Sporting Charleroi vs Oostende
Belgium – First Division A
Date: Saturday, 15 August 2020
Kick-Off at 18:00 UK/ 19:00 CET
Venue: Stade du Pays de Charleroi (Charleroi)
The Zebras will play their home match this Saturday against Oostende. The home team has been exceptional last year finishing third and similar performance can be expected this time too. They have started well with a win over Club Brugge away from home. A win against the champions at their own backyard is something every club would dream of.
As expected, Oostende lost their opening game to the newbie Beerschot. It seems they have not learned anything from the last campaign. The defensive errors have been following them throughout the last season. So they must be careful in this upcoming game as well.
Sporting Charleroi vs Oostende: Head-to-head (h2h)
- The home team is on a two-match winning streak against this opposition.
- They have two wins and a loss in the last five head to head games.
- More than 2.5 goals were scored in three of those five games across all venues.
- Both teams found the target in three of those games as well.
- Both teams have two wins each in their last five clashes at this ground.
Sporting Charleroi vs Oostende: Prediction
The home team as dominated both their recent games with this opposition. In their opening game against the reigning Champions, they had very minimal possession but managed to take the chance they got. So we can expect them to come to Oostende with full force this weekend. Also since they are unbeaten at home in home games in all competition since last October we can be sure of the home team taking all three points from this tie.
The away team has lost all ten of their league matches on the road coming into this one. Three recent defeats saw more than 2.5 goals in total. Even against Beerschot, a similar score lien could be seen. So I am backing the home team to win with a high scoring finish to the game.
