The Beerschot-Wilrijk & KV Oostende managers W. Still and A. Blessin are both dreading and looking forward to this decisive game in the upper regions of the Pro League league table.

Insights:
  • Beerschot-Wilrijk have the fewest matches under the total-line (10) in Pro League
  • Beerschot-Wilrijk have scored at least twice as many goals at home as KV Oostende have scored away.

Beerschot-Wilrijk have less rest than KV Oostende in this fixture, as the hosts were involved in a Pro League game only four days ago. Thankfully the previous game, versus Sporting Charleroi, was also a home game here at Olympisch Stadion. The away team is better rested.

Beerschot-Wilrijk are staying put; they can neither be promoted or relegated this season and are fighting only for positions. KV Oostende are still fighting for top positions and their benefits.
