Antwerp Prediction – Can Antwerp consolidate place in top six?

Although recent results have produced mixed returns for 6th placed Antwerp, the hosts seem in a strong position ahead of this top six clash against Gent on Thursday night at their Bosuilstadion as they look to keep the likes of 7th placed Zulte-Waregem at arms length.

Results away from home continue to be a source of frustration and disappointment for manager Laszlo Boloni’s side as they’ve now gone 4 matches without success on their travels, but it’s on home turf where Antwerp have excelled so far this season in the Belgian top flight.

Antwerp possess a strong looking home record of 5-1-0 16/6 which includes victories over Waasland-Beveren, Sint-Truiden, Cercle Brugge, Kortrijk and most impressive of all, a 2-1 win over First Division A leaders, Club Brugge, last time out on home turf.

Indeed, Antwerp have suffered just 1 defeat out of their last 11 matches on home turf in the Belgian top flight which incidentally was to tonight’s opponents, Gent, at the end of last season, but with the likes of midfielder Refaelov (6 goals) and forward Mbokani (11 goals) in their armoury, Antwerp should have more success this time.

Gent Prediction – Can Gent extend unbeaten run?

The visitors bring a valuable 5-match unbeaten run into this important Thursday night top six clash with Antwerp having registered wins against Waasland-Beveren, Standard Liege and Genk along with points picked up on the road in 1-1 draws away at Sint-Truiden and Anderlecht respectively.

2nd placed Gent therefore appear to be sailing through this season right now and with a 100% winning record at home they look a hard unit to stop at the moment, but peel away the veneer and you’ll find that they’ve struggled to match their results at home when they hit the road.

An overall away record of 1-4-2 9/12 is the worst away record out of all the teams sitting in the top six of the First Division A and although they’ve registered a recent win at mid-table Genk, they’ve also succumbed to defeats at Royal Excel Mouscron and Club Brugge as well as being held to 4 draws.

With just 3 away wins out of their last 12 matches on their travels in the Belgian top flight, Gent are by no means guaranteed all three points in this clash.


Key-Facts – Antwerp vs Gent

  • Antwerp have lost just 1 out of their last 11 home matches in the First Division A
  • Gent have won just 3 of their last 12 away matches in the Belgian top flight
  • Antwerp have lost just 1 of the last 8 meetings against Gent


Betting Tips Verdict

Antwerp’s current form at home should see them at least avoid defeat here.
