Gent are one of the best teams in the competition, and their placing in the second position of the table is ample justification for the claim.

Eupen have been struggling to post points on the board consistently (disregarding a few wins against teams from the bottom-most tier).

Will the in-form Gent make the most of this match-up and make the hosts pay a heavy price ?

Eupen vs Gent Prediction

Eupen lost on the road the last match-day against St. Truiden. The scoreline was a huge 5-2, in favor of the hosts, and it put things into perspective after Eupen had recorded a few points against some relegation-battlers in the past game weeks.

In the meantime, Gent were held to a 1-1 draw by Anderlecht the prior game week, and it put to an end their four-game winning run in the league. Surely, the squad will be raring to get back to their winning ways, and they will try to make the most of this battle against the struggling Eupen.

To make it clearer, Eupen were winless in nine of their last twelve overall fixtures, and they had gone through two separate four-fixture losing runs in the midst of this stretch. Moreover, at home, the team has secured a total of just three wins this whole season, and two of those had come against teams from the bottom-most tier.

Eupen had also lost the reverse fixture 6-1, and they are on losing streak of three games against this opponent as well. They had also conceded a total of 30 goals from the last 11 h2h meetings, and at this venue, they have not kept a clean sheet in the past decade. 

Also do keep note that, at this stadium, disregarding once, the hosts had conceded twice or more in all h2h fixtures since 2010. Analyzing all these information, it’s abundantly clear that Gent are the overwhelming favorites this Friday.
