There were nine head to head matches between OH Leuven and Standard Liege in the past. Hosts from Haverlee never experienced how it’s like to beat Liege, getting defeated seven times and scoring only three goals.
The most recent h2h was a friendly match in mid-2018. Standard have won it narrowly 1-0.
Standard scored 19 goals against Leuven in nine games, and their current form in terms of efficiency is at high level.
Standard’s great form is definitely not a surprise. The way they defeated Reims in the last friendly pre-season game 3-0 indicated the potential of this squad. Their First Division A season started with back-to—back victories against Cercle Brugge and Waasland Beveren. Derby duel against Genk ended without goals, while most recent appearance saw Standard dismantle Beerschot 3-0. Team’s biggest rising star and best goalscorer Samuel Bastien is one of key parts of Standard’s machinery.
OH Leuven’s best appearance this season was two weeks ago against Beveren. They were victorious as visitors 3-1 FT, securing the first victory. All other games were basically parking the bus and hoping for the best. As already stated above, this team is quite limited in terms of budget and player base, so we don’t think they stand a chance against Standard. Away win is a big banker bet in our opinion.
