AS Eupen form and stats

AS Eupen's struggle is real here at Stadion am Kehrweg with only 9 points collected from 9 Pro League games. The win-draw-lost numbers are ugly: 2-3-4. Two defeats in a row at home hurts for Eupen, their manager B. San José Gil and the supporters. There are certain expectations for improvement.

AS Eupen has scored 12 league goals at home this season, in 9 matches. Eupen have conceded 18 goals in these home games, a significant number.

A new game in only four days for Anderlecht, the Pro League home match versus Sporting Charleroi. Busy days.
