Team News: KV Kortrijk
There is just the sole fitness concern for the KV Kortrijk boss Luka Elsner to be concerned about from an otherwise complete squad. Timothy Derijck (Ankle Injury) will miss out. Aleksandar Radovanovic cannot play in this game through suspension.
Team News: KAA Gent
With a completely healthy squad available to choose from, the KAA Gent manager Hein Vanhaezebrouck doesn’t have any fitness worries to report ahead of this game.
For this match, we think that KV Kortrijk are dangerous enough to put one past this KAA Gent side, but a single goal possibly won’t be good enough.
We’re therefore tipping a tight encounter finishing with a 1-2 advantage for KAA Gent when all is said and done. Should be a good one.
