Royal Antwerp have found their groove and they are expected to edge a victory against Sporting Charleroi on Friday evening.
Sporting Charleroi come from the back of two successive draws in the league as they have slipped down to 4th in the league table. They have been playing well as a team in recent games, but they are unable to find the final touch to grant them goals.

On the other hand, the away side will be looking to add a setback to the progress of the home team as they themselves look to get on a run of wins after hammering Standard Liege 5-2 away from home. The confidence of the away side will be high as they look to cause another upset in the league this season.
