Our prediction for this Belgium Pro League match:
After sharing the spoils with Antwerp before the international break, Standard Liege will be looking to return to winning ways in the Jupiler League when they welcome Eupen at their Stade Maurice Dufrasne on Saturday evening. Standard aim to retain top position in the standings, and they should take advantage of Eupen’s anything but good form.
The Pandas experienced all sorts of problems at the back in their last away game in the Jupiler League, with the team losing to Genk 4-0, and even though several Standard Liege first-team regulars miss the game, home win should be considered. The likes of Fai, Shamir, and Sissako are all sidelined through coronavirus, while Balikwisha, Muleka, Cop, Oulare, and Vanheusden are out of contention with injury for the hosts, but the Red Devils have strength in depth. In each of their previous three meetings in the Belgian top flight Standard defeated Eupen.
