Oostende vs Mechelen (Belgium Jupiler League)

Oostende opened the season with a win over Anderlecht on the road (2:1) and confirmed it with the home win in next game vs Cercle Brugge. But Club Brugge was a big shark for Oostende, before loosing to Gent away from home. This time Oostende will relay on the easier opponent compared to the previous two. No fresh squad problems for the home team, attackers Hjulsager(2/0) and Vargas(2/1) are still out sidelined. Midfielder Bataille(0/0) is returning to the squad while attacker D'Haese(3/0) might return too. Mechelen has a great start as the newly promoted team, with three wins out of four games and are still undefeated, but the coach has a first real problem(s): both his regular full-backs will be out, left-back Bijker(4/0) and right back Van Cleemput(4/0). Furthermore, midfielder Van Damme(2/0) and attacker Engvall(2/2 top scorer) are both out for two games already. Goalkeeper Thoelen(3/0) returns on a good note for Mechelen. Mechelen was not active during the transfer period since match-fixing allegations put a question on their promotion and they were cleared 2 weeks before season start. This means their squad lacks needed depth. Oostende won 3 out of previous 4 home games vs Mechelen in the previous 5 years
