Kortrijk vs Standard Liege
Belgian First Division A
Date: Saturday, 15th October, 2016
Kick-off at 17:00 UK
Venue: Guldensporen Stadion (Kortrijk).

Kortrijk and Standard Liege will play one of the most interesting clashes in the 10th round of the Belgian First Division on Saturday evening. The match will be hosted at the home ground of Kortrijk, Guldensporen Stadion. There is a single point currently separating the two sides in the upper part of the league standings as none of the two teams can be proud on the most recent performances before the international matches break.

Kortrijk managed to snatch two wins in a row over Sprimont-Coblain in the cup competition and over Genk in the league match. The manager Van Lancker can be especially proud on the performance his team showed against Genk, as they demolished the great rivals on home ground 4-1. Thanks to an inspired performance by Sidy Sarr, who bagged a brace to register his seventh goal of the season.

Standard Liege on the other side, failed to score a single goal in last two matches. They lost to Ajax in the Europa League group stage and to Anderlecht at their home ground in the last round of the domestic campaign. Both defeats came on the same 1-0 narrow margin.
