Sporting Charleroi vs Anderlecht
Belgium – First Division A
Date: Friday, 6 April 2018
Kick-Off at 19:30 UK
Venue: Stade du Pays de Charleroi (Charleroi).
Anderlecht suffered a disappointing defeat at the start of the Championship Round in First Division A. The head coach Hein Vanhaezebrouck was highly disappointed after the clash with the direct rivals in the battle for the second place Gent. The loss came out of nowhere as Anderlecht have previously been on a splendid run of three straight wins at the end of the regular season.
Can Purple & White bounce back on Friday when they are to play Sporting Charleroi? The Zebras are only two points behind in the league ladder and another failure could push Anderlecht down to fifth place. Nonetheless, the good news for Vanhaezebrouck is Charleroi’s dreadful form of late. The hosts are winless in last nine matches failing to find the back of the net in last three.
The most recent failure happened last weekend when Standard Liege have clinched a 1-0 victory over the Zebras. The manager Felice Mazzu needs to pay special attention to Anderlecht’s talisman Lukasz Teodorczyk who has been enjoying an incredible form before the international break. The Polish forward has bagged an impressive six-goal tally in three straight wins for Anderlecht at the end of the regular season. He will no doubts be the key man for the visitors and he is our top suggestion for the anytime goalscorer picks.
Sporting Charleroi vs Anderlecht: Head-to-head
Anderlecht have been the dominant force in the history of H2H games with Sporting Charleroi.
Purple & White have won 30 and lost only 11 ahead of their landmark 50th encounter with the Zebras.
Nonetheless, the most recent history belongs to Charleroi who have won three of last four meetings with Anderlecht.
Sporting Charleroi vs Anderlecht: Prediction
The hosts will tend to keep things tight at the back given their attacking action has been almost dead of late.
The match generally has a massive importance for both sides and we do expect to see a huge battle mainly at the center of the court.
A single goal might well prove out to make the difference. We believe it should be enough for Anderlecht to return on the winning ways after a loss to Gent in the previous round.
