St. Liege vs Waasland-Beveren Prediction & Betting tips
Standard may play in-house on the final match day against Waasland-Beveren. On paper the ideal preparation game for play-off 1. The visitors will effortlessly try to move up a position in the rankings.
Standard remains a work in progress on eleven match days before the end of the competition. Capable of the very best, but just as good as the average. Perhaps that is why the Rouches don’t hit the chest and don’t throw their ambitions in the street. “First we would not make play-off 1. Then we suddenly became the title candidate. A little later we had to fear again for our place in the top six. So I don’t know where we are, “says Michel Preud’homme. ‘We’ll see. Our goal? Collect as many points as possible for each match. Keep growing. Then we’ll see where we end up. ”
The end justified the means. Standard did not come to Bruges to entertain the public. The Rouches regularly folded back on their own half, with Paul Mpoku as the most advanced pawn, fifteen meters from the center line. Cercle didn’t know what to do with the ball. In the switching moments that followed the uneasiness in Bruges, Standard hurt the association. Renaud Emond needed two chances to put the match in a decisive fold.
“If Standard is at its best, I don’t think anything can be done about it. But they always fall back and that frustrates Preud’homme ’, according to journalist Stephan Keygnaert. Striker Obbi Oularé picked up on it. “The players certainly realize that. At Sclessin we can always do a little more, with the support of our audience as well. Of course we will do everything we can to do better in the coming matches outside the home. ”
The end of the regular competition is in sight and the sporting rescue is a fact, but it is not true that Waasland-Beveren is playing football aimlessly. There is still a certain schwung in the team. In this way a lot was created in the last matches. The finish needs to be a lot better. The mentality is there. Maybe they can still be thirteenth or fourteenth. Then try to play a good play-off 2 in preparation for next season.
Waasland-Beveren and Zulte Waregem only played for the honor and their position in the final ranking last weekend. What could be feared in this end-of-season match, became reality in the first half hour: a lack of enthusiasm and danger to the target. However, the goodwill was present with both teams. Still it was a nice match, because it changed in the third quarter, when the home players started to make better use of the spaces. Both teams were able to score in a pleasant second half and the division of points was justified.
Talks were held on Monday with Adnan Custovic and his entire staff with a view to next season. Those conversations were described afterwards as positive and everyone would like to stay next season. The option in his contract is therefore more than likely lifted. There must be clarity towards the start of play-off 2. He also has to come up with goalie Davy Roef, but that is a more difficult case. The keeper wants to go one step higher and the purchase option of € 750,000 at Anderlecht is a serious investment.
