Remarks: The injury to Koziello is not as bad as feared but he will definitely be out until after the New Year. Kvasina is healed but has problems with his quadriceps. Tanghe continues to have problems with his knee and will probably be out for another two weeks. McGeehan is keeping to a personal schedule, the intention is that he can join the team after the new year. Osifo is recovering well from personal medical problems.
After the satisfying home win against KAS Eupen, tomorrow we go to Charleroi for the 18e matchday of the Jupiler Pro League. If we take a look at the ranking, we see that Charleroi is in seventh place. With reservations: because it still needs three points after the supporters' violence in their previous game against Standard. They won in Liège with 0-3, which brings them to place four. Our Coastboys are on place twelve.
Charleroi started the season strongly under Edward Still. It was not until game day eight that the Zebras lost for the first time. With an outlier on matchday eleven Charleroi confirmed that they are having a strong season. They won 2-0 against KRC Genk.
At Charleroi, Nicholson is on the lookout. The central striker has ten goals and three assists this season. In midfield, Ali Gholizadeh is the strongman, with his excellent technique he is one of the most dangerous players in our league. His stats aren't bad either, the Iranian has already scored five goals and has three assists to his name. Ryota Morioka is another resounding name.
Last season we won 3-2 at home against Charleroi. At home we lost 1-0.
