It will already be the 187th duel between Club and Standard in the First Division. The 93 prior away matches resulted in 25 victories, 21 draws and 47 defeats for the Blues. There is no other opponent that Club faced more than Standard in the Belgian First Division. 

Club could not win seven consecutive times at Sclessin (5D 2L). The last victory at the banks of the Maas was a 0-3 win in January 2017. If Club manage to score twice at Standard, they will score their 300th league goal against the Rouches.

At Standard, the Liègemen took the lead twice through Mathieu Cafaro and Renaud Emond and just as many times Club were able to score again, each time through Bas Dost.
