KVC Westerlo - KV Kortrijk predictions and free betting tips [07/10/2023]
The next match from Belgium we'll be analysing takes place on Saturday in Pro League's 10th round, with Westerlo locked in combat against Kortrijk. Boasting excitement, as both clubs sit low in the table, this game is due to kick off at Het Kuipje stadium. Let's dive in and figure out where to place our bets.
Last season, they emerged as newcomers to the championship, following in the footsteps of the "Union" to deliver an impressive performance and secure 8th place in the league table. However, their current standing is rather disappointing, as after 9 rounds, the team has only managed to amass a mere 3 points.
After a defeat to Mechelen (2:3), the team suffered another loss against Cercle Brugge (1:2). The streak continued as they ceded their home ground to Antwerp with a score of (0:3). They finally managed to secure a point in a goalless draw against Standard Liege (0:0), and remarkably ended up with an action-packed draw against Genk (3:3) in their last away stop.
Last year saw them in the 14th position, and currently, they sit in the penultimate 15th spot with just 5 points. If they managed to avoid relegation last season, their results this time round don't seem promising at all.
In the 5th round, the team managed a draw against Standard Liege (1:1), followed by a loss against Leuven (0:3). Another draw ensued against Anderlecht (2:2), succeeded by a slim defeat to Charleroi. However, in their last round, they managed to notch up their first victory of the season, overcoming Cercle Brugge (2:1).
The previous face-off between Westerlo and Kortrijk was held on 11th of March 2023. That match saw Westerlo emerge victorious, outscoring their opponents (3:1).
Both teams are currently underperforming, but even so, Westerlo looks more likely to me. They've upped their game recently, managing a couple of draws on their recent excursions. So, I'd expect a win from them at home as they're up against Kortrijk, who have suffered 4 away defeats, conceding 13 goals in the process.
