Sporting Charleroi vs Anderlecht
Belgian First Division A
Date: 26 December 2022, Monday
Kick-off at 19:45 UK / 20:45 CET
Venue: Stade du Pays de Charleroi (Charleroi).
Sporting Charleroi will host Anderlecht in the last game of Monday’s First Division A schedule at Stade du Pays de Charleroi.
The match will be especially interesting for Felice Mazzu who was sacked by Anderlecht in late-October.
He then took over Frank Defays on Charleroi’s bench a month later and will now lead them against his former team in one of the most exciting Gameweek No 18 ties in First Division A.
Anderlecht finally signed their new manager Brian Riemer at the start of this month after being led by caretaker manager Robin Veldman in the last couple of months.
Nevertheless, we must say that Anderlecht looked great in Riemer’s official debut on the bench last Wednesday when they offered a great overall display in the cup tie against Genk.
Anderlecht were the better team on the pitch throughout the 90 minutes of play on the occasion but got unlucky to lose the extra-time 1-0 after conceding the only goal from their rivals’ second shot on target.
The visitors will thus enter this game in much higher spirits than Sporting Charleroi who have looked poor in their recent friendlies against Besiktas and Reims.
If we count both competitive and non-competitive affairs, Charleroi lost four games on the spin, conceding three or more goals in three of these four outings in the process.
