Belgian Pro League - KAS Eupen vs Standard Liege Preview

Analysis:

Eupen will take to the pitch with visiting club Standard Liège at Kehrwegstadion in the First Division A clash on Wednesday.

KAS Eupen
Eupen enter this game following a 1-1 First Division A draw vs KV Kortrijk. It’s not been often in recent games where Eupen haven’t conceded. The reality is that Eupen have seen their defence breached in 6 of their previous 6 clashes, giving up 14 goals along the way.


Standard Liege
In the game prior to this, Standard Liège drew 2-2 in the First Division A match with Club Brugge. Standard Liège have been dangerous up front leading up to this encounter, scoring 8 goals in their previous 6 matches. While their manager Luka Elsner will no doubt take that as a positive sign, Standard Liège have been somewhat leaky at the back, having also been scored against in 6 of those same matches. In any event, we’ll just have to find out whether the trend might be sustained in this next match or not.

Verdict:
In our view, Standard Liège and Eupen could end up without much reward for their efforts here. Little in this one, and it’s almost too close to call. Therefore, we predict a 0-0 draw by the conclusion of this game.
