Standard Liege vs RFC Seraing
Belgium – First Division A
Date: Sunday, 13 March 2022
Kick-off at 20:00 UK / 21:00 CET
Venue: Stade Maurice Dufrasne.
Standard Liège having not finished outside one of the playoffs spots in the preceding four seasons are now likely to finish in the bottom half of the table. Their form in recent games have been especially worrying.
They were able to hold sporting Charleroi away from home to a scoreless game in their previous league outing. This marked the fourth time in five games, the team had dropped points.
Further registering three losses and a win from those games, the club is now 13th in the league, ten points clear of their opponents for this weekend.
RFC Seraing have been terrible over the last few weeks and have managed just a win and a draw for themselves since December. Although they can mathematically avoid the relegation playoffs, it is unlikely we see that happening, nor are we likely to see them drop to the bottom position.
Their most recent fixture came at home against Club Brugge, in which they were embarrassed by a 0-5 defeat. Having a man sent off in the 41st minute was the beginning of the end for the club in that fixture.
They are now in 17th position and have a six point deficit to overturn if they want to avoid the playoffs.
Standard Liege vs Seraing Head-to-head
These teams have met twice before, with both coming in 2021. While their Cup fixture ended 4-1 in favour of Standard, they won their league fixture as well by a score line of 1-0.
Standard Liege vs Seraing Prediction
Les Rouches have managed a meagre five points in their last five home games. However, I do see them sealing the result against a club that is on a seven match losing streak in league fixtures away from home.
The hosts have managed clean sheets in all of their wins at home in the league this season. Their opponents meanwhile have scored just a goal in their previous six league fixtures away from home. Therefore, expect a clean sheet from the hosts.
