Antwerp vs Anderlecht
Belgium – First Division A
Date: Sunday, 8 May 2022
Kick-off at 17:30 UK / 18:30 CET
Round Three of Championship Play Offs will see Antwerp hosting Anderlecht where both sides are in dire need of a win. These two teams will cross swords at Bosuilstadion, this Sunday.
Antwerp had a goal-less draw in their last Play-Offs match with Royale Union SG. That draw came as a relief after their previous loss against Club Brugge. Coming in third, they are in the Europa Conference League qualifier spot and will be looking here on their first win at Play Offs.
Antwerp have really been misfiring as of late. They scored none from their previous two Play off fixtures while conceding once. They are tally on points with Anderlecht and it is due to their goal ratio that they remain at the third spot.
In their previous fixture, Anderlecht drew 0-0 in their First Division A Play Off tie with Club Brugge after losing to Royale Union SG by 1-3 in the opening game of Championship group. The visitors need to improve their defense as they have seen conceding due to careless errors.
Vincent Kompany’s Anderlecht netted a total of 8 times throughout their previous 6 matches. The number of goals that have been scored against them during that period comes to 6.

Antwerp vs Anderlecht Prediction
Royal Antwerp has enjoyed playing at home recently, with the side currently unbeaten in 4 games. They even won the last 2 h2h home games in succession. The hosts need to improve their attack if they’re to get anything out of this game as they have not scored in the last 2 matches.
Meanwhile, Anderlecht lost thrice of their last 4 away matches across various competitions. They need to improve their defensive side as they have been conceding often.
We feel that the hosts might well have a job on their hands to score goals against this Anderlecht side who we think should score one at least and win this Sunday.
