Antwerp travel to Stade Le Canonnier high on confidence after keeping back-to-back clean sheets against Sporting Charleroi and Kortrijk in the opening two games of the season. They took four points from these matches, marking a much better start compared to their rivals who are yet to avoid a defeat in the new campaign.

The hosts lost to both KV Oostende and Club Brugge, scoring just once along the way. Knowing they are up against a super stern defensive line of Antwerp’s here, it is hard to predict a pleasant evening for the local fans at Stade Le Canonnier.

The head coach Frank Defays is well aware that his men could struggle for creating goal-scoring chances here which is why our main betting options will be oriented towards Antwerp’s clean sheet here.

Royal-Excel Mouscron vs Antwerp: Head-to-head

The head to head stats speak in Mouscron’s favour, though.

The hosts won 3, drew 2 and lost only 1 of 6 previous meetings with Antwerp.

Only one of last four H2H games produced three or more goals.

The Great Old took four points from two last term meetings with Royal-Excel Mouscron.

Royal-Excel Mouscron vs Antwerp: Prediction

It is hard to go past the Under 2.5 goals FT bet here based on teams’ displays so far in the season. The visitors did not concede a single goal, while Mouscron were not that easy to break down in spite of losing both of opening matches.

The host only shipped a single goal in the clash with the reigning champions Club Brugge last weekend and we certainly do not expect them to allow a disaster against a defensive-minded Antwerp side.

The Under 2.5 goals Ft is a bet we must take at 2.00 odds also knowing that only one of last three head to head outings saw three or more goals scored. The alternative option would be Antwerp to keep a clean sheet at 3.25.
