Gent comes from a very important narrow victory away from home against Kortrijk last weekend with a 1:0 result. Only goal was scored in 65th minute of the game with an own goal from Chanot. Even though it was a lucky goal for them, there was no doubt that the points were deserved and that the visiting side was better on the field.
With this victory they continued their dream season with three victories in last four rounds played. Moreover, they now took over the first position, being a point ahead of Club Brugge and four points ahead of third placed Anderlecht, as it seems that they will be title contenders till the very last stage. Four rounds till the end, they are very close to secure the Champions League ticket and no doubt that the players are fired up and shouldn’t blow such a great chance in home matches. Important striker Laurent Depoitre (34/13) is suspended for this game, while the hosts also miss right winger Benito Raman (28/7). Left back Mustapha Oussalah (6/0) is still out injured, while the hosts will be playing in a 3-5-2 formation with Pedersen (7/3) and Simon (14/7) upfront.
Charleroi, on the other side, currently stands at sixth position with a point less than fifth placed Kortrijk that will be going to Europa League. Most recently, they suffered a narrow 0:1 defeat at home against Anderlecht, with only goal being scored in 21st minute via Najar. They were completely outplayed during the match and it was a surprise not to see them conceding more during the match.
This was second consecutive defeat for them, as the team surely will remain battling for the fifth place till the end. Away from home, they have only one draw and two defeats at play-off stage, so this game surely won’t be any easy for them. Very important central defender Sebastian Dewaest (35/3) is injured and won’t play here, while suspended is important defensive midfielder Damien Marcq (26/0). Striker Lynel Kitambala (27/5) won’t be playing due technical reasons, while the visitors will be employing a bit more defensive 4-2-3-1 formation, with Coulibaly (18/2) as their only striker upfront.
As said, Gent is having a dream season and everything except their easy victory here would be a huge surprise. With the way Charleroi plays against strongest sides away from home, they shouldn’t stay much competitive away to Gent. Even though they miss two important offensive players, I believe the team is capable of getting easier victory here than the bookies predict.
