SV Zulte Waregem
SV Zulte Waregem will be looking for a repeat result of the 0-1 First Division A triumph against Royal Excel Mouscron.
The only name on the scoresheet from SV Zulte Waregem was Ibrahima Seck (73').
It has been seldom in recent times where SV Zulte Waregem have shown defensive steel. In fact, Essevee have been scored against in 5 of their previous 6 clashes, letting in 15 goals along the way.
Charleroi will come into the clash following on from a 2-0 First Division A win to beat Antwerp in their previous fixture.
The only scorer from Charleroi was Shamar Nicholson (17', 91').
Over the course of their previous half-dozen clashes, Charleroi have bagged a total of 13 goals. Les Zèbres have also not failed to score on each one of those occasions. Over that period, their defenders have seen 2 goals go against them. We will see if that trend can be continued on into this next match.
Their previous form shows that Charleroi:
- haven't beaten SV Zulte Waregem when they have played them away from home in the previous 2 matches in the league.
- are undefeated in their last 3 away league matches.
Head to head
Checking out their prior head to head meetings stretching back to 26/12/2017, there is nothing to separate the two clubs with SV Zulte Waregem winning 3 of those games, Charleroi 3 and 0 being drawn in normal time.
Those games weren’t short on goals, either, with 23 in total at an average of 3.83 goals per match.
The last league contest featuring these clubs was First Division A match day 25 on 08/02/2020 which ended up with the score at Charleroi 4-0 SV Zulte Waregem.
The match was refereed by Jasper Vergoote.
Team News: SV Zulte Waregem
Erdin Demir (Hip Injury) and Sammy Bossut (Fractured Skull) are unavailable for SVZW boss Francky Dury.
We are thinking that Essevee should line up in a 4-3-3 system this time featuring Eike Bansen, Laurens De Bock, Olivier Deschacht, Ewoud Pletinckx, Daniel Opare, Omar Govea, Ibrahima Seck, Jannes Van Hecke, Jelle Vossen, Saido Berahino and Gianni Bruno.
Team News: Charleroi
Charleroi manager Karim Belhocine has some current player fitness concerns. Christophe Diandy (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) and Massimo Bruno (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) are names that won’t be on the team sheet. Mamadou Fall will not be able to play in this game through being suspended.
There’s a good chance that Les Zèbres could decide to play in a 4-2-3-1 lineup by sending out Nicolas Penneteau, Maxime Busi, Steeven Willems, Dorian Dessoleil, Joris Kayembe Ditu, Marco Ilaimaharitra, Guillaume Gillet, Ali Gholizadeh, Ryota Morioka, Shamar Nicholson and Kaveh Rezaei.
SV Zulte Waregem will have their work cut out to put one past this Charleroi lineup who we think will likely be able to grind out a win.
That’s why our selection here is for a highly competitive game with a 0-1 win for Charleroi at full-time.
Should be interesting.
