Belgium – Jupiler League
Date: Sunday, 28 October 2018
Kick-Off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Freethiel Stadion (Beveren).
The away side are currently 13th in the league with a single win in the 11 rounds played.
Ampomath is their top scorer with 5 goals and he also has an assist to his name.
Thy shared the spoils with Club Brugge in their last game in the league. The 88th minute goals from Vellios got them a much needed point. Another major role was played by their goalkeeper Roef who made 7 saves to deny the opponents from scoring.
Coach Yannick Ferrera is on the hot-seat and did not have much to for his team in the previous matches. He has to rethink his tactics and maybe rotate the squad to find the winning combination to prevent a possible relegation.
Antwerp are sitting comfortably in the 4rth position after a 2-1 home in against Lokeren, with Haroun and Refaelov finding the net.
The great Old managed by Federic Leidgen was 8th in the last season and their recent performances are not suited for 4 time champs in the Jupiler League.
In the match in February a goal from Angban and a penalty goal from Thelin shifted the game in the winners favor and the consolation for Antwerp was scored by Oulare in the 18th minute.
