Mechelen: Heavy program ( Recent Form: L W W D L )

KV Mechelen is waiting for a tough program. Until mid-February it will play against Standard, Charleroi, AA Ghent and Anderlecht. In between, a duel also awaits on the field of Cercle Brugge. Joachim Van Damme, The 28-year-old midfielder seems to miss a large part of the final sprint towards play-off 1, due to his injury. His loss is a loss anyway. Just before the winter break, Van Damme had a share in the narrow and important victories against KV Oostende (assist) and Mouscron (goal). KV Mechelen will have to compete against Standard this weekend without Rob Schoofs and Van Damme. One is suspended, the other is on the side for four to six weeks with a rib fracture. Wouter Vrancken is looking for solutions. The most logical would be to drop Jordi Vanlerberghe and Aster Vranckx into the team. Both midfielders made an impression in the exhibition game against Cologne. "The way Aster approached the second half as a 17-year-old was really great," said Vrancken. According to Het Laatste Nieuws, Standard Van Damme would like to be involved. The Rouches would have offered 700,000 euros, but that offer was refused by KVM. Wouter Vrancken does not intend to tolerate any loss of concentration. The KV Mechelen trainer is in control. Just ask Jules Van Cleemput, who was replaced after half an hour after a bump in the practice match against AZ. "I wanted to give a signal that everyone should be involved with football, not with peripheral issues," says the trainer.


Standard Liege: Who will score? ( Recent Form: L L L D W )

A windfall from the winter internship at Standard, it seems. A strongholder is close to a return. Samuel Bastien was able to train individually throughout the winter internship in Marbella. And so he seems to make his return to the group faster than expected. Michel Preud'homme hopes to recover him soon after the injury he sustained in the Clasico against Anderlecht. After a month of injuries, it now seems that light is shining at the end of the tunnel for Bastien, who was already very important for the Rouches this season. Seven goals and mostly important ones, nobody does better at Standard. Yet the Rouches had Renaud Emond leave for Nantes and they do not immediately have a replacement in mind. All hope lies with Obbi Oulare. "The departure of Renaud is a sum," says CEO Alexandre Grosjean. "When a club makes a bid that is around the value of the player, you must consider that. In addition to the two clubs, you take the player into account. At his age, you cannot deny Renaud a foreign transfer after all he has done for Standard. "Thirteen minutes, eight of which in the cup; Denis Dragus has not been on the field for longer than that with the main force of the Rouches. Why doesn't such a young, talented boy play? Well, the shoe pinches in two places. In the defensive changeover, he still too often picks out his moments and, more importantly, sometimes wants to make a difference himself. These are just two things that are very sensitive to Michel Preud'homme.



After all, Mechelen and Standard are separated by barely one point in the rankings. The home team fights at the top but has a hard time in-house. Fifteen points in ten matches is not much. The visitors then barely get any points outside to turn at the very top. So it will be an interesting meeting. Mechelen won the first match with 1-2. Standard's last win at the Mechelen pitch dates from 2013. Both teams have to do some puzzling in the run-up to the game. As a result, I see value in less than 2.5 goals.
