All of our predictions, stats and the user poll for Charleroi v Beerschot are shown below - plus the latest betting odds.
Charleroi will be looking for a repeat result of a 0-2 First Division A success against SV Zulte Waregem.
For Charleroi, the goalscorers were Kaveh Rezaei (71') and Shamar Nicholson (88').
Their more recent scorelines highlight the fact that it has been a great time for the Charleroi rearguard. Les Zèbres have been mean at the back, with the tally of goals that have flown into the back of their net during their past 6 outings standing at 2.
Coming into this contest, Charleroi are unbeaten in their previous 11 league matches at home. They have been so resilient here.
Beerschot will come into the match following on from a 5-2 First Division A win to beat KRC Genk in their most recent outing.
For Beerschot, the goalscorers were Raphael Holzhauser (12', 63'), Pierre Bourdin (49'), Yan Vorogovskiy (85') and Marius Noubissi (90'). Paul Onuachu (19') and Cyriel Dessers (76') scored for KRC Genk.
In a total of 5 of the previous 6 games featuring Beerschot, at least three goals have been hit. The average goals scored per match during that time is 3.83, with the number of goals averaged by Beerschot coming out as 2.17. Such a trend isn’t assured to be carried forward here, though.

Team News: Charleroi
In our view, Les Zèbres will possibly use the 4-2-3-1 system for the game featuring Nicolas Penneteau, Joris Kayembe Ditu, Steeven Willems, Dorian Dessoleil, Maxime Busi, Guillaume Gillet, Marco Ilaimaharitra, Shamar Nicholson, Ryota Morioka, Ali Gholizadeh and Kaveh Rezaei.
Team News: Beerschot
There’s a good chance that Beerschot seem most likely to utilise a 5-3-2 formation by sending out Mike Vanhamel, Mohamed Réda Halaimia, Pierre Bourdin, Frederic Frans, Jan Van den Bergh, Joren Dom, Ryan Sanusi, Raphael Holzhauser, Tom Pietermaat, Tarik Tissoudali and Marius Noubissi.
It looks to us that Charleroi can and should stay in control for long periods of time and should be able to convert a few of the chances that they create.
Conversely, Beerschot may well find it hard to find the back of the net although we do think that they will probably end up seeing enough of the ball to score, too.
Therefore, we are anticipating a pretty comfortable 3-1 victory for Charleroi after 90 minutes.
