Sporting Charleroi vs Anderlecht
Belgium – First Division A
Date: Sunday, 12 August 2018
Kick-Off at 17:00 UK / 18:00 CET
Venue: Stade du Pays de Charleroi, Charleroi.
Anderlecht ended the last season empty-handed in the battle for the top-two finish as Club Brugge and Standard Liege made it to the Champions League.
However, they look determined to regain the domestic crown this term as they notched as many as nine goals in two demolishing victories over Kortrijk and KV Oostende at the start of the new First Division A season.
Can the Purple & White continue such hot run of form and maintain the perfect record when they travel to Stade du Pays de Charleroi on Sunday afternoon?
The Zebras, who featured the Championship Round last time out, will definitely be a much more serious challenge than the sides Anderlecht played so far.
The hosts began the season with a surprising home loss to Antwerp on the opening day, but they quickly bounced back last weekend when they netted as many as four past AS Eupen in a demolishing away victory.

- Overall, Anderlecht lead the H2H tie by 21 wins ahead of their 52nd meeting with Charleroi.
Charleroi vs Anderlecht: Prediction
We could definitely be in for a thrilling evening of football between two sides who’ve combined the tally of nine goals in last weekend’s fixtures.
Felice Mazzu will be desperate to find the way to stop Ivan Santini here as the Croatian striker notched two hat-tricks in two opening games of the season.
He completed a brace in the friendly against Ajax as well confirming the amazing form. He is proving out to be a fantastic addition to this Anderlecht side.
We just have to go for the away win bet at the odds of 2.00 here knowing that the visitors have been thriving in the final third at the start of the season.
You will not make a mistake backing the Over 25 goals FT bet as well at quite attractive 1.80 odds.
