Antwerp Prediction

Antwerp have produced a promising campaign in the Championship Group to date as the hosts have suffered just 2 defeats out of their first 8 matches of this second phase of the domestic Belgian top flight which were losses away from home at Standard Liege and Genk in 3-1 and 4-0 defeats respectively.

These defeats aside, Antwerp have produced impressive results in this Championship Group as they’ve collected wins against Genk, Anderlecht, Gent and Standard Liege as well as taking points off Club Brugge and Anderlecht in 0-0 and 1-1 draws respectively.

Overall form at their Bosuilstadion has been pretty steady as the hosts have suffered just 2 defeats from their last 9 matches on home soil which will give them confidence of getting a result ahead of Thursday night’s clash with Gent.

Recent wins over Cercle Brugge, Zutle-Waregem, Lokeren and Oostende will also serve as a boost for the hosts as they look to nail down an automatic Europa League spot.

Midfielder Refaelov and forward Mbokani (10 goals) look the most likely for Antwerp here.

Gent Prediction

Gent sit bottom of the Championship Group having collected just 1 win from their 8 matches so far in the second phase which was a 3-2 win away from home at Standard Liege which put an end to 6 defeats from their previous 7 matches.

It’s been a disastrous campaign for Gent with home and away losses against Club Brugge and Genk as well as to Standard Liege and Antwerp (both at their GHELAMCO-arena), and they accordingly sit bottom of this 6-team group two points adrift of Anderlecht prior to tonight’s visit to Antwerp.

Gent have produced mixed results away form home in the past couple of months, winning 4, drawing 2 and losing 3 in their last 9 matches on their travels, but just 5 clean sheets from their last 21 on the road suggests a vulnerability at the back which Antwerp could exploit here.

In addition, Gent have failed to beat Antwerp in each of their last three visits to their Bosuilstadion, so they’ll have their work cut out to get all three points in this clash I fancy.


Key-Facts – Antwerp v Gent

  • Antwerp have lost just 2 of their last 9 matches at home in the Belgian top flight
  • Gent have won just 1 of their 8 matches to date in the Championship Group
  • Gent have failed to beat Antwerp in each of their last 3 visits away from home


Betting Tips Verdict

Antwerp’s solid start to this Championship Group campaign should see them at least avoid defeat here.
