Belgium – First Division A
Date: Sunday, 10th February 2019
Kick-off at 17.00 UK/ 18.00 CET
Venue: Constant Vanden Stock Stadium (Anderlecht).
This is what a quality defense could provide you with. Both teams have scored the same number of goals from their 24 appearances in the league so far, but Sporting conceded 19 goals fewer than their opponents for this tie, and as a result, is fighting for a spot in the Championship Group. Meanwhile, Essevee is struggling to stay alive in the bottom tier.
Fred Rutten’s men are easily one of the best defensive units at home too. As two-thirds of the season is over, the team has let just ten goals into their nets at the Constant Vanden Stock Stadium, and expectedly, their opposite number is famous for their leaky defense on the road, conceding at a rate of 2.5 goals per road trip.
