KV Oostende made it two wins from two last time out when they saw off Sporting Charleroi 3-1 away from home last weekend.

Prior to that, they kicked off their 2022-23 Jupiler League campaign with a 2-0 loss at Anderlecht on July 24 before picking up a 2-1 victory over Mechelen six days later.

However, Oostende head into the weekend on a run of just one win from their last four home games in all competitions, picking up two draws and losing once in that time.

Meanwhile, KAA Gent picked up their first league win of the season last time out when they edged out Westerlo 2-1 on home turf.

Prior to that, they picked up successive draws against Standard Liege and Sint-Truidense in their opening two games of the season.

Gent will hope their win over Westerlo can serve as a springboard for a fine run of form as they look to set the pace for the Europa League qualifying opener against Omonia Nicosia on August 18.
