Standard Liege Prediction

Standard Liege currently occupy 3rd place in the Belgian top flight and are four points adrift of 2nd placed Club Brugge but the hosts can reduce this deficit to just one point with a win here on Friday night as well as further consolidate their existing position in the Championship Round by putting further daylight between themselves and the chasing pack of Anderlecht and Gent.

Although they’ve suffered recent defeats away at Genk and Gent losing 2-0 and 2-1 respectively, Standard Liege have performed very well so far this season at their Stade Maurice Dufrasne where they’ve posted an impressive record of 9-3-1 27/13 which includes having won their last six home matches on the trot in the league.

Convincing wins over Eupen 3-0, Zulte-Waregem 4-1, Oostende 3-1, Kortrijk 2-1, Anderlecht 2-1 and Lokeren 3-1 is an impressive sequence of results, and the goals have flowed too for the hosts as midfielders M’Poku (7 goals) along with Djenepo (5 goals) and forward Emond (10 goals) have got amongst the goals so far this term.


Key-Facts – Standard Liege v Mouscron

  • Standard Liege have won their last 6 home matches on the trot
  • Mouscron have won their last 6 matches on the trot
  • Mouscron have kept just 1 clean sheet out of their 13 away matches to date


Mouscron Prediction

Royal Excel Mouscron have also been in impressive form recently in the Belgian First Division A as the visitors have racked up six straight wins in the Belgian top flight with wins over Oostende, Genk, Sporting Charleroi, Gent, Cercle Brugge and Lokeren, although four of these six wins were recorded at their Stade Le Canonnier.

Results away from home have been largely inconsistent though for Mouscron which their away record of 3-2-8 13/21 indicates, but nevertheless, the visitors will have been boosted by their recent wins at Genk and Gent, with the former being against the current First Division A league leaders.

However, as good as these recent results have been on the road, the fact remains that Mouscron have kept just one clean sheet on their travels so far this season, and have conceded 2 goals or more in 7 of their 13 away matches to date.

If Mouscron can’t keep a clean sheet away at Standard Liege, they could very well find themselves in trouble on Friday night.

Betting Tips Verdict

Standard Liege have been a very solid unit at home so far in this season’s Belgian top flight while Mouscron still need to prove they can achieve consistent results away from home.
