Oostende vs Gent – hosts pull hard to catch Europa League places

The penultimate round of the play-off in Belgium Jupiler League tonight will put them face to face Oostende and Gent. The two groups will meet from 21:30 on Shiervelde Stadium, and the match can be watched live broadcast on the website unibet.ro. Given that the last stage will be part of a movement very difficult, host band would need a great success today if you want to catch the last place that ensures qualification in European competitions. I believe that we will see a very exciting duel between two teams separated by just three points.

KV Oostende to currently occupy fifth place and is a single length from the position which ensures the presence in the Europa League. The hosts of this meeting have recovered very quickly after the onset of weak playoffs and have won three of their previous four matches in which they were involved. Yves Vanderhaeghe prepared by the band took a series of five matches extremely so dramatically that ended with over 2.5 goals. Offensive players such as monsoons, or Cyriac Akpala made their job extremely well and always knew how to put pressure goal. In the current edition of the championship, Oostende was defeated at home by only three teams and is certainly capable of making a very nice figure tonight.

Didier Ovono is suspended and will watch today’s match from the stands. His place will be taken between the goal most likely by Biebauw. Milic and Capon face adductor problems and have received permission physicians entering the field. No Canesin is not physically fit, but Vandendriessche has a good chance to play even for a few minutes.

Indeed, we have some absences, but so far substitutes proved that they do their job. Play the next two matches without pressure. Third place would be great for us because we would ensure direct presence in the European League. I’d be happy with fourth place. It would give us a great opportunity to test our potential in Europe.

With two stages remaining disputed Gent is six points behind Anderlecht, so it has no chance of going to fall in the Champions League qualifiers. Grouping prepared by Hein Vanhaezebrouck three ranks, especially because this modest results achieved lately. It can be seen that it has reached a series of three consecutive failures, and each duel cashed least two goals. In 2016, KAA was presented extremely modest travel and lost five of eight matches played. Guests today’s meeting were the weakest offensive play-off, scoring only nine goals. Also surprisingly modest goal difference is one of only -6.

Coulibaly began as this week to train alongside other players and could catch a few minutes nd half. Gent’s coach hopes that it will be available on Kumsal and Asare, players experiencing some medical problems. Matton, Elhamed and Vandenbussche certainly will miss because of injury.

For now, we are in pole position for third place. The last two rounds will meet our direct opponents and it is important that we start with a slight advantage. Sometimes you have some games where you do not enter anything, this was the case in the previous two matches. I am sure that this time we will be more efficient and we will take advantage of our opportunities.
