Will Charleroi overcome their recent jinx in the Walloon derby?


On Saturday at 8.30 p.m., Club Brugge and Genk battle it out, while on Sunday at 6 p.m., it’s time for the exciting Walloon derby between Charleroi and Standard Liège!

Will Charleroi overcome their recent jinx in the Walloon derby?

One of the most eagerly anticipated derbies of the season is once more upon us! The Walloon derby between Charleroi and Standard Liège has always been a fiery affair with no love lost between the fans of the two clubs. Charleroi will be proud of their performances so far this year as they look to continue their jostle with Anderlecht for second place. A recent 3-3 draw away to Club Brugge showed the progress Charleroi has made, and it will look to continue that form against their fiercest rivals.
Meanwhile, Standard Liège languish in mid-table, suffering from a lack of consistency in their results. Recent results including a 3-3 draw with Anderlecht and a comfortable 3-0 win away to Lokeren suggest a strong finish could be in line for Liège. It should be noted that Charleroi has suffered in this fixture in recent years losing 6 out of the last 7 fixtures played at the Stade du Pays de Charleroi.

Will Club Brugge keep its unbeaten home record in tact?

The other big game from the Jupiler Pro League sees runaway leaders Club Brugge up against KRC Genk at the Jan Breydel stadium. Genk will be buoyed by their excellent Belgian cup run, which has seen them reach this year’s final after overcoming Kortrijk in the semi-finals. It’s fair to say the home side has dominated this fixture in recent times, with Genk registering just one victory away to Brugge in the last 6 visits. A highly effective attacking threat has seen Club Brugge pull away from the rest of the clubs at the top of the table. The leaders have scored over 60 goals already with Mali forward Abdoulay Diaby getting on the score sheet on a regular basis. Ivan Leko’s men holds the best home record in the division, where they remain unbeaten (12 wins, 1 draw, 0 losses). The last time these two sides met was back in October at the Cristal Arena, with Genk coming out on top on a 2-0 score line. Could Genk cause a huge upset here?
