Our prediction for this Belgium Pro League match:
Stade Maurice Dufrasne will host Friday’s football game between St Liege and Charleroi, the two top-table sides. The Red Devils are eyeing their third consecutive league win, and they are likely to stick to their attacking style of play. Philip Zinckernagel, who scored a brace in a 2-0 win over Genk, will be the man to watch in the home team, while Gilles Dewaele misses out with an ACL injury. Fellow defender Nathan Ngoy is a major doubt.
The Black and Whites, on the other hand, are eyeing their fourth consecutive league win. Charleroi are eager to stay in top eight, but beating Standard in Liege is easier said than done. Taking everything into account, we believe that there is a big value in betting on draw. Stelios Andreou limped off with injury in a 3-2 win over Waregem, with Joris Kayembe likely to step up.
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.
