the previous season, Royal Excel Mouscron is now in only 30 games after 27 rounds of play. A very good value, which is only undercut by the leaders from Genk and Antwerp and has, for example, the upcoming opponent.
Currently, the team of the German coach Bern Storck is also in a great mood. Whatever has been changed in the short winter break has paid off: Mouscron has won all six league games so far in the current calendar year! Among other things, the table leader KRC Genk as well as the KAA Gent were defeated 2-1 away. Wins that show that Excel is also a very unpleasant opponent at the moment. An important factor in the upswing at Mouscron is without a doubt the recent signing of Taiwo Awoniyi in a storm. The 21-year-old Nigerian striker came from league rival Gent and has impressively scored five goals in his first six league appearances. Awoniyi is on loan from the Flemings, but is actually under contract with Liverpool and played at Mouscron twice before, where he was also very successful with nine goals in 29 league games.
