Our prediction for this Belgium Pro League match:
Leuven and Kortijk take on each other at Den Dreef in the opening game of the Jupiler League Matchday 26. Leuven did well to hold Standard Liege to a draw in their last league match, with the team moving closer to the playoffs berth. Marc Brys’ troops are eager to put an end to their four-game winless run in the national championship, but they face an uphill task in Friday’s clash.
Both Duplus and Schuermans remain in the recovery room, while Aguemon, Kehli, and Osabutey are rated doubtful. Kortrijk, on the other hand, aim to build on a thrilling 3-0 win over Mouscron. De Kerels have been in a fine form on the travels of late, which is surely giving fans a reason for optimism ahead of the trip to Leuven. Since D’Haene and De Sart are the only absentees in the away team, we are tempted to put our money on Kortrijk.
