Match of the week: sponsored teams meet on matchday 29

04.03.2020

In the Belgian Pro League, there’s a Golden Palace derby about to go down! On Saturday at 8 p.m., KV Kortrijk hosts RAFC. At the same time, KV Mechelen receives the company of KAS Eupen. There are only 2 matchdays left, so with the end of the regular season is nearing, nerves are getting tense. Can the Golden Palace sponsored teams rush into the play-offs from a place they’d hoped for – or better? Let’s check the games before them this weekend and learn some key elements for a smarter bet…

KV Kortrijk – RAFC (Saturday March 7, 8 p.m.)

KV Kortrijk, the latest JPL team sponsored by your favourite sports betting provider, had some memorable wins this season, confirming its presence as a JPL force not to be trifled with. With its current 10th place, it can no longer hope for Play-Off 1 participation, but it’s a very solid favourite to win its side of Play-Off 2, with 33 points gathered so far.

RAFC, meanwhile, showed consistence by staying among the top 6 teams headed for Play-Off 1. The Great Old has 50 points, enough to ascertain itself for Play-Off 1 participation. However, points are always welcome to get a better starting position in the Play-Offs. The first leg of this fixture, back in late October, ended in a 3-1 win for the team from RAFC.

KV Mechelen – KAS Eupen (Saturday March 7 MARCH 1, 9 P.M.)

At the moment, KV Mechelen holds the last of the 6 tickets for the Play-Off 1. It’s defending this 6th place with 43 hard-earned points, but both KRC Genk and RSC Anderlecht can mathematically still grasp the ticket out of Mechelen’s hands in a last-ditch effort. To secure its participation in Play-Off 1, Malinwa will bring it all to the field on Saturday evening. KAS Eupen is warned!

Play-Off 2 is waiting for the Eupen side, which stands in a 13th position going into matchday 29. A victory against KV Mechelen, however, could boost its starting position in the upcoming Play-Off round. The black and white side has bad memories from its last game against Malinwa: in its own Kehrweg Stadium, it lost 0-2. The second leg of this fixture could potentially end up even worse for Eupen…
