Anderlecht vs St. Truiden Predictions & Match Preview

Steffen Schmidt - February 10, 2023

Anderlecht vs St. Truiden
Belgian First Division A
Date: 12 February 2023, Sunday
Kick-off at 15:00 UK / 16:00 CET
Venue: Lotto Park (Bruxelles).

Anderlecht host Sint-Truiden in a super-exciting Matchday No 25 clash in Belgian First Division A on Sunday afternoon at Lotto Park.

This will be one of the last trains to catch for the hosts if they want to break into the top-four in the league standings and advance to the Championship Round in the postseason.

Anderlecht have generally had a turbulent campaign full of ups and downs this season. They currently occupy the 10th position in the league ladder and are even outside of the top-eight, meaning a place in the league’s Europa League playoffs is not guaranteed either.

The fourth-placed Club Brugge are ten points away and Anderlecht simply have no other option but to go for the win on Sunday.

The hosts will enter the tie in high spirits as they claimed seven out of nine possible points in the previous three league affairs.

Danish manager Brian Riemer looks to have found the right recipe for his team’s back line as Anderlecht kept three consecutive clean sheets in the First Division A.

St. Truiden, on the other side, broke into the top-eight in the league ladder after the last weekend’s 1-0 win over bottom-half strugglers Kortrijk.

It was, however, by no means a strong display from Bernd Hollerbach’s troops who barely created anything up front on the occasion.

Anderlecht vs St. Truiden Head-to-head

  • Anderlecht celebrated one of the rare road wins in the first half of the season just against St. Truiden, beating them 0-3 in mid-August last year.
  • Anderlecht have 30 wins, 9 draws, and 8 defeats in the previous 47 home meetings with Sint-Truiden.
  • None of the previous three head to head matches between these teams saw goals scored at both ends.

Anderlecht vs St. Truiden Prediction

St. Truiden have been anything but lethal offensively in the recent weeks. Since Anderlecht have improved their defensive showings of late, we see the Home Win & Under 2.5 goals FT bet as the way to go here at the 3.75 odds.

This should be a tight affair with a lot at stake for both outfits. We believe a single goal will make the difference which is why we’ll take the 6.50 odds offered for Anderlecht to win 1-0.

  • Anderlecht to win & Under 2.5 goals FT @ 3.75 (11/4)
