Antwerp vs Standard Liege by Gilles
Antwerp comes from a 1-0 defeat at Bruges. Club Brugge was not playing that well, but Antwerp still needed 4 cards in the first half to stop the attacks of Brugge, Decarli could score for Brugge after a long shot was saved from the line. Antwerp had some good chances in the last ten minutes but Brugges goalkeeper Horvath prevented the equalizer. For RAFC N'Diaye (5/0 m) is unsure, Arslanagic (9/1 d), Ghandri (1/0 m), Ofosuhene (0/0 f) and Nuñez (0/0 f) are out. (no info on selection)
Standard Liège comes from a 1-3 victory at Mouscron. Both teams were each other worth and had good opportunities to score. Standard took the lead after an owngoal from Locigno. Amallah scored at the start of the second half the equalizer and Mouscron had two chances to take the lead. Finally Sa could score after a handful of chances in 75th minute (woodwork in the first half). Edmilson scored a penalty in added time. Standard miss Bokadi (8/0 m) who underwent surgery at his knee after an injurie at Anderlecht. (no info on selection)
Antwerp play very good, especially at their home pitch. The last game at home they won 3-0 against cup winner Zulte-Waregem. Only Genk could win this season at Antwerp (3-5), topclub Anderlecht opened the season with a draw at Antwerp. Although Standard is getting better and better and is climbing the table after a poor season start, I dont think Standard is capable to take 3 points at Antwerp given the good home reputation of Antwerp. I think this match will end in a draw.
