Standard Liege welcome the visitors Anderlecht in the Belgian Jupiler League Championship Group – Round 4. The match will be held on Friday, April, 12th, at the Stade Maurice Dufrasne (Liege).
In the last round, the hosting Standard Liege conceded to Klub Brugge KV, which was not unexpected, actually. The 4:0 score was surprising though. Anyways, this does not prevent the team from taking the 3rd place in the table – they run 2 points ahead of Antwerp, 4 points off Brugge, and 5 points off the leaders Genk. Therefore, the hunt for the title goes on, and there are still many claimers for the top tier in the league. Under the circumstances, Standard cannot afford more fails like that.

The visiting Anderlecht ceased their fight for the gold medals yet in the main part of the championship run. The team did not stoop so low as to play out the season in the outsiders’ group and entered the top-six at the very end. Going by Anderlecht’s performance, they are no longer ambitious. In the last round, they lost to the second-last then Antwerp and exchanged places with them.
The hosts had around a week to bounce back, think of their placement, and make corrections in their plans. The homeside’s first step should be to win over Anderlecht who cannot be labeled rampant this campaign. And this is very doable. Standard were successful at home against the guests even when the latter were doing much better. Of 8 latest head-to-heads held in Liege, Standard won 5 and lost 1. The hosts will probably apologize to their fans for the match in Brugge by winning the other Belgian giants. Thus they will keep and possibly improve their placement – the leaders clash this round, and some may drop points, maybe even both of them. Still, a handicap on the hosts won’t hurt. Though not impressive this campaign, Anderlecht will be Anderlecht.
Prediction for the match: Standard Liege to win with a 0.0 handicap.
