Charleroi and Genk face each other at Stade du Pays de Charleroi in the opening match of the Eredivisie day 28. Charleroi head into Friday’s game following back-to-back draws with Waregem and Waasland-Beveren, and they must return to winning ways as soon as possible if they are to represent Belgium in European competitions next season. The likes of Tshiend, Willems, and Zajkov are all likely to miss the game with injuries, but the hosts should grab something from the match as Genk suffered a dip in form.
De Smurfen are on a three-game losing run in the Belgian top flight, meaning that they are low on confidence ahead of the trip to Hainaut. Charleroi want this win more than Genk, and I predict that the hosts are going to prove their worth on the field. Ecuador international Preciado should be the only absentee in the away team.
Levante and Athletic Club take on each other at Estadi Ciutat de Valencia in the opening match of the La Liga day 25. Los Levantinos defeated Atletico Madrid 2-0 at Estadio Wanda Metropolitano at the weekend, but it has to be noted that los Rojiblancos missed number of clear-cut opportunities to score in Saturday’s showdown. As always, a man to watch in the home team will be experienced attacker Morales, who found the net in the triumph over Atletico Madrid, but the hosts face a difficult task in Friday’s football match.
The Lions have been in a fine form of late, with the team rolling over Cadiz 4-0 on the road, while sharing the spoils with Villarreal. Athletic Club aim to keep their Europa League hopes alive, but beating Levante on the road is easier said than done. Even though both Nunez and Vesga return from suspension, share of spoils is on the cards at Estadi Ciutat de Valencia
