The Cercle Brugge manager P. Clement attacks this game with the team placed 10th so far. In the visitors dressing room Sint-Truiden and their manager K. Muscat are in 14th place before this match.

Both teams have had enough rest since their last competitive action. Let's hope for an energetic game!
