Backing an away win
Kortrijk have struggled to win games this year; they’ve won just one of the 10 games they’ve played the past couple of months. In fact, Kortrijk have lost five of their last six games. On the other hand, Union-Saint-Gilloise have been the best team in the league this season; they’ve lost just one of their last 15 games, with 11 wins and three draws. Additionally, Kortrijk and Union-Saint-Gilloise have met four times recently; and Saint-Gilloise won three of those encounters. Considering both teams’ respective form, Union-Saint-Gilloise should win this game.
Someone will fail to hit the net
Union-Saint-Gilloise have been by far the best defensive team in the league this season; they’ve kept five clean sheets in their last seven games in all competitions. As a matter of fact, Union-Saint-Gilloise conceded just one goal in their last six league games. It’s fair to point out that Union-Saint-Gilloise’s games have mostly been one-sided when it comes to scoring goals; at least one side failed to score in all of their last six league games. USG will be going up against a Kortrijk side that blanked in three of their last six games. Considering at least one side failed to score in all of the last four clashes between these two; we should expect a clean sheet from one of these teams.
A low scoring game
We’ve mentioned that both teams met four times in recent years; it’s fair to point out that all of those encounters saw fewer than three goals scored. Similarly, both teams have had their fair share of low scoring games; five of Union-Saint-Gilloise’s last seven, and five of Kortrijk’s last eight games went below the 2.5 goal mark. On that note, we shouldn’t expect a lot of goals in this match.
