Team News: KV Kortrijk
Regarding absentees, there’s just one fitness concern for the KV Kortrijk boss Yves Vanderhaeghe to be concerned about thanks to an almost full-strength set of players. Brendan Hines-Ike (Muscle Injury) will miss out.
It looks as if De Kerels could opt for a 4-4-2 formation for this one featuring Adam Jakubech, Kristof D'Haene, Lucas Rougeaux, Timothy Derijck, Petar Golubovic, Gilles Dewaele, Hannes van der Bruggen, Evgen Makarenko, Eric Ocansey, Faiz Selemanie and Ilombe Mboyo.
Team News: Royal Excel Mouscron
Thanks to a mainly healthy group of players, there’s just the sole fitness issue for the Royal Excel Mouscron manager Fernando Da Cruz to be concerned about. Cedric Omoigui (Knee Injury) misses out for this game.
We’re of the thinking that Mouscron appear most likely to make use of a 4-3-3 system, starting the game with Hervé Kouakou Koffi, Alessandro Ciranni, Kouadio Yves Dabila, Saad Agouzoul, Robbe Quirynen, Deni Hočko, Marko Bakic, Jean Onana, Serge Tabekou, Virgiliu Postolachi and Imad Faraj.
We’re inclined to think that KV Kortrijk have it within them to create enough chances to score more than one when they play Royal Excel Mouscron, who may well find it hard to break down their defence.
We reckon that it will be a 2-0 winning margin for KV Kortrijk at the end of the match.
