Our prediction for this Belgium Pro League match:
Standard Liege and Charleroi square off against each other at Stade Maurice Dufrasne in the Jupiler League round 17. The Red Devils are two points behind top eight in the Jupiler League standings, meaning that they are likely to go for a win in Sunday’s clash. Even though all Bodart, Gavory, and Peeters have been struggling with injuries, we are positive that Standard are going to grab something from the match as they are undefeated in the previous three home games.
The Black and Whites, on the other hand, have been having their ups and downs of late, with the team beating both Cercle Brugge and Eupen, while losing to Royale Union SG and Anderlecht. Anyhow, Standard and Charleroi seem to be evenly matched at the moment, and we believe that there is a big value in betting on draw.
Highlighted Player (Mehdi Carcela-González):
Despite being born in Liege, Belgium on July 1, 1989, Mehdi Carcela represents Morocco on the international stage. Carcela initially chose to play for his country of birth Belgium, taking part in two friendlies with the Red Devils, but in February 2011 he made his debut with Morocco.
He represented Morocco at the 2018 FIFA World Cup finals in Russia, but the African side failed to make it to the knockout stages of the showpiece tournament. Speaking of his club career, Mehdi Carcela played for the likes of Standard Liege, Anzhi, Benfica, Granada and Olympiakos (on loan). He currently plays for Standard Liege on loan from Granada.
Mehdi Carcela’s main position is right winger, but he is capable of playing as both attacking midfielder and left winger as well. In the 2008/2009 season the Morocco international won the Belgian Pro League with Standard and seven seasons later he repeated the success with Benfica as the Eagles won Primeira Liga. His preferred foot is left.
