Antwerp vs Mechelen
Belgium – First Division A
Date: Friday, 2 October 2020
Kick-off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Bosuilstadion (Antwerp).

The 2-0 loss on the road against Charleroi back in August was Antwerp’s only loss within the last five fixtures in the campaign schedule. They are on a three-game unbeaten run lately, following a 1-3 win on the road against Kortrijk in the league prior to the upcoming match.

The Great Old will host Mechelen in the game with a four-point lead over the latter in the table. KV Mechelen had four consecutive losses in their schedule, which ended in a win in the last clash. They will visit on the back of that 2-0 win at home against St. Truiden in the campaign.

Antwerp vs Mechelen Prediction

Antwerp hasn’t given away their defense when playing as the host in their h2h meetings with Mechelen since 2007. Four of their recent five clashes at home with De Kakkers have seen them keep a clean sheet in the game.

Keeping this in mind, the tip for under 3.5 goals will probably be the best bet for the punters in the encounter.

The host has lost none of their fixtures at home against Mechelen in their h2h history. Besides, De Kakkers has lost their last two fixtures on the road in a row. The match is sizing to be a home win in full-time, but it will be safer to go with a draw no bet over Antwerp in the encounter.

With their clean sheet records against the visitors, the tip for Antwerp to win either half in the clash will also come in handy.
