This first round of 16 of the Belgian Cup opposes two teams who are doing better in the league. Both winners last weekend, Seraing and Anderlecht have the ambition to qualify for the quarter-finals of the Croky Cup.
If maintenance remains the main objective of the Steelworkers, Jordi Condom does not intend to drop the Cup. For this round of 16, no question of turning. Only Marius, not yet fully recovered from his hamstring injury, will be missing. For the rest, the coach of the Seres should not make many changes compared to this weekend’s meeting against Sint-Truiden.
Anderlecht also have the Cup in mind. After the great victory in Charleroi, the Mauves want to continue with a qualification for the quarterfinals. As was the case against La Louvière in the previous round, Kompany should not rotate his squad and could line up the same base eleven as against the Zebras last Saturday, with the exception of Olsson put on rest.
The probable lines:
Seraing : Dietsch, Mansoni, Faye, Del Fabro, Boulenger, Poaty, Cissé, Lahsaini, Jallow, Maziz, Mikautadze
Anderlecht : Van Crombrugge, Murillo, Magallan, Hoedt, Gomez, Cullen, Verschaeren, Amuzu, Refaelov, Zirkzee, Kouamé
