Oud-Heverlee vs Sporting Charleroi
Belgium – First Division A
Date: Saturday, 22 August 2020
Kick-off at 17:30 UK/ 18:30 CET
Venue: Den Dreef (Heverlee).
Oud-Heverlee is playing it safe in the contest by being more defensive, and the two draws so far with the same 1-1 scoreline is the best example for that in their records.
The most recent draw in the campaign this season came on the road against Genk in the schedule. The promoted side will need more than their usual tricks to hold the fort against the Zebras.
Sporting Charleroi will come in hot against the home team with their winning streak in the league so far this season, and that too without conceding a goal after two appearances.
Karim Belhocine will lead his troops, most probably to another victory since the match is favoring them to win over the promoted side. Besides, the 1-0 win at home against Oostende last time out will probably lift the morale of the players prior to the upcoming match.

Oud-Heverlee vs Sporting Charleroi Prediction
Oud-Heverlee was third in the second division, while Charleroi shared the same spot in the First Division A last season. We can get quite a picture of the possible result from the clash from that itself.
Being a promoted side will hold the host back to get accustomed to the pace of the league. In the meantime, the Zebras are one of the best teams in the top tier, and defeating them will not be a simple task for OH Leuven.
Since the favorites are playing away from home, the goal margin is likely too slim. The tip for under 3.5 goals will thus probably be the best bet for the punters in the clash. The away win in full-time and Sporting to win either half in the game will be other suitable options for the ninety minutes.
