Anderlecht Prediction – Can Anderlecht extend unbeaten run?

12th placed Anderlecht currently occupy a disappointing bottom half position in the Belgian top flight after making a poor start to their First Division A campaign, but recent results have given the hosts plenty of encouragement and a welcome boost prior to the season run-in.

Previously, Anderlecht had managed to register just 1 win from their opening 9 matches of the First Division A season which was a 1-0 home win against 2nd placed Standard Liege, but 5 defeats and 2 draws within this sequence also had left Anderlecht in the lower reaches of the Belgian top flight.

However, the hosts have bounced back in recent times by picking up points in draws with Waasland-Beveren and Eupen along with back-to-back wins against Sporting Charleroi (2-1 away) and a resounding 4-1 home win against Sint-Truiden.

Overall form on home turf at their Lotto Park has also been promising despite the average season so far as Anderlecht possess a home record of 2-2-2 7/5 which includes just 1 defeat out of their last 5 matches.

Gent Prediction – Can Gent retain top six position?

Upon first glance, Gent’s recent results would suggest that they’re in a stronger position to claim all three points in this upcoming clash with Anderlecht, having suffered just 1 defeat out of their last 8 matches overall in the First Division A.

This impressive set of results also includes 5 wins out of these 8 matches, so confidence would be expected to be high amongst the Gent camp prior to this Thursday night encounter where the visitors will be seeking to maintain their position in the top six of the Belgian top flight.

However, dig a little deeper and you’ll find that all 5 of Gent’s recent wins have all been achieved on home turf at their GHELAMCO-arena where they still hold an impressive 100% winning record to date this season.

Results away from home though are a totally different story as the visitors are still without an away win to date amidst an overall record of 0-3-2 4/9 which includes defeats at 9th placed Royal Excel Mouscron and a 4-0 thrashing at the hands of Club Brugge, while they’ve gained just 2 away wins out of their last 10 matches on the road in the top flight.
