De Buffalo’s drew to Royale Union SG on boxing day while they themselves booked a semi final berth of Belgium Cup against Club Brugge after defeating St. Liege in the quarter finals by 3-1. On the opening match of the year, they lost to Alkmaar at a club friendly.

On the other hand, Kortrijk resides at the 8th position on the table with 31points. Of the 20 matches played, they won on 8 games while drawing 7 times and losing on 5 other occasions. Their total goals to conceding ratio stands at 26:22.

De Kerels were kicked out of the Belgium Cup by Anderlecht by 0-3 at the quarter finals but they are triumphing a hat-trick win in the First Division A. Their latest league fixture against Seraing saw a 2-0 win before Christmas.

Over their prior 6 games, Hein Vanhaezebrouck’s Gent have found the back of the net a total of 10 times with an average scoreline of 1.67. They are also unbeaten in their previous 3 league matches at home.

Coming into this fixture, KV Kortrijk haven’t been defeated in their previous 5 away league schedules. They have also won the last 3 h2hs in a row.

We envisage a home win to occur this Friday as Gent are excellent at home winning 7 out of the 10 games played at Ghelamco Arena this season. Also the average performance of visitors at away matches makes it pretty obvious.
