Kortrijk vs Eupen
Belgium – First Division A
Date: Friday, 21 August 2020
Kick-off at 18:00 UK/ 19:00 CET
Venue: Guldensporen Stadion.
Either team has been finding it hard to show any kind of consistency in the last several months, and even in the last season, they had to make do with a bottom-tier finish. Particularly, the defense has been the most worrying factor for both these squads during this stretch.
In fact, they have been conceding in plenty, and the same has been in the case of their h2h clashes as well.
For these reasons, expect another high-scoring game this Friday between the two.
Kortrijk vs Eupen: Head-to-head (h2h)
- 11 of the previous 15 overall matches had goals from both teams.
- 12 of the preceding 17 encounters had three or more goals.
- The latest clash between these teams ended in a 1-2 win for the Guys.
- Eight of the former nine meetings at this stadium had goals from both teams.
- Since 2004, every single encounter at this venue have had three or more goals, except for three fixtures.
Kortrijk vs Eupen: Prediction
The Guys were winless in nine of their last ten overall match-ups, and they also had lost six of their preceding seven appearances at this venue. In fact, they have not kept a single clean sheet here in the whole of 2020, and in the past 12-month period, they have recorded a total of just three clean sheets.
On the other hand, their counterparts had just lost their latest game by conceding four goals, and they had failed to keep clean sheets in 37 of their previous 45 overall fixtures. And on the road, they have prevented their opponent from scoring just twice in the past 17 months.
Moreover, whenever these two teams have locked horns over the last two decades, a goal-fest has almost always been the final result. In fact, a game between these squads having fewer than three goals has been the rarest of rare occurrence since 2000.
Taking into account these observations, expect another of these goal-filled match-ups this Friday.
