Two sides who started their Pro League campaign with victories face off on Monday, when Waasland-Beveren host Standard Liege. Standard Liege face a side that finished bottom of Belgium's top-flight last year, and were heading for relegation in March.

The coronavirus pandemic and subsequent decisions made suggested Waasland-Beveren were set to drop down into Belgium's second-tier. However they appealed the decision and BAS, Belgium's version of the Court of Arbitration for Sport, ultimately overturned it.

Can they continue their winning start to the new season against a Liege side they've only beaten three times in 18 H2H meetings? Read my match preview, for the correct score predictions and best betting tips ahead of this fixture.

Waasland-Beveren vs Standard Liege Betting Tips

Standard Liege had Samuel Bastien to thank for winning them a narrow home clash against Cercle Brugge on August 8, in their curtain-raiser. By contrast, Waasland-Beveren earned a first victory since mid-January with a 3-1 away win over KV Kortrijk.

Since beating KV Oostende on January 18, they lost a whopping eleven successive games – including four friendlies – which is hardly encouraging.

Under new management in Nicky Hayen, the 40-year-old will be motivating his players to replicate their performance levels here. After all, Liege was one of only four Pro League sides they beat across the entire 2019-20 campaign – a remarkable statistic.

That could be easier said than done, though. Liege finished fifth last term and will be eager to assert their early title-challenging credentials this season. Dropping points, against a side that continued to struggle last season, would be seen as disastrous.

It's likely that Abuobakary Koita will be rewarded after his cameo from the substitutes' bench. Replacing an ineffective Alessandro Albanese, he made it 2-1 just three minutes later and the 21-year-old winger hopes for more minutes.

Waasland-Beveren vs Standard Liege Correct Score Predictions

Whether Koita, Daan Heymans – who netted a brace last time out – or any other Waasland-Beveren players can make the definitive difference here remains to be seen.

Liege boast a better H2H record and will back themselves to prevail here, but I'm leaning towards BTTS.
