After a disappointing game against leader Union, we go to Antwerp tomorrow for the 16e matchday of the Jupiler Pro League. After a transfer summer in which Antwerp came out with some big names, we find The Great Old back in second place in the standings. Our Coastal Boys are in thirteenth place after the defeat against Union.
On the previous matchday, Antwerp surprisingly lost on the artificial turf of Sint-Truiden. However, they won the previous game 2-0 against Anderlecht. Priske's troops regularly drop points against lesser opponents. They lost 2-1 against Zulte Waregem and played equal against OH Leuven at home. In the top games things are going better with victories against Standard, Union, Genk, Gent and Anderlecht.
At Antwerp, you have to watch out for Frey. The striker, who came over from Waasland-Beveren, has already scored fourteen goals in our league. He's involved in no less than 63% of the Antwerp goals. In midfield, Nainggolan is back to his best. With his kicking technique, he can decide on the game at any moment. With Birger Verstraete and Jelle Bataille we also meet two real Ostend Boys.
Last season we drew 1-1 at home against Antwerp. In the Bosuilstadion we won with 1-2. Kvasina scored the winning goal in minute 85.
