Separated by nine points on the Pro League table, Gent and Charleroi will go head-to-head in the 21st game week of the season on Thursday. The home side are fighting for a place in the top four as they remain just a point behind Club Brugge, with ten wins from 20 games played this season. On the other hand, Charleroi are vying hard for a top-half spot as their record of ten defeats from 19 games remains a big point of concern. An even more concerning situation for the visitors is their negative goal difference of six goals (26-32). With not a single away game ending in a draw, Charleroi are looking to win from their fifth outing and hand Gent just their third defeat on home turf. One of the top three defensive sides at home, Gent have managed to come out unscathed from 8 of the 10 games played at the Ghelamco Arena in 2022-23.

Gent vs Sporting Charleroi Betting Pick #1: BTTS

BTTS priced at 1.75 odds at the time of writing is a total bargain because neither side has been defensively stable in their recent games. While both sides have conceded at least one goal in their last three games played, Gent and Charleroi have both scored against each other in four of the last four meetings too. Moreover, Charleroi as the weaker opponent among the two clubs has also scored against five of their last seven opponents in the Pro League, affirming that they will at least get one past this Gent side (who are expected to beat them).

Pick #2: Home/Over 2.5

While the past meetings have not been very one-sided in any team's favour, Gent have been very consistent in their overall Pro League performances for ages now. This season, Charleroi have fallen behind in terms of quality by a mile and we believe that the home side will take advantage of it. With both sides expected to score, Gent will have to outscore their opponents by scoring two or more goals on the night thus making it the seventh meeting from eight occasions that this game will end in over 2.5 goals now.

Gent Team News

Gent have an injured player in each of the three departments of the pitch. Starting with defender Jordan Torunarigha, who will not play at least till mid-February, owing to his ankle injury. Midfielder Andrew Hjulsager and forward Tarik Tissoudali will also be unavailable for this game due to their hamstring and cruciate ligament injuries respectively. While Tissoudali is out for the season, we can expect Hjulsager to play every game from February is he continues his predicted recovery.

Sporting Charleroi Team News

Charleroi have an even bigger injury list than their top-six hosts, which adds to their woe of an already wrecked away form. Stefan Knezevic (Knee) and Loic Bessile (Knock) are very close to recovery and might even make it to the bench on this away trip, but surely will not be in the starting eleven. Jules van Cleemput (Ankle) has been given an uncertain date of recovery which should have been complete by now, but the club reports have still kept him out of the picture when it comes to this match's preparations.
