Ostend and Kortrijk will come face to face in the match of the 16th round of the Belgian Championship. On whose side will luck turn out to be?
In the round before last, Ostend managed to score three points, beating Zulte-Waregem 2-1 at home, and thanks to this success, it got out of the relegation zone. But it was not possible to consolidate the success, and already in the next round there was an away defeat from Brugge. At the same time, it should be noted that Ostend played quite well in attack, striking two effective shots, but failed in defense, conceding four goals. Before the start of the 16th round, Ostend has 14 points and takes 14th place.
In the three previous matches, Kortrijk met the final whistle only once with a lag in the score, losing at home to Westerlo (0-2), and scored a point in the other two. First, he broke up with Charleroi (2-2), and then shared points with Cercle Brugge (1-1). But even this is not enough, because "Kortrike" is fighting for survival, and so far it is in the three worst, being in the sixteenth position with twelve points.
Statistics and figures:
- Ostend lost in three of the previous four rounds;
- "Kortrijk" lost in one round out of the last three;
- Kortrijk won against Ostend in three previous matches.
Ostend has not won against Kortrijk for a long time, so it's time to fix the situation. Ostend often stumbles, but on its own field it is able to win against an even more unstable Kortrijk.
