Lokeren vs Kortrijk
Belgium – First Division A
Date: Saturday, 17th February 2018
Kick-off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Daknamstadion (Lokeren).
Lokeren has not been having a fair run this season. They are currently in the 14th position in the league standings. In their previous five matches, they have only won once. Additionally, they have lost 2 of their previous 3 home matches courtesy of two defeats by both gent and St. Liege. Lokeren has also failed to win in 9 of their 10 previous home Jupiler league matches. This match will not be an easy home game. Lokeren will lack the presence of their top players and this also adds to the factors that could lead to a loss at home this weekend.
The away side will look forward to winning in this matchup to keep alive their hopes of climbing to the top of the table. Currently, they are in the seventh place in the league standings with 36 points. They have won 2 of their last 3 league games and a draw in the third match. The team has been able to keep a clean sheet in 4 of their latest Jupiler league matches. They may also be striving to win this game mainly to bring back their away winning streak which was cut short by Genk.
