In their previous match, Kortrijk met RFC Seraing on Wednesday, and it finished in a 3:2 win at home. If not taking into account its last encounter, the squad has been on a run of two consecutive defeats. Performing at home was of little help throughout the last ten Kortrijk meetings, as the hosts won four times and the guests won five. Only one of the side’s last 10 outings resulted in a draw. Looking at the team’s previous five encounters, it becomes apparent that three featured over 2.5 goals and three witnessed goals at both ends. Throughout these, Kortrijk’s efforts paid off, as the team managed to prevent goals in their net one time and failed to score on their own in only one encounter. The teams had scored an average of three goals in their previous five meetings.
