Belgium – First Division A
Date: Tuesday, 23 January 2018
Kick-Off at 19:30 UK
Venue: Stade Le Canonnier (Mouscron).
Mid-table neighbours Royal Excel Mouscron and Kortrijk are to take on each other in mid-week’s First Division A action on Tuesday evening at Stade Le Canonnier. Neither of the two sides can be happy with the start of the year as they’ve both suffered defeats at the weekend to stay locked on 26 points each after 22 rounds of the competition.
Mouscron could not do much to avoid the second consecutive defeat on the road as they’ve fallen to Sporting Charleroi 2-0 on Friday evening. Things look better at home, though, since Rednic’s men have picked up back-to-back victories at Stade Le Canonnier (against KV Oostende and Zulte-Waregem).
Making it three on the troit in front of the home fans will require stopping the French striker Teddy Chevalier who has been fantastic netting 10 goals so far in the season for Kortrijk. He has notched four goals in last four league ties, including one in weekend’s 2-1 away loss at Oostende. The defeat has ended Kortrijk’s impressive streak of four straight wins in all competitions.
The manager Glen De Boeck can generally be thrilled with his side’s superb attacking form at the end of the last year as the visitors have bagged two or more goals in each of outings during the mentioned four-win run.
