Prediction and betting advice for Charleroi vs. Anderlecht on December 26, 2022

Charleroi will host Anderlecht at the Stade du Pays de Charleroi in Jupiler Pro League on Monday (December 26).

The two teams are separated by a single point in the standings, with the hosts occupying the 12th spot, one place below Anderlecht. Charleroi’s last league contest ended in a 4-1 defeat against Genk at the Cegeka Arena before a Cup elimination at the hands of RFC Seraing. Friendlies against Besiktas and Reims produced disappointing losses too.

Les Zebres are yet to win the league but finished respectably in seventh place last season. They will look to emulate that again, but they have won only five of 17 games this season and lost eight times.

Anderlecht’s last meeting against Charleroi at Lotto Park was surprisingly dominated by the visitors. Anderlecht will want to avenge that loss at the Stade du Pays de Charleroi, where they have emerged successful previously. However, Brian Riemer’s men have not been on a good run.

Les Mauves et Blancs have won just once in their last five games, recording six wins and nine losses in 17 games. The record 34-time Belgian First Division winners have also crashed out of the cup competition. Monday’s game is crucial for Anderlecht, as they could be overhauled by four teams in case they lose.
