Beerschot faced Charleroi away and suffered a 5:2 defeat. Their competitive image was tragic. Just 24 hours after the match, an extraordinary board of directors was called. Finally, it was decided to keep Peter Maes, who will now face the team, on whose bench he sat until June, but with a possible defeat, he will be resigned. Out of the squad for this match are De Smet (6/0 suspended), Sanyang (5/1), Radic (4/0 suspended), and Pietermaat (2/0). St. Truiden managed to celebrate again in the championship, after the premiere, away to Cercle Brugge. It was the first away victory that gave a breath of fresh air. However, it was not enough to cover her competitive gaps. Today, unavailable are Van Dessel (5/0), Balongo (4/1), and Reitz (4/0 suspended), while huge blows are departures of captain Mboyo (6/1), and Caufriez (5/0). This is a derby between teams that will lead an uncertain battle for survival in Jupiler Pro League. Both defenses are tragic and I think that we will watch an exciting game with a lot of goals on both sides.
