Gent has lost all three Europa League fixtures in the group stage this season but has seen both teams score in the previous two EL encounters in their schedule.
They will return home after losing 2-1 on the road against Crvena Zvezda to host the reverse fixture with the same opponents.
Crvena Zvezda has also seen both teams score in their last two fixture in the EL schedule. The visitor will come in hot with a two-game winning streak in their group stage form this term.
Both these victories came in the comforts of their home, and their only loss in the campaign had come away from home.

Gent vs Red Star Belgrade Prediction
Gent has won none of their EL group stage fixtures this season and is not likely to change that trend soon in the campaign. The host has only two wins in their last eight clashes across all major contests in their schedule and features six defeats within the last ten overall games.
In the meantime, Red Star Belgrade or Crvena Zvezda is on a six-game winnings streak in their overall schedule for competitive games. The visitor has scored 8 goals within their last two EL fixtures and has won their previous two outings in their overall form.
We can expect a BTTS in the game as a possibility as the host enjoys the ground advantage. Besides, we saw the home team scoring in the recent two EL clashes despite the loss. Also, the visitor has seen both teams score in five of their last six wins in their schedule.
The double chance favoring Crvena Zvezda will probably be the best bet for the punters, as the visitor seems to be more in control after the win from the reverse fixture against the host in the EL schedule.
