MICHAEL ADUBATO - Saturday, March 8, 2014
The Belgian champions will make the short trip east to the university city of Leuven on Saturday afternoon where they'll take on struggling OHL in Pro League action.
With head coach Van den Brom continuing frantically shuffling and re-schuffling his team for just about every game, it's hard to say if midfielder Sacha Kljestan will make the bench, never mind get onto the field.
He has not seen a great deal of playing time recently although when he did make it onto the field against Mons last month, he netted his eighth goal of the season. In the last 10 games, he's featured in just three of them, once as a second half substitute.
The fact that he had a mediocre performance midweek against Ukraine in USA colors will not work in his favor either. Matias Suarez will definitely not feature as the Argentinian continues to recover from torn cruciate ligaments.
The hosts have only collected two points in their last five games and will struggle in their last two as they try to stay atop of RAEC Mons before their relegation battle play-off series begins against the Walloons. Leuven have not reported any absentees.
Les Mauves will play their last game next weekend against KV Ostende before the play-offs begin.
