Antwerp Prediction – Can Antwerp jump into 2nd spot?

All three points for the hosts in this Friday night clash against 10th placed Anderlecht would see Antwerp jump into 2nd place at Gent’s expense although it also depends upon Charleroi’s result against Oostende too in these two fixtures in the First Division A this evening.

Antwerp currently sit in 3rd place thanks to a decent run of 7 matches without defeat in the Belgian top flight which has produced 5 wins – victories over First Division A leaders, Club Brugge, along with wins against Gent, Mechelen, Waasland-Beveren and Eupen have helped lift Antwerp up into the top six of the top flight.

The hosts have also been in blistering form on home turf at their Bosuilstadion so far this season as the hosts possess an excellent home record of 8-1-0 21/8 to date, which includes winning their last 5 home matches on the trot.

In addition, Antwerp have scored 2 goals or more in 7 of their 9 home matches so far this term and with the likes of midfielder Refaelov (9 goals) and forward Mbokani (14 goals), further goals could well follow on Friday night.

Anderlecht Prediction – Can Anderlecht back up Genk result?

The once-famous Belgian outfit are currently to be found languishing in the bottom half of the Belgian top flight in a disappointing 10th place due to recording just 1 win out of their last 5 matches overall in the First Division A.

Conversely though, Anderlecht have lost just 1 of their last 12 matches overall which was a 3-2 loss away from home at strugglers Oostende, but within this recent 12-match sequence, Anderlecht have been involved in no fewer than 6 draws which has prevented them from mocving further up the First Division A table.

It therefore may be worth keeping the draw onside as far as possible, especially as 3 of Anderlecht’s last 5 matches have ended ion stalemates with draws against Kortrijk, Sporting Charleroi and Standard Liege.

Anderlecht’s overall away record stands at an ordinary looking 2-3-4 10/13 but the visitors have lost just once in their last five matches on their travels, so be wary of their ability to grind out a possible point here.


Key-Facts – Antwerp vs Anderlecht

  • Antwerp are unbeaten in their last 7 matches in the Belgian top flight
  • Antwerp have won their last 5 home matches on the trot in the FDA
