Our prediction for this Belgium Pro League match:
Charleroi play host to Mechelen at their Stade du Pays de Charleroi in the Jupiler League round 17. The Black and Whites continue to struggle on the road, but they did well to beat Antwerp in their last home game in the national championship. Daan Heymans is pushing for a start after scoring as a substitute in a 4-1 loss to Genk, while Stefan Knezevic remains in the recovery room.
Mechelen, on the other hand, dropped a two-goal advantage in a 2-2 draw with Waregem. The visitors are eager to return to winning ways as soon as possible, but seeing that Charleroi are a real force to be reckoned with at home, we predict that the visitors are going to return to the Antwerp province empty-handed. Both Dimitri Lavalee and Lucas Bijker are out of contention with injuries for the away team.
