Goal glut in Liege
Standard Liege and Oostende meet on Saturday night with both sides looking for a win in the Belgium Pro Conference League to put the pressure on the two sides above them.
Liege have not had a great time of things recently with five losses in their last six games and they are now seven points off of the top two. They’ve scored seven goals in that period but conceded 17 with their defence struggling to hold up as the end of the season approaches.
Oostende haven’t fared much better with four losses in their last six games, leaving them four points off the top. They’ve scored 12 goals during that time, performing well in the final third but have also conceded 17 goals, faring the same fate as their opponents this weekend.
Both of these sides need to win to keep their ambitions alive this weekend and this should lead to plenty of chances at both ends of the pitch. Four of the last five matches between these sides have beaten the 2.5 goal line and we’re anticipating the same thing happening here with a forecast of a 2-2 draw.
