The appointment of Ronny Deila immediately led to a major improvement in Standard Liege’s performances and results as they propelled themselves up the table and into the top eight and the European playoff spots.
The home team have endured a difficult end of season ‘split’, though. They come into this penultimate match day on the back of collecting just two points in their last four matches.
Their most recent outing was a 3-0 hammering at Westerlo, in which they went behind early on and completely lost control of the match to a side that were only promoted to the top-flight last season.
Cercle Brugge managed to finish inside the top eight and the European playoff spots ahead of the ‘split’ but the visitors have endured a difficult UEFA Europa Conference League playoff group campaign with just one win in their four matches.
The away team led twice at Gent last weekend but were pegged back and forced to share a 2-2 draw. That result does mean they have suffered just one defeat in their last six matches and just two losses in their last nine.
Miron Muslic’s side will be pleased to have simply been entering the European playoff spots this season after a few years of decline and underperformance.
Only one team can qualify for the UEFA Europa Conference League from the second playoff group in the Jupiler Pro League and with two games of the campaign to go, Gent have already secured that spot. These are two sides simply trying to get to the end of the campaign as quickly as possible with little to play for other than pride. Both have gone against the grain in the Belgian top-flight. They have still both scored and conceded at a decent rate but Belgium is one of the highest scoring in Europe and they are below the average for the top-half clubs. A low-scoring encounter seems likely as they seek to play out the rest of the season.
TIP: UNDER 3.5 GOALS
