To prepare for the new season, KV Kortrijk gathered quite early and had friendly matches to test the squad. The results they achieved are relatively positive when in the past 5 matches, coach Belhocine’s teachers and students only lost 1 match, having 3 victories against strong opponents such as Mechelen, Oostende and Utrecht of the Netherlands.
Confronting Oud-Heverlee Leuven in the opening match, Kortrijk headed for 3 points. This is a difficult goal because in terms of strength, there is not too much difference in this matchup. Last season, at the end of phase one (the round-robin phase), Kortrijk placed in 12th place, while Oud-Heverlee Leuven finished 11th with 4 points more.
However, from a multi-dimensional and objective perspective, the Kortrijk scenario has 3 points that are likely to happen. In the Belgian league, Oud-Heverlee Leuven did not win the last 7 matches, lost 5 and all 5 matches they failed according to the Asian ratio. Away, Oud-Heverlee Leuven also lost 3 of the last 4 matches and only had 1 draw.
History also favors Kortrijk with 3 points. 23 times since 2006 until now, they overwhelmed the opponent with 12 victories and only 6 defeats. In the last 12 matches against the opponent at home, Kortrijk also showed confidence with only 1 defeat and 8 triumphs – a statistic strong enough to put faith in Kortrijk.

Kortrijk’s boss, Karim Belhocine, led The Guys to a 13th placed finish in the Belgian top-flight last season. The home team begin this season expecting to finish, once again, firmly in the middle-of-the-table. They kick-off their campaign against an Oud-Heverlee Leuven side that, with their relationship with Leicester City, also finished in mid-table in eleventh placed. These are two relatively evenly matched sides and a draw would, therefore, appear the likeliest outcome for this one.
