Team News: KV Kortrijk
Youssef Challouk (Knee Injury), David Henen (Hamstring Injury) and Thierry Ambrose (Achilles tendon rupture) won’t be playing for KV Kortrijk boss Edward Still.
Team News: RSC Anderlecht
RSC Anderlecht manager Brian Riemer has to choose from a squad that has some fitness concerns. Majeed Ashimeru (Muscle Injury), Louis Patris (Fractured Hand) and Yari Verschaeren (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) will miss out on this game.
Our thinking is that KV Kortrijk have the ability to put a goal past this RSC Anderlecht lineup, although just one goal possibly won’t quite prevent them from conceding a couple at the other end.
Therefore, we think that it’s going to be a close game with a 1-2 winning score for RSC Anderlecht after 90 minutes. Let’s just see how this one goes.
