Standard Liege welcome the visitors Antwerp in the Belgian Jupiler League Championship Group – Round 1. The match will be held on Friday, March, 29th, at the Stade Maurice Dufrasne (Liege).
By the results of the Belgian league’s main term, Standard Liege did not only enter the championship top-six, they presently take the third line yet after they replaced Anderlecht and are only three points off the second-placed Club Brugge KV. This achievement is greatly attributed to the team’s two consecutive wins in the final rounds of the main term.

For some time, Antwerp found themselves second in the standings, then they kept the third place for a long period, but gradually receded along the season and might have dropped out of the top-six should there were 1 or 2 rounds more to play. In the last two encounters, Antwerp conceded but outpaced the seventh Sint-Truiden by two points, while the latter did not make use of the present and attained only one point in their last two fixtures.
This campaign, Antwerp managed to take four points from Standard, having registered a win away and a draw at home. Before, they lost to the ‘Reds’ in three games in a row, having failed to score a consolation goal in two of those. The hosts on the day presently feature a great form, they are on the go, whereas their guests are somehow ‘fed up’ – it’s been only two years that they are back to the elite division, and they will certainly stay here. Antwerp completed their task for this season by ending in top-six. Standard are not fine with the third place – they need to attain a Champions League pass; for this, they need to get three points from Brugge. The ‘Great Old’ are the most suitable side in the group to rack up three points at the start. The hosts’ squad are much more solid and well-knit compared to the guests’. They play great in front of their fans: of sixteen fixtures, they won eleven and lost one. The home team are very likely to win on Friday either.
Prediction for the match: Standard Liege to win home.
