Severely beaten by Antwerp last weekend, Sporting de Charleroi welcomes another candidate for the playoffs on Saturday evening: the Gantoise, who had let the victory slip away in additional time against Kortrijk last Sunday.
And Edward Still makes changes to that base XI to accommodate the Buffalos. A forced change, first, since Vakoun Bayo cannot play against Gantoise, the club to which he belongs. And it’s Ken Nkuba who benefits: injured for more than a year, the young Carolo will return on Saturday evening.
Behind, Valentine Ozornwafor replaces Stelios Andreou, who will start the game on the bench. This is the very first tenure of the Nigerian central defender with Sporting.

La Gantoise with Okumu and Bruno
On the Ghent side, Hein Vanhaezebrouck is still without Tarik TIssoudali, who is playing the CAN with Morocco, and Laurent Depoitre, but he recovers Joseph Okumu, who will be aligned in central defense alongside Bruno Godeau and Andreas Hanche-Olsen. In front, Gianni Bruno finds a place in the base eleven, alongside Andrew Hjulsager.
