In this competition, they haven’t won any of the last 9 away matches.

In their away mathes there is a tendency for goals, since 7 of the last 9 matches for this competition have ended with Over 2,5 goals. This is a team that has had a hard time trying to score first.

The poor performance that Cercle Brugge has been performing on the field ends up directly reflecting its position on the table. Today the team is in the last position, that is, it is belching a place in the relegation zone. It is obvious that just like any club, Cercle Brugge does not want to fall from division, but will need to show a much better performance to stay in the elite. It will be necessary to show more competence in the field, having attitude and quality in their games, because only in this way can find the path for good results. In this match Dylan De Belder and Miguel Van Damme will be left out for being in the medical department.

Betting suggestion:

Charleroi's desire is to stay within the qualifying zone and this round will have a great chance of reaching its goal as it will face a less qualified team than its own. The visitors are having a hard time on the field and will need to overcome. We believe the home team is a strong favorite and will show why from the beginning minutes. We will bet on Charleroi's victory until the end of the first stage.
