Sporting Charleroi vs Anderlecht
Belgium – Jupiler Pro League
Date: Saturday, 19 December 2020
Kick-off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Stade du Pays de Charleroi.
The Purple and White are currently placed fifth in the table, and have been consistent in their last several match-days – which has helped them to possess such a high spot in the table.
However, they are targeting a top-three position, and they need a surplus of one point to get into the podium. Do also note that they are just four points away from toppers Club Brugge as well.
This weekend, Vincent Kompany’s men are pitted against the struggling Zebras. And it needs to be mentioned that the latter are placed third in standings.
As such, the Purple and White will be doubly motivated this weekend, since a win will surely guarantee them a jump in the league table.
On top of that, they also have a good record in h2h clashes over the years against this rival.
Likely, expect Anderlecht to emerge victorious this Saturday at the Stade du Pays.

Sporting Charleroi vs Anderlecht: Prediction
The Zebras were winless in ten of their previous thirteen games, and remained so in six of their last seven appearances at home (four of these were also losses).
On the other hand, their counterparts were unbeaten in 16 of their previous 18 match-ups, and they have lost just twice on the road since February.
On top of that, Kompany’s men had also registered 31 of the past 39 overall h2h wins, and are unbeaten against them since 2017.
Taking these observations into account, expect Anderlecht to dominate proceedings this weekend.
