RSC Anderlecht - Sp. Lokeren > 2,5
We're one week away from the start of the Belgian league, and as usual, the Supercup is on the program. Champions Anderlecht face Cup Winners Lokeren at home.
Anderlecht has a new coach, with Dutchman John Van Den Brom, and will surely want to prove they are ready for the new championship. On the other hand, Anderlecht ahs some issues. Central defenders Kouyate (Olympics) & Juhasz (Injured) won't play, which means Wasilewski and Deschacht (both usually wing backs at Anderlecht) will play in the centre of the defense. Also star player Matias Suarez is injured.
The new coach decided to slightly change the way of playing, with only 1 instead of 2 defensive midfielders. Kljestan seems to become the victim of this change, while promising youngster Dennis Praet will propably gets his chances this season. Apart from that, Van Den Brom holds on to a 4-3-3 formation.
Expected line-up: Proto - Odoi, Wasilewski, Deschacht, Safari - Biglia, Kanu, Praet - Jovanovic, Mbokani, Gillet
At Lokeren, nothing really changed actually. Same coach, no big outgoing transfers, and three incoming transfers with Saglik (Eupen, and star of the second division last season), Milos Maric (Lierse, experienced midfielder), and Grbac (Croatian winger). Maric only signed yesterday, so it's a question if he will immediately gets his place in the first eleven.
For tomorrow's game first goalkeeper Copa is out injured.
Expected line-up: Lazic - Galitsios, Taravel, Maric, De Bock - Overmeire, Persoons, De Pauw - Patosi, Harbaoui, De Ceulaer.
Lokeren isn't the team to dig in, while Anderlecht will want to show something to the home crowd, is offensively strong, but defensively prune.
