Our prediction for this Belgium Pro League match:
Following a goalless draw with Charleroi, Standard Liege will be looking to get back on course in the Jupiler League when they host Seraing to their Stade Maurice Dufrasne on Sunday evening. The Red Devils are not enjoying a season to remember, but it seems as if they will not have a better chance than this to return to winning ways. You should know that Standard are eyeing their third consecutive clean sheet in the Belgian top flight.
Defender Laifis remains in the recovery room, while midfielder Peeters faces race against clock to be fit for the match. Seraing, on the other hand, experienced all sorts of problems at the back in a massive 5-0 loss to Club Brugge, which is yet another reason why we are going to put our money on the Red Devils. As for the visiting team, there are no fresh injury worries, but midfielder Mathieu Cachbach is banned for the match after he was sent off in the last league fixture.
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.
