KV Oostende vs Kortrijk
Belgium First Division A
Date: Saturday, 15 February 2020
Kick-Off at 19:00 UK
Venue: Versluys Arena.
After some intense action during the mid-week, Belgium First Division A resumes as usual for weekend matches.
KV Oostende’s fans are surely not happy to see their favorite squad lose four out of the last five encounters across all competitions and drop to low 14th position.
Can they once again return to winning ways against Kortrijk?
KV Oostende vs Kortrijk: Head-to-head
These two teams have met 31 times in the past and visitors have small lead in terms of victories 12-10.
The first head to head clash played this season was quite entertaining to watch, ending in a 2-2 draw. It looked like Kortrijk were going to win, but late equalizer scored by Ari Skulason from the penalty spot secured a point for Oostende.
Interestingly, seven out of the last eight encounters between them ended BTTS & Over 2.5 FT.
KV Oostende vs Kortrijk: Prediction
Visitors are going through a big crisis as well, so this might be the perfect opportunity. KV Oostende are warm favorites for the win at 2.45 rate.
Kortrijk might not have lost that many games lately, but they are only two positions above. The team has won only one out of the last nine appearances on the road, losing to St Truiden recently 0-2. The current away record is frightening at two wins, two draws and seven losses. Team’s best scorer Ilombe Mboyo might miss this game due to light injury.
Kortrijk have caused a lot of troubles to some top tier teams in the league this season. We don’t think Oostende have what it takes to win this match, so draw or away win at 1.55 seems like a reasonable choice.
Both teams to score and Over 2.5 FT is also a great option, considering poor defending and head to head history.
KV Oostende vs Kortrijk: Bet Tips
Away win or draw @ 1.55
Over 2.5 FT & BTTS @ 2.00.
