Oostende is having a great start of the season, getting 7 points from opening 4 matches, which gave them 6h place in the league. They have had 2 back to back home wins against Club Brugge (1:0) and Mouscron (2:1). In addition a draw against 2nd placed Waregemon the road only prove Oostende is in a great form. In the upcoming match, they will face Waasland, who are struggling. If 2 points from 4 opening matches say anything, it’s that they need to improve in many aspects. They especially have some problems in the back line, as they have conceived 7 goals in 4 matches. Waastland’s poor performance in the opening 4 matches (0-2-2) gave them second to last place in the table. Despite that, they can still be proud of a draw against Genk (2:2).
Oostende has a strong home record, only losing 1 match out of last 5 played. And even that was against Gent, who scored in 84′. On the other side, we have got a team (Waasland) who have not won in 6 away fixtures in Belgium league. The favorites here are clear. Oostende will want to extend their 3 matches without a defeat and I see this as an great opportunity for them to get another 3 points.
On one side we have a got a prospective team, who has shown some great performances and on the other side, we have got a team that has only won 1 match out of the last 12 league matches. On top of that, their away record shows, they have only scored twice in last 6 away matches played. This is a match Oostende must take advantage of and we can expect them to win it by more than just a goal.
