Anderlecht vs Gent
Belgium – Jupiler Pro League
Date: Sunday, 31 January 2021
Kick-off at 17:15 UK/ 18:15 CET
Venue: Lotto Park (Anderlecht).

Anderlecht continues to drop points in the league despite having an unbeaten run. Their three-game unbeaten streak consists of two draws in it, showing a shaky defense in the middle. The host will return home after a 1-1 draw on the road with Mouscron last time out in the schedule.

Gent is also on a three-game unbeaten run in the league with two draws in it. The 1-1 draw at home with Truiden came after a win in their schedule. They are six points behind the home team on the table, and defeating a team sitting at the 5th spot from the 11th place is easier said than done.

Anderlecht vs Gent Head-to-head (h2h)

  • Four of their last five matches have ended in a draw.
  • Their recent four fixtures have seen both teams scoring.
  • The visitor has recorded four of the last five overall wins.
  • The host has lost only one of their last ten clashes at home.
  • Their previous encounter resulted in a 1-1 draw at Gent.

Anderlecht vs Gent Prediction

With a gap of just five teams in between the two sides on the table, we can expect a slow start to the game at Lotto Park on Sunday. The host enjoys the ground advantage in the game and an unbeaten streak in the league home matches this term further backs their form at home.

Gent also has a mixed form in the campaign and is struggling a bit as of late. Their winless streak in three away games came to an end with the win in the last outing. This will improve the morale of the players, but will not be enough to trouble the host in a dangerous way.

The double chance favoring Anderlecht will probably be the best bet for the punters. Furthermore, the host is the favorite to win, and they have averaged 1.5 goals at home this season. So, the tip for under 3.5 goals will comprehend what seems to be a low-scoring affair.

Anderlecht vs Gent Betting tips

  • Under 3.5 goals @ 1.44 (4/9).
