Beerschot vs Standard Liege
Belgium – First Division A
Date: Sunday, 30 August 2020
Kick-Off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Olympisch Stadion (Antwerp)
It seems like a dream when a team that finished fifth in the second division is at the top of the league table in their first season after promotion to the top. With just three rounds in, we see Beerschot winning all three games and strengthening the foundation for the new campaign. They started with the win over Oostende and the latest one was a shocker against the reigning champs Club Brugge. With six goals they are the top scorers currently and this upcoming game will not be easy for them.
The team from the city of Liege finished fifth last year. They are unbeaten in this new season and is coming into this game after the home draw with Genk. With only one goal given away, they have the best defense so far which will be crucial against this particular opponent.
Beerschot vs Standard Liege: Head-to-head (h2h)
- These will the first competitive meeting between these two teams.
- Liege is unbeaten in the last four league matches across various venues.
- The home side is on a four-match winning streak in all competitions.
Beerschot vs Standard Liege: Prediction
The home team has won all four recent games in all competitions. The highlight in that spell of play is that three of them were played away from home. In this short span of time in the top division they have shown their attacking talent breaking through the defenses of even champions. They are currently scoring at an average of 2 goals per game. Most experienced teams at the top could not emulate such a spirited show so far. So I think the home team will score against this tie.
The majority of recent away games that Liege took part in had huge score lines. In fact, seven of their eight matches on the road had more than 2.5 goals in total. We can see a similar scoreline in three recent home fixtures of Beerschot as well. So I am backing a high scoring game with both teams scoring goals.
