Anderlecht vs Antwerp
Belgium – First Division A
Date: Thursday, 12 May 2022
Kick-off at 19:30 UK / 20:30 CET
Venue: Lotto Park.

Round Four of Championship Play Offs will see Anderlecht hosting Antwerp where both sides differ by 3 points. These two teams will cross swords at Lotto Park, this Thursday.

These two sides just met 3 days before where Anderlecht thrashed Antwerp by 4-0 at Bosuilstadion. The Belgian giants who come here on high spirits could secure the third place in First Division A and could also qualify for the Europa Conference League, by doing the same thing this Thursday.

Anderlecht have 36 points in hand and remain at the third position as of now. They are unbeaten since the last 2 fixtures and have scored 5 goals in total in the Play Offs alone. They boast one of the best home records in Belgium, winning 10 of their 17 regular-season home games.

Over their prior six fixtures, Vincent Kompany’s men have netted a total of 12 times resulting in an average number of goals per match of 2. They have the third-best attacking record during the regular season campaign, netting 72 goals in 31 games.

On the other side, Antwerp are yet to taste victory in the Championship and remain outside the Europa League qualifiers zone. They have also not scored in the Play Offs while having conceded 5 goals from the last 3 games alone. The visitors will need to make amendments and fast, starting with this upcoming game.

Anderlecht vs Antwerp Head-to-head (h2h)

Anderlecht vs Antwerp Prediction

Anderlecht remain unbeaten in their last 7 home games across various competitions. They even won 6 of them while maintaining 3 cleansheet victories. The hosts scored an incredible 41 goals in 17 regular-season home league games and netted 72 in 34 overall before the Play-offs began.

Meanwhile, Antwerp have faded after an excellent start to the season and they remain winless in 4 matches after Saturday’s thrashing. They have not found the back of the net in the last 3 consecutive games. The visitors also lost thrice of their previous 4 away league schedules.

By the looks of things, expect a victory for Anderlecht as they have been remarkable at home this season.
