THE TEAM NEWS

GENT

  • Second-placed Gent will be looking to return to winning ways having lost 1-0 away from home against Cercle Brugge last time out with a goal inside of the opening minute settling the contest.
  • They pressed hard after falling behind against Cercle Brugge but could not find the breakthrough with Cercle's 'keeper Lennart Moser standing firm against all that was put in front of him.
  • Gent are a tough team to beat on home soil and have a fantastic home record in the league this season with 11 wins and three draws from their 14 fixtures.

SPORTING CHARLEROI

  • Sporting Charleroi are currently in third place and they narrowed the gap with Gent to four points with a 2-0 home victory against Standard Liege last Sunday.
  • Although Charleroi’s home form has been excellent, they have not recorded a win on the road since the end of November and it’s a run of six games where they have only scored three goals.
  • It is possible only one change will be made from the last match with midfielder Marco Ilaimaharitra ruled out through suspension.

THE PREDICTION

Gent suffered a setback when they lost to Cercle Brugge last time out but they were up against well motivated opponents and were given an uphill task when they conceded in the opening minute of the game. Gent are predicted to bounce back with a win in this game, their home form is very strong and they should have enough firepower to overcome a Sporting Charleroi team who are struggling to find the net on their travels. A 2-0 win is the prediction.
