This weekend we will have the 26th round of the Jupiler League and the first match will be played this Friday, between Eupen and Gent.
With only 4 rounds to go and a difference of 11 points with the last playoff position, Eupen doesn’t have anything to fight for in this final stage of the championship. They aren’t in danger either, as the last place of the league is 12 points below them. The team only managed to win 2 times in the last 7 games played, and those two defeated rivals – Cercle Brugge and Waasland-Beveren – are standing in the two last positions, so this shows us the low motivation Eupen currently have.
On the other hand, Gent has played a very good season, only clouded by the excellent work done by Club Brugge, the current leader. Still, Gent hasn’t secured the second place yet, as Charleroi and Antwerp are chasing them, so the visitors of this match will show all their strengths to win the game and keep their position before the final playoffs of the league. Finally, the team hasn’t found the loss this year and the last defeat was on December 15th, so this has been good preparation for the Belgium final stage and the Europa League which will continue next week.
This match will be the final setup from Gent to prepare themselves for the Europa League. That is why I think the players will put extra effort into this game to secure a place on the main team for the big competition ahead.
