Charleroi vs Gent by Gilles
Charleroi comes from a 3-0 loss at Oostende on Tuesday. Charleroi made some mistakes in defense on Oostendes captain Capon, who could score a hattrick. In attack Charleroi hardly had any good chances. Pollet will return to selection after he was left out becos of bad performances at Lokeren. Nurio is suspended after he took a 5th yellow at Oostende.
Selection Charleroi (not official): Mandanda, Penneteau; Dessoleil, Marinos, Martos, N'Ganga, Zajkov; Baby, Benavente, Diandy, Fall, Ilaimaharitra, Lukebakio, Saglik, Tainmont; Bedia, Pollet and Rezaei
Out: Nurio (11/0 d, suspended), Willems (0/0 d) and Remacle (0/0 f)
Gent had an easy game at home against Eupen, in the first half the end score was already on the board (3-0) with 2 penalties for Gent. Simon was again very eager on the pitch. New coach Vanderhaeghe started with 7 on 9 for Gent. Vanderhaeghe can not count on Esiti who will miss this match because he took his 5th yellow against Eupen. Former Charleroi player Marcq is named as replacement, but Matton or B. verstraete is also possible says Vanderhaeghe.
Pre-selection Gent: Andrijasevic, Asare, Bronn, Czekanowitz, Dejaegere, Dussenne, Foket, Gigot, Horemans, Kalinic, Kalu, Kubo, Machado, Marcq, Matton, Milicevic, Mitrovic, Simon, Sylla, Thoelen, B. Verstraete and Yaremchuk
Out: Esiti (11/0 m, suspended, 5th yellow), Neto (0/0 m), Saief (0/0 m) and L. Verstraete (3/1 m)
This looks like a match with high possibility to end draw. In the last 6 confrontations it ended 3 times 1-1. Charleroi is desperate in need of points after 2 on 9. Gent will try to go take points to get closer to top 6. With Charlerois bad form and Gents good form, I favor Gent in this matchup, but I rather bet Draw, Gent Win No Bet then Gent DNB. Charleroi also has a good home reputation and lost only from leader Club Brugge at home pitch.
