Team News: KV Kortrijk
There’s just a single fitness concern for the KV Kortrijk gaffer Yves Vanderhaeghe to be concerned about from of an almost fully healthy set of players. Brendan Hines-Ike (Muscle Injury) misses out.
In all likelihood, De Kerels may well line up in a 4-3-1-2 system this time, beginning the first half with Maxim Deman, Kristof D'Haene, Brendan Hines-Ike, Lucas Rougeaux, Petar Golubovic, Abdul Ajagun, Hannes van der Bruggen, Evgen Makarenko, Julien de Sart, Ilombe Mboyo and Jovan Stojanović.
Team News: Waasland-Beveren
Thanks to a largely available group of players, there is only the one fitness worry for the Waasland-Beveren manager Nicky Hayen to be concerned about. Din Sula (Inflamed ligaments of the knee) won’t be in action.
There’s a good chance that Wase Wolven will likely begin the game with a 4-2-3-1 formation, starting the game with Brent Gabriel, Jur Schryvers, Maximiliano Caufriez, Aleksandar Vukotic, Daam Foulon, Matthias Verreth, Nikola Pejcic, Denzel Jubitana, Yuki Kobayashi, Joseph Efford and Stefan Milosevic.
KV Kortrijk will most probably score at least once when they play Waasland-Beveren, who may well find it hard to find the back of the net.
Therefore, we are anticipating a decent 2-0 winning score for KV Kortrijk by the time that the referee blows the final whistle.
