St. Liege vs Gent Prediction & Betting tips
Tonight at 19:45 a new football season will begin in Belgium, in the first league, Jupiler Pro League, with the match between Standard Liege and Gent, the match that will be played on the Stade Maurice Dufrasne stadium. Last season, the two teams met three times, twice in the championship and once in the quarterfinals of the Belgian Cup. All three matches were won by Gent, 3-1 and 3-1 at home in the championship and cup match and 0-1 away in the return match of the championship.
Standard Liege had the weakest season in 20 years, finishing 14th in the standings with 36 points. After finishing 6th in the standings two seasons ago, last season the team collapsed in the standings with a very modest season. Standard also played four friendly games before the start of the new season but the results were just as weak, defeat with St Truiden, 0-2, 1-2 with RWDM 47 and 0-1 with PAOK, the only positive result being equal to B Monchengladbach, score 1-1. The new coach of Standard will be the Norwegian Ronny Deila, who came from New York City and who in the past also coached Valerenga, Celtic or Strømsgodset.
On the other hand, Gent finished the regular season in 5th place in the standings and played in a qualifying group for the Europa Conference League, where he managed to finish in first place against Genk, Charleroi and Mechelen. It was the second time in a row that Ghent had done this, after finishing the regular season 7th two seasons ago but winning the group for the Conference League. Manager Hein Vanhaezebrouck will continue for the third consecutive season on the bench of Gent. For Ghent it is the second official match of this season after playing in the Belgian Super Cup, where it lost the trophy to Club Brugge.
