Belgium – First Division A
Date: Thursday, 21 November 2019
Kick-off at 19:30 UK/ 20:30 CET

If current form is any indication, Gent should have been the favorite come out on top this Thursday. However, their form on the road poses a serious question, and coupled with Antwerp’s home performances, an electric encounter is on the cards.

  • The last time these two met, Gent won 1-2.
  • Six of the former eight games had goals at either end of the pitch.

Royal Antwerp vs Gent Prediction

Gent has managed to record a total of just three wins on the road from their previous fourteen trips. They have secured a single league wins away from home, whereas their opposite number has been tearing it apart in home fixtures.

In fact, Antwerp is unbeaten in their prior thirteen matches in front of the home crowd, and they even managed to secure wins in eight of their last ten appearances. They also scored twice or more in their preceding five such match-ups as well.

Taking into account scope for the Antwerp to get into the top-most tier, coupled with their home advantage, along with the struggles of their counterparts in away ties, expect Antwerp to avoid a loss this Thursday at any cost.

However, despite the away handicap, Gent is on fine form in overall games, and they will be keen to hold on to their place in the second spot. Moreover, the majority of h2h clashes have witnessed goals down both ends of the field, and finally, with the hosts of the day failing to keep a single clean sheet in their last six home games, BTTS seems a very promising wager.
