Our prediction for this Belgium Pro League match:
Antwerp and Charleroi face each other at Bosuilstadion in what is expected to be one of the most exciting games of Sunday’s program. Antwerp have been having their ups and downs of late, with the team losing to Standard Liege, beating Eupen, while sharing the spoils with Genk in their last league fixture. Brian Priske’s troops are eager to stay in top four, but beating Charleroi is easier said than done.
Defender Ritchie De Laet is banned for the hosts, Benson Manuel has been tested positive for coronavirus, while Abdoulaye Seck is on international duty. The Black and Whites, on the other hand, experienced all sorts of problems at the back in a 3-0 loss to Leuven before the New Year break, which is probably the main reason why we are tempted to put our money on Antwerp. All Stelios Andreou, Vakoun Issouf Bayo, Joris Kayembe Ditu, and Marco Ilaimaharitra are sidelined through illness for the visiting side.
