Will Antwerp extend unbeaten home form?

It has been a strong season from Antwerp on home soil in the Belgian top flight. They are W9 D2 L0 there so far. They had a ten-match unbeaten streak of top-flight form snapped last time out (home and away combined) as they were toppled on the road at leaders Club Brugge.

Even though this is a top-six clash, the statistics do stack up well for Antwerp. They have averaged 2.09 goals per home game this season, while they have conceded just 9 goals in their 11 home fixtures.

64% of their home games in the league have made it over 2.5 goals. Antwerp have played host to the current top two of Club Brugge and Gent this season, and won both of those fixtures.

Our betting prediction:
Antwerp 1 Goal Margin Win
11/4

(odds taken 21:41 GMT, Wednesday 12th January)

Antwerp and Genk have already met twice this season. They played out a 2-2 draw in their first league meeting back in October and then there was a 3-3 draw between them (in Antwerp) in a Belgian Cup meeting in early December.

Antwerp are actually winless in three games against Genk currently (D2 L1). They did win their last home league game against them, however, a 1-0 success.

 

Can Genk pick up the away points?

The away form of Genk this season reads W3 D3 L6. So they haven’t been in great shape away from home. They have lost two of their last three top-flight road games as well, suffering losses at Gent and Anderlecht. It is worth noting that two of their three away wins this season happened against the current bottom two.
