Charleroi lost 6th place in ranking becos Zulte-Waregem (ZW) could win match in extra time at Sint-Truiden. Charleroi is now 2 points behind ZW in ranking, they need 3 points today to get back into top 6 for play-offs.
Charleroi can use as many points as possible in last 3 games and the 2 matches after this one will even be against more difficult opponents, with match at Oostende next week and hosting Gent at Mambourg on last matchday.
Charleroi lost previous game in Walloon derby at Standard 3-0. Charleroi began good at match, they played better football then Standard and created some good chances in first 15 minutes. But Standard goalkeeper Hubert kept Standard in the game with some good saves. Standard opened the score with a header from Santini on a free kick. Standard started to play better after first goal and Charleroi could not tie in first half against a excellent Hubert. At beginning of second half Standard made second goal with long distantshot from Trebel. Charleroi tried for goal to get back into the game, but Dossevi finished the job with individual action in the box. Charleroi player Perbet was unlucky with decision referee who judged it was offside, cos he had net his 12th goal of season if referee judged correct.
Charleroi missings are François, Stevance, Galvez, Geraerts, Martos én Ninis.
Selection Charleroi: Baume, Perbet, Dessoleil, Baby, Mandanda, Mata, Penneteau, Saglik, Pollet, Willems, Tainmont, Marcq, Benavente, Ndongala, N'Ganga, Marinos, Diandy, Boulenger, Ferber, Zajkov
Last week, with unexpected win against Anderlecht (1-0) Waasland-Beveren hold 3 points at home and were for a moment left out in relegation conversations. Man of the match was Jonathan Buatu who did very good defensive job against Anderlecht. Becos of results yesterday all teams are still close together at the bottom and Waasland-Beveren is feeling heat again of relegations.
Waasland-Beveren has 29 points and can use some points to be more safe from relegations. Charleroi is highest ranked of 3 remaining teams they face, but with less days points will be more difficult to fight, they host Mechelen next week, and on last matchday they need to go to Westerlo. So they will try in Charleroi already to take 1 point or more. No easy games left so close to end of competition.
Waasland-Beveren coach Vreven need to watch game from seat between fans after troubles with referee team in match against Gent. Captain Milos Maric is suspended, Steeven Langil and Floriano Vanzo need to watch out for yellow card. Glenn Leemans and Arthur Irawan are out. Hugo Sousa is doubtful, first time in pre-selection after injury.
Selection Waasland-Beveren: Henkinet, Goblet, Demir, Moren, Buatu, Cisse, Langil, Coulibaly, Gano, Milosevic, Schrijvers, Moulin, Jans, Gaufriez, Sousa, Vanzo, Myny, M'Sila, Lumanza, Nabab
First I thought about Double Chance at (2.80), becos I thought Waasland-Bveren can surprise here with draw or maybe even win (more as safety). But the option Waasland-Beveren +1AH I found also very nice, cos for odd above 2 we have double chance option with stake refund if Charleroi wins with one goal difference. And Waasland-Beveren showed us in 2016 some good games of defensive work already (Gent, Anderlecht).
I think this will be a close game who has possibility to end in draw taking everything into account. I think my bet is very safe but at cost of lower odd (but its not without risk, can imagine Charleroi taking lead and find confidence to score more too, they have good goalscorers, remember game in Genk for Waasland-Beveren 2 matchdays ago, 6-1).
You can also try to take more risk for higher odd with X2...
My bet here is Waasland-Beveren +1AH for odd of 2.08 at Pinnacle. GL
