Kortrijk take on the visitors Lokeren at "Guldensporenstadion" in the matchday nine of the Europa League Group B of the Jupiler League. The game will be played on Wednesday, May 17th.
Kortrijk completely collapsed at the end of the season by losing three clashes in a row: vs. Genk 0:3, vs. KSV Roeselare 0:3 and vs. Eupen 2:3. As a result, the side occupies the fifth position among six teams in the standings of the Group B having gained eight points with no tournament motivation left by the end of the season. In 2017 Andriy Totovytsky's team conducted nine encounters resulting in just two home triumphs, one draw and six defeats. The weak spot of Kortrijk is their play in defense as the team conceded a lot of goals.

On the contrary, Lokeren recaptured their best form at the end of the season. The side has not been broken since the 1st of April across seven consecutive fights recording three wins and four draws in them. Despite its recent successful results, Sergiy Bolbat's team occupies the second place in the Group B table with 13 points earned and it is unlikely to move up which means that it will not be able to claim for the place in the Eurocups next season. In 2017 Lokeren participated in eight encounters on the road recording three draws, four losses and one victory in them. It should be noted that in last away clash "Tricolores" defeated KSV Roeselare with 3:2 scoreline.
Lokeren demonstrated better performance than Kortrijk in recent games, therefore, "Tricolores" have higher chances to get favourable result in the matchup and pick up some points in it.
Prediction for the match: Lokeren to win with 0.0 Asian handicap.
