Charleroi Prediction – Can Charleroi keep momentum going?

4th placed Sporting Charleroi have a golden opportunity to grab all three points in this Friday night clash against lowly Oostende and in turn, could lift themselves up into 2nd spot behind runaway leaders, Club Brugge in the process.

Charleroi are currently enjoying a solid spell of form in the Belgian top flight as the hosts are now unbeaten in their last 10 matches overall in the First Division A, and this includes winning 7 of these last 10 matches as well.

Form and results on home turf at their Stade du Pays de Charleroi have also been steady as Charleroi possess a home record of 6-1-2 13/8 which includes winning their last 4 home matches on the trot which has helped the hosts up into the top four of the division.

Victories against Royal Excel Mouscron, Eupen, Waasland-Beveren and Cercle Brugge have been reasonable enough, but in addition, they’ve all been to nil too.

Oostende Prediction – Can Oostende match Charleroi?

Friday night’s visitors, Oostende, find themselves in the lower reaches of the First Division A table as they sit in a disappointing third from bottom position ahead of this important clash against high-flying Charleroi.

Recent results have produced mixed returns for Oostende as they’ve picked up wins against Anderlecht 3-2 and a 2-1 win against Gent, but they’ve also tasted defeat in losses against Club Brugge, Eupen and Mechelen.

It’s worth noting that both of the recent wins were recorded on home turf at their Versluys Arena (where they’ve won 4 of their total of 5 wins to date this season), while all three of the aforementioned defeats were incurred on their travels.

Indeed, results away from home throughout this Belgian top flight campaign for Oostende have been extremely disappointing as the visitors hold an away record of 1-1-8 6/18 which includes losing their last 7 away matches on the trot – 5 of these 7 defeats also being to nil.

  • Charleroi have won their last 4 home matches on the trot (all to nil)
