Antwerp vs Charleroi – Prediction, and Match Preview

Antwerp vs Charleroi – In the prior six games played in various competitions, the hosts had won five and drawn one. The winning streak includes victories over teams like Genk and Union St. Gilloise, the top two in the league standings.

Antwerp has improved significantly under head coach Mark van Bommel’s leadership, moving up to third position after the aforementioned string of victories.

While second-placed Union St. Gilloise is currently two points ahead of Royal Antwerp, leader Genk is only seven points behind them.

The former Dutch defender (van Bommel) has discovered the secret to maintaining defensive discipline for his squad.

With only 24 goals allowed this season, Antwerp has the best defensive record in the division. In the previous six games across all categories, they have only allowed one goal or less to be shipped.

In this matchup against Charleroi, who have recently struggled to score goals, we think Antwerp has a good chance of preserving another clean sheet.

The visitors entered this game coming off a disappointing 0-1 home loss to OH Leuven last Friday with just two goals tallied in their previous four First Division A games.

Antwerp vs Charleroi – Betting Analysis

Antwerp will also be supported by their head-to-head performance in this matchup, as they have won 21, drawn 6, and lost 6 of their previous 33 home games against Charleroi.

However, Sporting Charleroi triumphed 1-0 over Antwerp in their first-half season matchup in October of the previous year. Less than three goals were scored in four of the prior six head-to-head contests between these rivals.

In their last six matches across all categories, Royal Antwerp has recorded five victories and one tie. In light of Sporting Charleroi’s recent close defensive style of play, we anticipate a low-scoring game on Sunday.
