Gent vs Standard Liege
Belgian First Division A
Date: 23 December 2022, Friday
Kick-off at 19:30 UK / 20:30 CET
Venue: Ghelamco Arena (Gent).

Gent will be looking to translate their form from mid-season friendlies to the competitive games on Friday evening when they host Standard Liege in the 18th round of First Division A.

Hein Vanhaezebrouck’s men demolished Heerenveen 4-1 in a friendly played nine days ago.

If we count both competitive and non-competitive matches, Gent will enter this tie on the back of six subsequent victories in all competitions, including the 4-0 drubbing of Norwegian side Molde in the last round of the UEFA Europa Conference League group phase.

Gent have also done very well in the recent domestic league games, winning three and drawing one of the previous four First Division A affairs.

They are now fifth in the league standings with just six points between them and the second-placed Union Saint-Gilloise.

Standard Liege will enter this match in a completely opposite form. They dropped out of the top-six in the league table after suffering three defeats in the last four rounds.

As if it was not enough, Standard Liege continued their dismal performances during the preparations period, losing three successive friendlies ahead of this tie.

The team led by Norwegian manager Ronny Delia scored just one goal in the previous three matches and it came in a 1-4 defeat to French Ligue 1 side Nice. The other two losses were at the hands of Girona and Valenciennes.
