Waasland-Beveren vs Oostende Prediction & Betting tips
We conclude match day nine with a game between Waasland-Beveren and Ostend. If corona doesn’t stop there, of course. There are many infections with the home team. So wait and see.
Due to the corona cases at Waasland-Beveren, it is not yet certain whether the match against KV Oostende can continue. The club is still waiting for the results of a final test round. It went from bad (seven positive cases) to worse (nine cases) at Waasland-Beveren. According to the protocol of the Pro League, a team can request a postponement from seven corona cases in the player group. But it is still too early to postpone the game against KV Oostende on Monday 19 October. After all, the protocol prescribes a final test three days before the match. So Friday. Depending on the results on Saturday, something can be decided.
The chance is on the small side that the number of positive cases has decreased. But will W-B actually ask for a postponement? “If it turns out that we appear at kick-off strongly weakened as a result, it is something to be reckoned with. It is difficult to speak of an ideal preparation now, “said the W-B press officer. Suppose the club asks for a postponement, then approval from the Pro League is first needed. “For example, if four of the seven players have played less than a minute for the first team, an application can be rejected,” said Stijn Van Bever, press officer of the Pro League.
Waasland-Beveren set Sparta Petegem aside on Saturday in the fifth round of the Croky Cup. Daan Heymans opened the score in the half hour and in the second half newcomer Michael Frey made the decision with two goals. This opened his account for his new employer. Good for confidence! “Especially in a new club it is good to quickly find the way to goal. Of course, as a striker I am focused on goals, but I also work hard. There is a good group here that works really hard. We have a good presence in the sixteen and that makes it easier to score, “said Frey.
At the age of 12 he was able to go to Barcelona, at the age of 15 to Manchester City, but now at the age of nineteen he signs a contract with … KV Oostende. Evangelos Patoulidis was known for years as a super talent, but a big breakthrough was not yet possible for the young midfielder. “Do I regret how my career has turned out so far? Not at all. Everyone chooses their own path and it is fine for me. Only now do I really start to grow as a player. KV Oostende is a great step in my career, really. I am not at all disappointed in football. I just want to have fun on the field and work hard next to it, “he says.
At KV Oostende they want to give more of their own youth the chance this year. Two young people are now getting their first (semi-) professional contract. After Jelle Bataille and Robbie D’Haese already made breakthroughs from their own youth, it is now the turn of Marvin Dewaele and Jorben Vanhulle to work on their breakthrough. The two youngsters signed a contract this week until the end of the season. The two have been training with the first team all season and will therefore continue to do so. It concerns a defender in the case of Dewaele and an attacker in the case of Vanhulle.
You know, if you really want to see good football in Belgium, you could just as well go and watch KV Oostende. We didn’t think we’d say this for the season, but it’s one of the most attractive we’ve seen in the Jupiler Pro League in recent weeks. With a real finisher at the front, this Ostend plays in the left column all season long. Much has already been said about the Gegenpressing, but as a result, too little is said about the game that Ostend plays in possession. They know blindly where their mates are.
