Sporting Charleroi vs KV Mechelen Prediction
Sporting Charleroi bounced back from a 1-0 defeat to Genk last week by taking down Zulte Waregem at home with a thumping 4-0 scorecard. The hosts were just too hot to handle in that latter clash, with Kaveh Rezaei, in particular, getting his name on the scoresheet thrice by the end of the ninety minutes.
At the moment, the home team have been placed fourth on the ladder, with a ten-point deficit separating them from their counterparts for the week.
On the other hand, KV Mechelen have not been coping well in the First Division A, as of late. The visitors have been admitting back to back defeats in their past three fixtures on the trot.
To make matters worse, the visitors have been a nervous bunch on the road this season. In fact, their most recent outing saw them lose 3-2 to bottom rock side, Cercle Brugge.
Furthermore, the guests have been at the losing end in three of their last four clashes away from home. In sharp contrast, Sporting Charleroi have picked up the win in all but one of their past seven games here.
Considering that the visitors have not come out on top in any of their last eight visits to this stadium either, Sporting Charleroi are the front runners to secure the bragging this week.
Additionally, the hosts have not been shy in finding the back of the net, especially on home soil. Impressively they have scored twenty-two goals here so far, and have kept a clean sheet in each of their past eight games as well.
Meanwhile, KV Mechelen’s backline have been struggling to hold things together in their own defensive third. They have conceded seven goals from their past three outings alone.
Taking into account that the hosts have also netted two goals or more in seven of their previous eight h2h meetings here, it is certainly well within reason to count on Sporting Charleroi to win and to win big at that.
