Anderlecht vs Antwerp
Belgium – First Division A
Date: Sunday, 13 March 2022
Kick-off at 12:30 UK / 13:30 CET
Venue: Lotto Park.
Anderlecht are in impressive form, with the race for the title far fetched, the remainder of the top three positions is still very much up for grabs. A win here for the club would not only help them bypass their opponents but would also give them momentum ahead of the Championship Round.
The club would fancy their chances in this fixture as they head into the contest off the back of a five match unbeaten run winning all but one of those games.
The most recent of which came against KV Oostende at home in a comfortable 3-0 win. Following that the club is now 4th in the league, a point behind their opponents for this Sunday.
Antwerp on the other hand are going through a poor run of games. Not only has the club dropped crucial points in recent fixtures but those results came against clubs whom they are directly fighting for a spot in Europe.
In their previous five matches, they have lost against Club Brugge, Union SG and Mechelen but have also got away with a couple of wins against teams lower in the table.
On the last matchday, the club sealed a 2-1 win against bottom of the table team Beerschot, after they were reduced to ten men. Currently, the club is 3rd in the league, eleven points behind the league leaders.
Anderlecht vs Antwerp Head-to-head

- Two goals were scored on average in those fixtures.
- The visitors have won just twice at this venue.
Anderlecht vs Antwerp Prediction
The away side have scored exactly once in ten of their previous thirteen league fixtures on the road. Hence, I have backed them to continue this trend on Sunday.
Four of the last five away fixtures of Antwerp had more goals in the second half. Additionally, just two of the league fixtures at this venue this season have had more goals in the 1st half. Therefore, expect more goals after half time.
