Our prediction for this Belgium Pro League match:
Leuven and Mouscron square off against each other at Den Dreef in what is expected to be a very exciting game. Leuven aim to build on a 2-1 win over Cercle Brugge, and you should bear in mind that they are eyeing their fifth consecutive win at home ground in the 2020/21 Jupiler League campaign. Midfielder Mathieu Maertens, who was sent off at the weekend, is out of contention through suspension.
Mouscron, on the other hand, aim to make amends for a 2-0 loss to Waasland-Beveren. Les Hurlus have already suffered four defeats on the road this season, and even though Leuven head into the midweek clash with a severely-weakened squad, home win should be considered. In their last meeting in the Jupiler League Mouscron hammered Leuven 5-0, meaning that the hosts are hungry for revenge. Mouscron midfielder Darly Nlandu is self-isolated following a positive test for coronavirus.
