Seeking to close out their 2021-22 Belgian Jupiler League campaign with a fifth consecutive victory, KAA Gent will play host to Sporting Charleroi at the Ghelamco Arena on Saturday.

Les Zèbres, meanwhile, head into the game winless in each of their last four away outings and will be looking to end this dry spell.

KAA Gent extended their lead at the top of the Jupiler League standings as they claimed a 2-0 victory over second-placed Genk last Sunday.

They have now won each of their last four outings, scoring nine goals and conceding two since a 1-0 loss to Genk on April 24.

Sunday’s victory also saw Gent seal their place in the playoffs for next season’s Europa League as they now boast a seven-point cushion at the top of the table.

Elsewhere, Sporting Charleroi returned to winning ways in style as they came from behind to snatch a 3-2 victory over Mechelen last time out.

Prior to that, Les Zèbres were on a four-game winless run, picking up one point from a possible 13.

Sporting Charleroi are currently third in the league standings, five points off second-placed Genk with two games to go.
