MechelenPreview – Can Mechelen make it three on the trot?

Fiday night’s hosts, Mechelen, will be in confident mood ahead of their upcoming encounter against Standard Liege as the home side have registered recent back-to-back wins in the Belgian top flight which has lifted them into the top six of the First Division A.

Recent wins against Oostende and Royal Excel Mouscron has lifted Wouter Vrancken’s side into the top six and a possible berth in the Championship Round when the First Division A splits into its two separate halves later in the season.

These two wins fro Mechelen would have been very welcome indeed as they prevented a 4-match run without a win in the Belgian top flight from becoming anything more sinister, while Mechelen’s home record stands at 4-3-3 16/17.

However, with just 1 win out of their last 5 matches at home, it may be best to consider the goals market here; especially as 7 of Mechelen’s 10 home games to date have seen both teams score.

Our betting suggestion:
Over 2.5 goals
1.80

Standard LiegePreview – Can Standard Liege get going again?

Despite sitting in 5th place in the First Division A and 1 point above Friday night’s hosts, Mechelen, Standard Liege have now gone 4 league matches without a win in the Belgian top flight following back-to-back draws with Royal Excel Mouscron and Anderlecht in 2-2 and 1-1 stalemates respectively, as well as back-to-back defeats.

Recent losses to Waasland-Beveren 2-1 away from home and a 1-0 loss at home to Gent last time out in the domestic top flight means that the visitors are still nervously looking over their shoulders at the chasing pack behind them, holding just a 4-point cushion ahead of Zulte-Waregem and Genk.

An away record of 3-3-4 16/15 also doesn’t inspire much confidence in the straight win here for Standard Liege, especially as they’ve recorded just 1 away win out of their last 6 matches on their travels.

However, 8 of Standard Liege’s 10 away matches so far have seen both teams score, so this looks the best option here.
