The quarter-final match in the cup will be the duel between Filou Oostende and Belfius Mons-Hainaut, the two finalists of the last playoffs in Belgium. Oostende is still the leader in the competition, but Mons-Hainaut is struggling this season and has to fight for the top 5. On a two-way tie, everything is possible, especially since Mons-Hainaut will play the second leg on their home ground on Sunday.
For Phoenix Brussels, who will face Okapi Aalst, it will be an important weekend to try to save a difficult season. Both teams have won their home games in the league. On Friday, Brussels will have to try to gain a home advantage before the return match in Aalst two days later.
Hubo Limburg United has not lived up to its ambitions in the league so far. The cup will be taken seriously by the Limburg club, who will face Leuven Bears in the quarterfinals. A dangerous draw considering the form of the Leuven Bears in the league this season. The first leg will be played on Friday at the SportOase in Leuven and the second leg will be played in Limburg on Sunday.
The last quarter will be a double Antwerp derby between Telenet Giants Antwerp and Kangoeroes Mechelen. The Giants will face this match with Luc Smout as interim coach after the dismissal of Christophe Beghin. This duel against the Kangoeroes is not a gift for Antwerp, which has lost twice to Mechelen this season in the league. The Kangoeroes will host the first leg and the Giants the second leg.
