From a largely full-strength squad, there is just the one fitness problem for the Charleroi boss Karim Belhocine to contend with. Ken Nkuba (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) won’t be in action. Marco Ilaimaharitra will not be able to play in this game through being suspended.

We’re therefore expecting to see a fairly comfortable 2-0 margin for RSC Anderlecht after 90 minutes.
