Our prediction for this Belgium Pro League match:
Stade Maurice Dufrasne will host Sunday’s football game between Standard Liege and Mouscron, the two teams who sit in the opposite halves of the table. Standard aim to retain their spot in top eight, but their displays in December have been anything but brilliant. The Red Devils are desperate to make amends for back-to-back losses to Gent and Kortrijk, and you should bear in mind that they are undefeated at home ground in the 2020/21 Jupiler League campaign.
Mouscron, on the other hand, are stuck in the relegation zone, and seeing that they have already suffered five defeats on the road this term, home win should be considered. The likes of Cop and Vanheusden are likely to miss the game with injuries for the hosts, while Boljevic and Balikwisha are rated doubtful. Dabila, Nlandu, and Saglik are unlikely to feature for the visitors.
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.
