Despite a good match, having lost against Mechelen, Standard is looking to return to victory to confirm his new form. And why not get closer to the first half of the rankings.
No Dussenne, who became a father for the first time at the end of the week, will return to the Moussa Sissako team after withdrawing. On his right, Elsner must choose between Pavlovich and Nogoy to replace the unfortunate Devel (absent for four to six weeks due to a myo-aponeurotic lesion of the right adductor medius). In the pivot of the game, Selim Amlah, back from the can, could send Dennis Dragas back to the bench.
For their part, Cercle de Bruges is intent on resuming its march for the Schlesin side after their surprise defeat against Ostend this Saturday. Matondo will obviously be the No. 1 threat.
