The Zèbres receive Ostend (Saturday 6:15 p.m.) to reconnect with success, after their victory against Eupen and the defeat at Union Saint-Gilloise. The task could however be complicated for Edward Still. Jonas Bager, the Danish defender, should miss the reception of the coastal. “He was unlucky. He took a very violent blow in training, ten days ago, on air contact, explained coach Carolo. He must undergo a small intervention at the level of the teeth. The pain is no longer bearable, when we hoped to wait until the next international break, or even the World Cup. He will finally have surgery this weekend. »
The other tile concerns Adem Zorgane. The elegant midfielder is very uncertain. “He trained less than his teammates, following a blow he received. We will do a last test this Saturday, at the end of the morning, to be sure of his physical and medical condition. Van Cleemput is obviously out, as is Boukamir. Petkevicius and Monticelli are not included.
Edward Still would really need the Algerian, given the confidence taken by Ostend following his success against Mechelen. “Yves Vanderhaeghe always prepares his teams well. Wherever he goes, he gets results. He has great defensive organization and quality up front, with plenty of speed in transition. Against Mechelen, they created a lot of chances. If we dominate Ostend in the management of transitions, we put the chances on our side to win. »
