Kortrijk Prediction – Can Kortrijk grind out win?

13th placed Kortrijk have no immediate fears of relegation despite their lowly league position in the Belgian top flight as they possess an 8-point cushion above bottom club, Cercle Brugge, ahead of this weekend’s First Division A action.

However, the hosts find themselves stuck in a rut in the domestic top flight as they’ve now gone 7 matches without a win, a poor sequence of results which includes 5 defeats and 2 draws which has slowly seen the hosts slide down the table.

It’s been a difficult and frustrating campaign for Kortrijk as wins have been sporadic rather than regular with their last success being back-to-back home wins in October over Sint-Truiden 4-0 and a 2-0 win against Zulte-Waregem, but they’ve since lost their last 3 on the trot.

Indeed, having won 3 of their total of 4 wins this season on home turf at their Guldensporenstadion amidst an overall record of 3-2-4 17/15, it looks as though their home form is what will keep them afloat this term, but don’t back them for the win anytime soon – instead, 6 of Kortrijk’s 9 home matches have seen both teams score.

Mouscron Prediction – Can Mouscron close gap on top six?

All three points for Mouscron on Friday night at Kortrijk would actually see 9th placed Mouscron leapfrog Genk into 8th place and reduce the points deficit on 6th placed Zulte-Waregem to just 2 points, so there’s plenty of incentive for Friday night’s visitors to be in a positive frame of mind for this clash.

With just 1 defeat out of their last 6 matches, Mouscron seem to be on a more even keel than their hosts prior to this upcoming clash on Friday night with their one defeat being a 1-0 loss away at First Division A leaders, Club Brugge, but otherwise the results have been solid enough.

Recent draws with Cercle Brugge 2-2, Oostende 2-2, Genk 2-2 and Standard Liege 2-2 have been complemented by a 3-1 home win over Antwerp and these recent results show that the visitors possess some pretty reliable firepower too.

However, before you start thinking of backing them here, they possess a poor away record of 1-4-4 10/15 on their travels and are without a win from their last 8 matches, but 6 of their 9 away matches have seen both teams score as well.


Key-Facts – Kortrijk vs Mouscron
