Kortrijk hosts Charleroi in the Europa League playoffs semifinals in Belgian Jupiler League. The match will be played on Wednesday, May 22nd at Guldensporen Stadion (Kortrijk)
Kortrijk defeated Cercle Brugge in the final round and won the subgroup, but now the opponent is much more serious, and the battle for the Europa League begins at the home arena of Kortrijk.
As for me, Charleroi seems to be a team that is more balanced and plays defense first, and the Zebras can use it in the upcoming match.

Kortrijk really plays more passionately and is very active in the attack. However, the defense suffers from that, and the hosts concede a lot. But in their subgroup, except the matches with Saint Gilloise, they offset these problems by the scoring game. Here Kortrijk will meet with Charleroi, which certainly plays more intelligent and mundane football, so it is possible that the hosts will have to put the lid on their own desires in order to win. But the players do not really know how to do it, and it seems to me that their game style will let them down in this duel.
After a weak start in the subgroup due to staffing problems, Charleroi gradually braced itself and now shows very stable football. Its defense is not so easy to get through; therefore, the Mazzu’s team gradually hit a stride and beat Westerlo and St. Truiden in their subgroup. Antwerp is waiting ahead, and I see Charleroi in the Europa League playoffs final because of more rational use of resources. That’s why I really like the bet on the positive result of the visitors (X2) in the upcoming game, especially since they are no stranger to winning here...
Prediction for the match: Charleroi to win with +0.5 handicap
