Seraing will be looking for an improved result here following a 3-2 First Division A defeat in their last game at the hands of KV Kortrijk.
In that game, Seraing had 39% possession and 12 attempts on goal with 7 on target. The only player to score for Seraing was Vagner Dias (18', 60'). On the other side, Kortrijk got 21 shots at goal with 7 on target. Felipe Avenatti (9'), Billal Messaoudi (23') and Faiz Selemani (63') scored for KV Kortrijk.
It’s been seldom in recent times that Seraing have shown defensive steel. In fact, Seraing have seen their defence breached in 6 of their previous 6 games, letting in 12 goals in the process. In any event, we will just have to wait and see whether such a trend might be sustained in this next game.
Going into this contest, Seraing are without a win at home for the past 15 matches in the league. The home fans must be at their wits' end.
