Sporting Charleroi

Sporting Charleroi played out a goalless draw in their last league game away at Standard Liege but lost a couple of players to injury and might be forced into a reshuffle ahead of the trip to Sint-Truiden.

Stefan Kneevi and Marco Ilaimaharitra both had to be taken off during the 0-0 draw with Standard and they look set to join Roméo Monticelli on the sidelines for this weekend's match.

Player to Watch: Aboubakary Koita

Sint-Truiden forward Aboubakary Koita might be the one player that could undo our prediction for a goalless draw this weekend.

The 25-year-old is enjoying his best-ever season in front of goal with eleven so far for Sint-Truiden in the First Division A. The Mauritania international managed seven league goals during the 2020/21 season when he was playing for Beveren and actually failed to register a single goal in twenty-nine apperances for Sint-Truiden in the last campaign, so 2023 has been a great year for Koita.
