Belgian Betting Round 22: The end of Mario Been?
Each week, Bjorn De Cock from BeNeFoot will bring you some interesting bets as the season progresses. Here are our top three picks for this weekend.
Zulte Waregem – Racing Genk X2 @ 1.63 (5/10)
Racing Genk and Mario Been had a fabulous start of the season. One month ago, Mario Been was the best coach of the league according to all the Jupiler Pro League analysts. This weekend he better doesn’t lose against Zulte Waregem or he could find himself a new team. After their recent bad results in the competition, KV Oostende eliminated Racing Genk in the Belgian Cup this week. This weekend they’ll do everything to prevent losing more points, certainly against another title contender. Zulte Waregem lost one of their important players in January in the name of Junior Malanda. Thorgan Hazard’s flirt with Anderlecht probably also means that his focus isn’t 100% anymore. It’s all or nothing for Mario Been!
Lokeren to beat Cercle Brugge @ 2.00 (6/10)
Sporting Lokeren are seven points ahead of Cercle Brugge. Surprisingly, that’s a big achievement for Lorenzo Staelens and his men. Cercle Brugge had a disastrous season last year but they are doing great this season. Lokeren had a more then decent first half of the competition and seem to be heading for Play Off 1. Lokeren has the better team and they should win this game easily so they can even make the gap bigger between them and the Play Off 2 spots. Cercle Brugge also sold some important players in January. Gregory Mertens, one of their best defenders even moved to their opponent of this weekend.
Club Brugge to beat Lierse SK @ 1.65 (7/10)
We all expected that Michel Preud’homme would spend some money in this transfer period after he signed for Club Brugge last year. Until now, Club Brugge didn’t bought any player. Yesterday, Michel Preud’homme told the press that a striker is coming and that everybody will be surprised of that signing. Personally I think that the main concern for Club Brugge should be to keep Maxime Lestienne in Jan Breydel until this summer. Lierse coach Stanley Menzo is having a difficult season so far with Lierse SK. Injuries and a lack of quality aren’t helping the former goalkeeper. I can’t see Lierse SK winning so Club Brugge to beat Lierse SK @ 1.65 is a good bet.
