SELECTION AND PREVIEW KVO - STANDARD
Selection (19): Hubert, Scherpen, Jakel, Tanghe, Fortes, Capon, Duncan, Wylin, Ndicka, D'Arpino, Batzner, Rocha, McGeehan, Sakamoto, Patoulidis, Albanese, Atanga, Gueye, Ambrose.
Absent: Osifo, D'Haese.
Remarks: Yves Vanderhaeghe selected 19 players. This means that one more player will be left out of the selection tomorrow. Urhoghide, Medley, Amade, Boonen and Koziello will not be there. D'Haese (knee pain) has to forfeit. Duncan returns to the core after his injury.
Tomorrow Standard Liege will be visiting. Standard currently has only one point more than KVO. The Rouches lost their previous match with 2-0 against KRC Genk. In the first round KVO lost 1-0 to Standard. Selim Amallah scored the only goal of the match. At the time of that match, the 3D line was not yet available to VAR. As a result, Amallah's goal was not disallowed for offside. Afterwards, the Referee Department confirmed that it was effectively offside.
Provided a win against Standard Liege, KVO can take a big step in securing their retention. For Yves Vanderhaeghe it will be his first home game since he started working for the Kustboys again.
Last season, KVO won 6-2 over Standard in the Playoffs.
Last team Standard Liege: Bodart, Calut, Laifis, Sissako, Ngoy, Cafaro, Bokadi, Raskin, Dønnum, Amallah, Emond.
At Standard, Bodart and Laifis are uncertain due to injuries.
