Sporting Charleroi vs Royal Antwerp Prediction & Match Preview

Sporting Charleroi vs Royal Antwerp
Belgium – First Division A
Date: Sunday, 30 August 2020
Kick-Off at 17:15 UK/ 18:15 CET
Venue: Stade du Pays de Charleroi (Charleroi)

Two of the best performers from the last edition of the Jupiler League will face off this Sunday. The home team has been exceptional winning all three rounds. They have one of the best defenses that had only conceded once so far like Standard Liege.

But the same cannot be said about the visitors. They are eighth in the table and have only one win so far. They opened the season with a home draw with Mouscron. They went on to lose the following match against Cercle Brugge and finally won the latest fixture against Gent.  Since they have lost the only away game and the home teams are in form they will have a hard time in this tie.

Sporting Charleroi vs Royal Antwerp: Head-to-head (h2h)

  • Both sides have two wins each in their five previous meetings.
  • Both sides found the back of the net in four consecutive games during that period.
  • More than 2.5 goals were scored in three of those five matches across various venues.
  • The visitors have three wins and a loss in their five latest visits to this ground.

Sporting Charleroi vs Royal Antwerp: Prediction

The head to head history does not give either side the clear upper hand. But considering the present form, the home side can be seen as favorites in this tie. They have won all the league matches till now and have kept a tidy defensive work as well. The Zebras have not lost at home in any fixture since October 2019. On the other hand, the visitors have lost the only away game they played so far. So I think the hosts will have the last laugh on Sunday.

As we have seen the hosts have one of the best defenses so far. They have conceded in only one game which was away from home. In some of their previous meetings at this ground, only one team was able to find the target. So I am backing the home team to win with only one side getting the goals.
