Belgium – First Division A
Date: Thursday, 16 December 2021
Kick-off at 17:45 UK/ 18:45 CET

Antwerp are on a run which should possibly end with them securing a top-three finish. They are scoring goals at an impressive rate, and especially at home, they have been a force to reckon with.

Meanwhile, Eupen are on a dismal stretch of performances. They are conceding goals quite in plenty, and particularly on the road, they have been a total mess lately.

And with an inferior h2h record as well, they are massive underdogs this Thursday at the Bosuilstadion.

Antwerp vs Eupen Prediction & Analysis

Antwerp had won three of the past four games, and they have lost just four times in 2021-22, in all competitions. Note that two of these losses had come in the Europa League.

On the other hand, Eupen were winless in eight of their past ten overall matches. Of the two total wins during this stretch, one had come in the Belgian Cup, against a team from the lower division, while one had come against the dead-last placed Beerschot.

Considering these observations, expect a win for Antwerp at the Bosuilstadion.
