Kortrijk take on the visitors Lokeren at “Guldensporenstadion” in the gameweek two of the Belgian Jupiler League of 2017/2018 season. The match will be played on Saturday, August 5th.
Kortrijk are the typical mid-table team of the Belgian football. The club exists due to selling the players: finding young footballers in Africa or Eastern Europe and selling them to stronger and richer clubs. The side cannot boast with impressive results even in the Jupiler League. During the summer break the side conducted four friendlies resulting in three defeats and only one triumph not mentioning the clash against an amateur club. The team couldn’t take points in the first round of the Jupiler League either, having lost to Charleroi with 0:1 scoreline on the road.

Lokeren are also the mid-table performer just like the hosting side of the matchup. However, the club achieves good results sometimes with qualifying to the Eurocups from time to time. This summer Lokeren showed solid football in friendly encounters recording four victories, a draw and one defeat in them. But Rúnar Kristinsson’s side has failed in the starting game of the Jupiler League: Lokeren was thrashed by Club Brugge KV with 0:4 scoreline at its own turf.
The opponents are more or less of the same level and they lost their starting clashes in the Jupiler League so that both of them will strive for revenge in the forthcoming battle. As the sides didn’t score in the first gameweek, I believe that they will do this in the upcoming head-to-head, especially bearing in mind that four out of five recent fights between these two clubs were finished in over scored goals.
Prediction for the match: Over 2.5 scored goals.
