Oostende vs Charleroi by NidalA

Oostende are sitting at the bottom of the log with 5 points from 11 matches. This position is not a true refletion of the stuff they are made off. last two seasons they finished in the first 5 while Last season they finished 4th and played in the Europa league. So the position they found themselves in this time around is below the expectations of both the management, the fans and even tipsters. Their poor performance already cost former coach Yves Vanderhaeghe his job and was replaced by 39year old Bosnian, Adnan Custovic. Yves Vanderhaeghe fancies a 4-5-1 with Zinho Gano former Waasland-beveren deadly striker as lone striker. However, the New coach, Custovic has changed the team playing style to a 4-4-2 or 4-3-3 formation and zimbabwean player, Knowledge Musona now pairs up with Zinho Gano as his strike partner. If they switch to an all attacking stye of 4-3-3 formation, Belgian forward Brecht Capon will join the due of Musona and Gano in attack in order to get the goals that will give them their second win of the season. Their attacking style seems to be paying off because they have scored 5 goals since the arrival of Custovic.


Custovic has played 4 matches since his arrival winning 1, drawn 1 and lost 2. The match against Club Brugge should have ended in a draw as well but for the 92nd minute goal scored by Limbombe which made the match to end at 3-2 after Oostende have held it to a 2-2 draw from first half until injury time.


So today, Oostende coach will be deploying all his expertise in order to get a second win for his side. Oostende will be without influential and experienced french midfielder Franck Berrier (3 goals) and long term absentees Nicolas Rajsel and Michiel Jonckheere.


Charleroi on the other hand are enjoying the season, flying high and placed second on the table with 22 points, 8 points behind league Leaders Club Brugge. They have played 11 games won 6, draw 4 and loose 1. The only loss was a 2-1 home defeat against Club brugge. They have scored 19 goals so far and it shows they have a lethal attack that can deliver the goals at any time.


Charleroi coach Felice Mazzu will be playing a 4-5-1 formation which he mostly plays at away games and leave Iranian forward Kaveh Rezaei upfront to hit on the counter. Charleroi will only be missing defender Steeven Willems and Midfielder Jordan Remacle but the two players have not played in a long time so there absence will not be of any impact to the high flying side.


I think the goals market will be the catch in this match because there will be an open game here. Oostende eager to prove a point and move off the relegation zone, will go all out to attack and they will probably get a goal or two. Charleroi will be hitting them on the counter attack and this will definitely produce goals as well so the BTTS and Over 2.5 is a decent odd for this game and it is valued @ 2.10 at bet365


Good luck. pin
