Oud-Heverlee Leuven (W) – Gent (W) Match Prediction | 06-09-2019 14:30

During the 201718 winter transfer window, OH Leuven was much less active. Geert Berben[31] had both not been receiving much playing time and was therefore loaned out to Oosterzonen Oosterwijk. Also loaned out was Thomas Azevedo,[32] who was unhappy to be used only as a substitute and returned on loan to his former team Lommel.

Eventually the team ended fourth after finishing the season by being thrashed 5-0 away to Excel Mouscron, a score which was on the scoreboard already at half-time. In the closing tournament the team again started mediocre, drawing against struggling teams Roeselare, Union SG and Tubize to set up a crucial away match to Cercle Brugge already on matchday 6, which was lost 1-0 against ten men. OH Leuven thereafter never managed to close the gap to Cercle Brugge and had to settle for the Europa League play-off matches, in which they scored wins against Waasland-Beveren and Excel Mouscron and a draw against a strong Zulte Waregem.

GENT vs OUD HEVERLEE LEUVEN Prediction & H2H

The team was not able to overtake Beerschot-Wilrijk anymore during the opening tournament, missing the first chance to qualify for the promotion play-offs by three points. OH Leuven lost points early throughout the season as several key starting players arrived only late in the 2017 summer transfer window, resulting in a poor league start of 2 wins, 4 draws and 1 loss from the opening 7 games.

In June, with Samy Kehli and Elliott Moore, two players were kept that were on loan during the previous season.

Storm had already been on loan since the 201617 winter transfer window but the loan was extended for another season. In July, the team signed three Belgian players, young midfielder Mathieu Maertens was brought in from Cercle Brugge,[13] while defenders Derrick Tshimanga (from Willem II)[14] and Dimitri Daeseleire (from Antwerp)[15] were brought in for their experience. During the summer of 2017, OH Leuven was very active on the transfer market, although initially this was most noticeable on the outgoing side with the contracts of Nicolas Delporte, Nathan Durieux, Jonathan Kindermans and Fazl Kocaba not being prolonged and five loan players returning to their parent clubs: Nathan de Medina returned to Anderlecht, Siebe Horemans, Lucas Schoofs and Serge Tabekou all returned to Gent and Yannick Loemba returned to Oostende. Early 2018 it would become apparent that the injury had effectively ended Simaeys' professional football career and that he had found an agreement with the club to terminate his contract early.[1] On top of this in May Belgian First Amateur Division team Heist announced the signing of defender Mehdi Bounou,[2] while Kenneth Houdret moved to direct opponents Union SG.[3] On the incoming side, OH Leuven announced mid May the dual signing of defenders Clment Fabre (from Tubize) and Kenneth Schuermans (from Westerlo), while also mentioning that goalkeeper Laurent Henkinet had extended his contract by three seasons until 2020.[4] Early June saw two further departures, with first Soufiane El Banouhi following Kenneth Houdret to Union SG,[5] followed by Romain Reynaud who moved to French fourth tier team Andrzieux-Bouthon.[6] Later that month three more players departed the squad as Pieter-Jan Monteyne moved to Roeselare,[7]Pierre-Yves Ngawa was signed by Serie B team Avellino[8] and Ben Yagan moved to the Belgian First Amateur Division to play for Dessel Sport,[9] while on the incoming side OH Leuven strengthened the squad with four players: Geert Berben was seen as a promising youngster and picked up from relegated Lommel United,[10] experienced French midfielder Julien Gorius was brought in for free from Chinese team Changchun Yatai[10] and with Yannick Aguemon (from Union SG)[11] and Nikola Storm (again on loan from Club Brugge),[12] two fast wingers were added to the squad. As newly signed player Clment Fabre had suffered a serious injury near the end of July, which meant he would be unavailable for at least several months, two more defenders were brought in: Ivorian international Mamadou Bagayoko was signed from Sint-Truiden[18] while English youth international Elliott Moore arrived on loan from Leicester City,[19] with that transfer being arranged due to the fact that both OH Leuven and Leicester were now under ownership of King Power. Meanwhile, Simon Bracke and Cdric D'Ulivo left the team, respectively to Hasselt[16] and Icelandic team FH.[17] Traditionally, OH Leuven was very active in the month of August. No official news was released at the time about Jeroen Simaeys, who had suffered a serious injury early 2017, but he was no longer being presented as part of the squad in spite of having a running contract.

The first transfer news regarding the 201819 squad came in March, when Mechelen announced that despite their relegation from the Belgian First Division A, Ivorian defender Mamadou Bagayoko would remain at the team.

After missing out on winning the opening tournament, going out early against amateur team Dessel Sport in the Belgian Cup and several disappointing results in the closing tournament, English coach Nigel Pearson was sacked in January 2019 and replaced by the duo of Vincent Euvrard (manager) and Franky Vercauteren (sports advisor). Although deemed as potential candidates for promotion at the start of the season, OH Leuven was never in contention and was always closer to the bottom of the table than to the top.

Early July, both Thomas Azevedo[10] and Geert Berben[11] moved to Lommel, their former team. Azevedo was already on loan to Lommel during the second half of the previous season and became a free agent player after his contract with OH Leuven ended, while Berben had been on loan to Oosterzonen Oosterwijk and was now sold.
