Scroll down for all of our predictions, poll and stats for the Eupen v Charleroi game - along with the latest match odds.
Eupen go into this fixture after a 2-2 First Division A tied result against Standard Liège.
For Eupen, the goalscorers were Smail Prevljak (36') and Stef Peeters (57'). Merveille Bokadi (34') and Arnaud Bodart (90') scored for Standard Liège.
It has been a rare occasion in recent times where Eupen haven’t conceded. In fact, Pandas have seen their defence breached in 5 of their previous 6 games, shipping 10 goals in the process. We shall soon find out whether or not that trend will end up being sustained in this game.
Analysis of their past results shows that Eupen:
- have not registered a win against Charleroi in their last 2 league games.
- haven’t won at home in the past 2 league matches.
Since being defeated in their last game at the hands of KAA Gent in First Division A action, Charleroi will be hoping to turn things around here.
Osman Bukari (45') was the scorer for KAA Gent.
The stats don’t lie, and Charleroi have been scored against in 5 of their last 6 games, seeing opposing sides hit 10 goals in total. Defensively, Les Zèbres can certainly do much better.
Their prior results show that Charleroi:
- haven't been beaten by Eupen when they have played them away from home in the previous 2 league matches.
- are without a win away from home in their last 3 league matches.

Team News: Eupen
Eupen manager Beñat San José will be grateful to have no fitness worries at all coming into this clash thanks to a fully healthy group available to select from.
Team News: Charleroi
Thanks to a largely available group of players, there’s only the lone fitness problem for the Charleroi boss Karim Belhocine to be concerned about. Massimo Bruno (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) misses out for this game.
Here is a game where Eupen will have to play well to score goals against this Charleroi team who we reckon will just have the edge.
We therefore fancy a highly competitive game with a 0-1 win for Charleroi at the end of this one.
Looking forward to watching this one unfold.
