This stadium uses the playing surface grass, unlike Sint-Truiden's home arena. The former 45 games by the guests on grass have resulted in 14 wins, 7 draws and 24 losses.

Both teams should be fairly well rested for this game, as they have had some quiet days to prepare. Hopefully this will translate into lots of action on the pitch.
