First Division A at Bet Victor

There’s further action from the Belgian First Division A on Sunday afternoon when Gent take on Eupen as the betting tips continue at the GHELAMCO-arena, with the hosts looking to get off the mark here.

Gent Prediction – Can Gent get off the mark at home?

The hosts were frustrated in their opening game of last week’s Belgian top flight when they were held to a 1-1 draw away at Sporting Charleroi.

However, Gent have a great opportunity to get their first win of the domestic season on the board this Sunday when they entertain Eupen.

Gent recently recorded an eventful and high-scoring win over two legs against Romanian outfit, Viitorul, in the Europa League.

An aggregate scoreline of 7-5 in Gent’s favour prove they possess impressive firepower, but manager Jess Thorup will be keen to tighten up at the back.

In addition, Gent have played numerous pre-season friendlies before the season started, playing a total of 8 warm-up matches, so they should be raring to go here.

Recent overall results on home turf at their GHELAMCO-arena have been impressive for Gent who have won 4 of their last 5 matches in all competitions.

Their recent history at home against Eupen has also been encouraging as they’ve won their last two meetings against them – 2-0 and 3-0 respectively.

Eupen Prediction – Can Eupen bounce back on the road?

After being dealt a heavy 4-1 defeat at home in last week’s opening match of the First Division A season, Eupen face a tough trip to Gent this Sunday.

It was not the start that Eupen manager, Benat San Jose had envisaged, and they’ll now have to do what they’ve been unable to do in their last two visits to the GHELAMCO-arena, and that is to beat Gent.

Eupen’s pre-season saw the club make a successful start to this new campaign as they went unbeaten in the 4 warm-up matches they played.

A 2-2 draw with OH Leuven was followed by 3 wins on the trot against Bayer Leverkusen, Raeren-Eynatten and OFI Crete.

The visitors will therefore be hoping that these recent results erase the memory of last season’s horrific run-in which saw Eupen lose 6 of their last 8 matches overall.

With just 2 wins from their last 10 away matches in the Belgian top flight though, Eupen face a tall order at Gent this Sunday.

Victories at Cercle Brugge and Sporting Charleroi were the only highlights in a dismal finish to last season on the road.


Key-Facts – Gent v Eupen

  • Gent have won 4 of their last 5 matches at home overall in all competitions
  • Eupen have won just 2 of their last 10 away matches in the First Division A
  • Gent have won the last 2 meetings at home against Eupen – 2-0 and 3-0 respectively


Betting Tips Verdict

Gent look to be in the driving seat here and will no doubt be keen to grab a win in their opening home match of the season.
