Anderlecht vs Standard Liege
Belgian First Division A
Date: Thursday, 10 May 2018
Kick-Off at 13:30 UK / 14:30 CET
Venue: Stade Constant Vanden Stock, Bruxelles.

Belgian First Division A is about to give us some drama in the final three games of the season, The battle for the trophy as well as the second place and the Champions League football is heated up to the max after the weekend’s round which saw Anderlecht beat table-toppers Club Brugge to narrow the gap down to two points between themselves and the leaders.

Standard are probably the most in-form side in the league at the moment and they will come into this off the back of four wins and a draw in last five First Division A affairs. The Reds have full right to dream bit, sitting third at the moment with just a two-point deficit to the second-placed Anderlecht ahead of mid-week’s derby at Stade Constant Vanden Stock.

Anderlecht vs Standard Liege: Head-to-head

Anderlecht lead the head to head tie by one win, but the most recent H2H history belongs to the Reds.

Standard Liege won two and drew one of last three meetings with Purple & White.

The streak includes a 2-1 win for Standard four weeks ago at Stade Maurice Dufrasne.

Anderlecht vs Standard Liege: Prediction

Both teams have been thriving in the final third lately. Standard bagged an impressive 12-goal tally in last three league matches, while Anderlecht notched five in back-to-back wins over Sporting Charleroi and Club Brugge. Backing goals at both ends thus just has to be the way to go under these circumstances and you can have this bet at 1.61.

As for the outcome, it can honestly go either way, but the best value can be found in backing the visitors to notch two or more goals at the 2.62 odds given that we expect it to be a truly high-scoring contest on Thursday.
