Gent vs Royal Excel Mouscron
Belgium – Jupiler Pro League
Date: Monday, 15 February 2021
Kick-off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Ghelamco Arena (Gent).
Mid-table Gent has slid down to the bottom half of the table with their consecutive draws in form. The host has been unbeaten in their last five matches, with four draws in it. These draws show that the home team carries a shaky defense in the back-line opening up chances for the opponents. They will play after sharing the spoils in a 2-2 encounter at home with Eupen in their schedule.
Mouscron broke their unbeaten run in the league lately with their 12th defeat this season. They lost to Kortrijk in the campaign with a 0-3 score on the board at home. Visiting a side sitting above them on the table after a home defeat will not be the ideal conditions for the away team. However, they have picked up points in recent clashes, which keeps the hope alive for them to avoid relegation this term.

Gent vs Royal Excel Mouscron Prediction
Gent has won in five of their six h2h clashes at home with the guest. Their last three wins have all seen the same scoreline at 3-1 in favor of the former. Keeping this in mind, we can expect a high-scoring affair at Ghelamco Arena in the Jupiler League on Monday. Another reason to back over 2.5 goals in the clash is the host’s 36 goals scored in 26 appearances so far this season.
The home win in full-time will probably be the best bet for the punters. Considering their ground advantage and the slight edge on the league position on the table over the visitor. Besides, Mouscron has been winless for the past three matches in the campaign schedule.
