Description: WSSB Vs STL Dream11 Team Probable Playing 11 And Match Report: Last season’s last placed Waasland-Beveren open the new campaign with a surprise win.
While many questioned Belgium’s decision to curb the 2019-20 edition of the Jupiler League midway, Waasland-Beveren were quietly happy with the latest development. The move saw no relegation in the bygone instalment of the league, set of events which ended up provided Waasland-Beveren massive needed breathing space.
In bottom place when Coronavirus struck Belgium, Waasland-Beveren’s season was absolutely going nowhere. With no wins in their last five encounters, the club looked set to make the drop with Coronavirus seeing the club survive relegation in the unlikeliest of fashions.
Luck doesn’t strike twice though and Waasland-Beveren will be the first to admit that such a fortuitous opportunity won’t make a foray their way once again. The club needs to pull its socks up in the 2020-21 edition of the league and massively overhaul its abysmal form from the previous season, something the side showed its willing to do in its opening 3-1 win this term.
WSSB Vs STL Dream11 Probable Winner
That win was a surpassing result for the side, one which came across as a much needed win for the side. It showed that the club is looking to make the most of its luck and no longer act as merely a pushover in the league.
While that performance alludes towards a string showing by the side today as well, we don’t see them keeping their unbeaten record intact today. They are up against a way superior St. Liege side, a team which showed how clinical it is defensively in its 1-0 win the last gameweek.

Dream 11 Picks
While attack was the name of the game in the bygone clash for Waasland-Beveren, the club quietly went about its task defensively as well. Despite seeing a siege being laid on their goal, the fortitude and vigour of the robust Lucas Pirard saw the side give away just the one goal on the day.
Their cleansheet in their opening game of the new season showed why Standard Liege can be such a tough team to encounter. The side has given the best in the league cold feet owing to a responsible, well tuned and compact brand of defending, one which saw the side finish up in a string position last time around.
This defensive resolve and valour will make life calamitous for a Waasland-Beveren side which ahs a measly 27 goals last season. It sees us indulge in the services of the guile filled trio of Nicolas Gavory, Mergim Vojvoda and Collins Fai for the imminent showdown.
Had it not been for Daan Heymans, Waasland-Beveren would have failed to open their new sojourn with a win to their name. The player rifled his way to a couple of goals in the clash to spearhead his side’s emphatic 3-1 win to see him become a must have pick for us today.
He’s going to find company in Jur Schryvers will the oppositions will see us rope in a trio of picks. With Waasland-Beveren being ripped apart for 60 goals last season, the most by any side, this can end up being a match where their trio for Standard Liege runs rings around them.
Both Samuel Bastien and Maxime Lestienne had the seven goals and five assists to their name the last season to make the duo a must have pick from the club. Selim Amallah scored four goals in the league for the club the last season to see him complete our trivalent from the club.
We have kept things levelly balanced in this docket by going for the one pick apiece from either side. We begin with the selection from St. Liege with Felipe Avenatti’s panache finding a place in our side owing to his expansive skill set.
The opposition sees us opt for Joseph Efford, someone capable of providing just the needed shot in the arm to his side’s attacking soirees.
Captain And Vice-Captain
A behemoth 7 goals and 5 assists last term see Lestienne captain our side while Bastien is the vice-captain.
