* Betting odds were correct at the time of publication but are subject to change

Standard Liege go in search of the win that would reduce the gap between themselves and Sint-Truidense to a single point when the pair go head-to-head on Wednesday evening. Sint-Truidense got the better of Standard when the two teams last locked horns and another victory this week would solidify their spot in the top half of the table.

Standard Liege vs Sint-Truidense prediction – Betting tips & odds

Hot Tip – Draw

  • Sint-Truidense have only lost one of their last seven competitive and non-competitive matches against Standard Liege.
  • Two of Standard's and two of Sint-Truidense's last five outings in the First Division A have ended in stalemates.

Another reason that we have backed a draw as our main prediction is that the last time Standard played host to Sint-Truidense the game ended in a 1-1 draw.

Standard Liege vs Sint-Truidense team news

Standard Liege

Standard Liege were the architect of their own downfall at the weekend away at Mechelen. Defender Merveille Bokadi was shown a straight red card in the twelfth minute and ten minutes before the break, Mechelen took the lead. The hosts scored another two goals in the second half to run out convincing 3-0 winners.

Steven Alzate could be joined on the sidelines by Nathan Ngoy who picked up an injury against Mechelen, while Merveille Bokadi misses the Sint-Truidense game due to a suspension.

Predicted Lineup: Bodart (GK), Laifis, Djenepo, Fossey, Hautekiet, Kawabe, O'Neill, Noubi, Price, Kanga & Sowah

Sint-Truidense

Sint-Truidense had the home advantage against Sporting Charleroi last time out but this game was proved to be tight and tense throughout. In the end, following a goalless first half, Sint-Truidense did manage to carve out the only goal of the game six minutes from full-time via Jarne Steuckers.

Daniel Schmidt and Frederic Ananou are the two main injury concerns for the visitors ahead of their trip to Liege on Wednesday.

Predicted Lineup: Suzuki (GK), Janssens, Hashioka, Bocat, Van Helden, Smets, Steuckers, Delorge-Knieper, Koïta, Ito & Kaya

Player to Watch: Aboubakary Koita

Sint-Truidense forward, Aboubakary Koita is enjoying his best season since turning professional.

The former Gent striker has reached double figures in goals for the first time ever and seeing as he failed to score in twenty-nine apperances for Sint-Truidense last season, eleven goals in the 2023/24 is a fantastic achievement.

We're backing Koita to cause the Standard Liege defence a few headaches in this game and wouldn't be surprised to see his name on the scoresheet at some point.
