Tom Vandenberghe, Joo Silva, Tsuyoshi Watanabe, Martin Wasinski, Dion De Neve, Stjepan Loncar, Nayel Mehssatou, Kristof D’Haene, Abdelkahar Kadri, Felipe Avenatti, and Massimo Bruno appear to be De Kerels’ most probable starting lineup in a 3-4-3 formation this time.

Lennart Moser, Boris Lambert, Oleksandr Filin, Loc Bessile, Yentl Van Genechten, Brandon Baiye, Stef Peeters, Jason Davidson, Konan N’Dri, Regan Charles-Cook, and Djeidi Gassama are among the players we predict Pandas will start in a 3-4-3 formation.
Eupen will have their job cut out for them if they want to win against this KV Kortrijk team, who we believe has a good chance of winning and possibly even keeping a clean sheet.
