KV Mechelen – St. Liege : Preview & Prediction
Important match this Friday in Belgium! Standard de Liège, fifth, moves onto the lawn of Mechelen, sixth, for a meeting that promises to be essential in the qualification race for the Playoffs 1. As a reminder, in the Belgian Pro League, the first six after the regular season meet in a new mini-championship from March, which will decide the champion and the qualifiers in European cups. As you will have understood, the important thing is to stay in the top six for the Rouches like the Kavé, and the match which is announced this weekend promises a meeting of high intensity. In perdition before the break, Liège will want to start the year off on the right foot, and the men of Preud’homme also seem capable of doing so, against an opponent who shines more outside than at home this season . Since the start of the 2019-2020 fiscal year, KV Mechelen has only won 40% of its championship matches at home, which ultimately remains low for a contender for Europe. Beaten on their lawn during the first leg (1-2), Standard players can therefore believe in revenge.
Mechelen have won only 2 of their last 8 Pro League games at home.
Against the Top 6 teams, Mechelen has won only 3 of its 7 oppositions this season.
Standard recovered during the break, with a draw against Dortmund and a success against PEC Zwolle in friendlies.
The Rouches have lost only one of their last four official trips.
Rob Schoofs, a key player in Mechelen, will be suspended for the game.
86% of Standard’s matches have had +1.5 goals this season.
Mechelen has also had 86% +1.5 goals this season.
The last 4 duels between Mechelen and Standard have had at least 2 goals.
Back in the fresh and available championship, the Standard could take points in Mechelen this Friday evening. In an encounter that we imagine with at least two goals, the Rouches should make at least zero according to our Belgian football specialists.
