Kortrijk confirmed in the previous game played how strong their are in front of their own fans, by defeated 3:1 Standard Liege and now the team has every chance to end up playing Europa League competition next season. They were playing smart football from the very beginning, having many chances created prior to 3:0 lead in 75th minute, while the visitors only managed to reduce the score five minutes later.
Coach spoke after the game that their target is to win the fourth position and Europa League ticket, adding that Gent has more options than them in their roster, but his team plays in front of their own crowd and will try to get the victory. He also added that they will be playing without much of pressure saying that it helps them a lot. Important midfielder Thomas Matton (25/5) is still sidelined with injury. Out is also much less significant midfielder Gregory Mahau. Offensive midfielder Stijn De Smet overcame injury problem he suffered against Standard and will be included into mission here.
Gent, on the other side, comes from a 2:1 home victory over Anderlecht last weekend, three pointer that was especially battled out in the second half. With this three pointer, the team continues being in a title race, as they have only two points less than leaders from Club Brugge, while the team gained significant distance to third placed Anderlecht which now remains four points.
In case of a victory today, they would climb up to the first position, as Club Brugge already lost this round’s game away to Standard Liege. No doubt that they aren’t lacking motive in front of today’s game, while coach remained calm saying that their realistic target for this season remains third position. Important striker Laurent Depoitre (34/13) is injured in the previous game and will not compete today. Left midfielder Mustapha Oussalah (6/0) is also out, but didn’t play important role in the team this season, same as substitute defender Karim Belhocine (7/0). Visiting side will be lined up in a 3-5-2 formation.
Difference between teams isn’t big in quality, if any actually. Open game should be seen here, with both teams aiming a victory in order to continue with their almost dream season so far.
