Zulte Waregem and KRC Genk will also start their new season in the Jupiler Pro League on Sunday. Coach Hannes Wolf’s Limburg troops are moving to the Gaverbeek with many newcomers, and hope to achieve a good result in Waregem.
Kristian Thorstvedt and Brian Heynen will not experience the trip to West Flanders, because both midfielders are still in the rag basket due to injuries. Neither did Theo Bongonda, because it became known on Saturday that the winger tested positive for COVID-19. Furthermore, Hannes Wolf can count on an almost completely fit selection and he would according to The Importance of Limburg even dare to immediately drop a few newcomers into the base.
The Limburg newspaper predicts that striker Cyriel Dessers and wing defender Daniel Munoz will be allowed to play from the first minute. That means that Nigerian Paul Onuachu, who did not play an undeserved season last season, will start on the bench. In addition, Danny Vukovic’s goal is to have preference over the young Maarten Vandevoordt, who is back in training and has been released from the corona virus. Junya Ito and Jere Uronen have become fit and will probably also start.
