THE TEAM NEWS

ROYAL EXCEL MOUSCRON

  • Mouscron were defeated for the sixth time in eight league matches when they went down to a 2-1 defeat away from home against Eupen last Saturday.
  • They had led 1-0 going into the closing moments of the first half against Eupen but an equalising goal deflated them and Musona scored in the second half to complete the turnaround.
  • Mouscron have conceded the opening goal in seven of their last nine league games which has been a concern for the coach so they will be aiming for a strong start in this match.

WAASLAND-BEVEREN

  • Waasland-Beveren are two points adrift at the foot of the table with only two games remaining and need to find a huge turnaround in form if they are to escape from the drop.
  • They were comfortably beaten 3-0 at home by Anderlecht last time out and have now lost each of their last six league matches with seven goals conceded in their last two fixtures.
  • Having only scored twice in their last six matches it is difficult to see where the goals that they need to win this game will come from.

THE PREDICTION

The chances of Waasland-Beveren managing to escape from relegation look to be very slim indeed such is their poor run of form and lack of goal threat. The fact that Mouscron are also struggling for form might give them some hope but the home team are more likely to find the goal needed to win this game and a narrow victory for Mouscron is the prediction in a low scoring encounter.
