Player to watch – Aboubakary Koita

Koita is enjoying his best season in front of goal and his performances have been attracting interest from other European clubs.

The 25-year-old striker moved to Sint-Truiden from Waasland-Beveren in 2021 and has gone on to represent his country Mauritania due to his good form this season.

The most likely match-winner on Sunday

Koita didn't have the best of starts to his Sint-Truiden career, in fact, 13 of his 14 league goals for the club have arrived this season in what has been a real breakthrough campaign for the late developer.
