Waasland-Beveren vs Standard Liege Prediction
Waasland-Beveren slumped further down the table last week after Genk ran riot over them with a 4-1 scorecard on the road. The hosts have now admitted defeat in each of their last three fixtures on the trot, and have just one win to boast of from their past five as well.
At the moment, the home side are sitting fifteenth in a cluster of sixteen, just three points shy of hitting rock bottom.
Meanwhile Standard Liege were at the losing end of a 3-1 scorecard against Royal Antwerp in the Belgium Cup earlier this week. Be that as it may, the guests have been faring well in their first division clashes.
They are currently unbeaten in their last four fixtures in the top flight, the most recent of which was a 1-1 draw at home against Anderlecht. On the road, the visitors have looked just as menacing.
Standard Liege have not stumbled in any of their past three outings in all competitions. They have been at the losing end just thrice in the league so far too.
In sharp contrast, home advantage has been nothing short of a myth for Waasland-Beveren this season. They have just one win to their name here and have failed to secure the bragging rights in each of their last four on the trot.
As such, it will take nothing short of a miracle for the hosts to cause an upset in this one.
Furthermore, the visitors have scored two goals or more in five of their last nine outings, and have racked up fifteen goals to their tally so far.
On the other hand, Waasland-Beveren have been far too easy to breach, even on home soil. They have conceded twenty-three goals as of now, which is seven more than any other side in the cluster.
Taking into account that two of their previous three h2h meetings here have also been high scoring affairs, count on a combined total of at least three goals or more on the charts this weekend.
