Charleroi vs Standard Liege Prediction
The match is likely to end with minimal goals as suggested from their h2h history. Since 2016, none of their h2h meetings have seen the score go over 3 goals in a match. Their combined average in the recent ten h2h clashes is 1.1 goals. This shows that there has been little action when these two sides meet.
Besides, the new season hasn’t changed the dynamics of scoring for the home team. Their current average strikes at 1.9 goals while Liege is close to 1.4 goals per match in their schedule. As both teams express a more defensive play, under 3.5 goals in full-time will probably be the ideal choice from the goals area.
The Zebras is on an unbeaten streak this term in the league, following a 1-1 draw on the road against Mouscron in the schedule. Meanwhile, Standard Liege will visit on the back of a 2-2 draw at home with Waregem in the campaign.
In regards to the bragging rights in the game, both teams share chances. The host enjoys ground advantage and their position at the table is also intimidating. That’s why the double chance favoring Sporting Charleroi will probably be the best bet for the punters.
