First Division A Betting at Bet Victor

Kortrijk Prediction

Kortrijk’s encouraging six-match run in the First Division A came to an abrupt end in last week’s 2-1 defeat away at Standard Liege which has left the hosts in 10th place, but they return to their Guldensporenstadion on Sunday evening where they’ll be confident of getting something out of.

Kortrijk previously strung together a six match sequence in the Belgian top flight which included wins against Oostende, Royal Excel Mouscron and Zulte-Waregem along with points taken off the First Division A league leaders Genk, as well as 3rd placed Club Brugge and Sint-Truiden.

These recent results suggest that Kortrijk are certainly no pushovers even though they occupy a bottom half position in the Belgian top flight, while their form on home turf has seen a lift as they’ve suffered just one defeat from their last six matches within an overall record of 3-3-4 16/19.

Forwards Mboyo and Stojanovic (7 goals apiece) along with Avenatti and Chevalier (3 goals each) should cause Gent a few problems on Sunday evening.


Key-Facts – Kortrijk v Gent

  • Kortrijk have lost just once in their last 6 matches at home
  • Gent have lost 4 of their last 5 matches away from home
  • Gent have conceded 2 goals or more in 8 of their 10 away matches


Gent Prediction

Gent occupy the last remaining Championship Round position in 6th place in the First Division A but this is largely thanks to a pretty good home record which has seen the visitors win 7 of their 10 league matches at their GHELAMCO-arena.

Gent have won three of their last eight matches overall in the Belgian top flight but all three of these victories were recorded on home turf while away from home, the visitors have lost four of their last five matches on their travels amidst a disappointing away record of 3-2-5 18/19.

Defeats at third from bottom club Royal Excel Mouscron, Anderlecht, Sporting Charleroi and league leaders Genk prove that Gent have had their problems on their travels this season and along with keeping just two clean sheets on the road, their defence has leaked goals on a regular basis.

The visitors have conceded 2 goals or more in 8 of their 10 away matches so they could be on the back foot in this fixture at Kortrijk if they’re not careful.

Betting Tips Verdict

Kortrijk have shown some solid form in recent weeks and are hard to beat. The hosts should grab at least a point here I fancy.
