Gent vs Royal Excel Mouscron Predictions and Match Preview

Gent vs Royal Excel Mouscron
Belgium – First Division A
Date: Sunday, 10th February 2019
Kick-off at 19.00 UK/ 20.00 CET
Venue: Ghelamco Arena (Gent).

The Buffalos are fiercely being pursued by Anderlecht in the quest for the Champions League. The surplus of just one point is virtually a palace of cards, and the team must take advantage of their remaining games, and their home-ties at all cost.

Les Hurlus is a perfect example for those who do not understand what kind of effect, playing in front of your home crowd brings. The team has posted the absolute best defensive stats at home, while they have not even replicated an iota of that form on the road. In fact, only a handful of teams have conceded more goals than them, in away ties.

The hosts sure do take hold of the favorites tag in this fixture.

Gent vs Royal Excel Mouscron Prediction

Bernd Storck’s men found the back of the net in their last six matches in a row, and in six of their last eight games on the road. Also, both teams netted goals in the last four h2h ties, and in six of the last eight. The last two meetings at this venue also achieved the same result. Importantly, despite being such a high-scoring team, De Buffalos have a goal difference of just four, which is the least for the teams in the top tier, and by quite a distance.

Going on, the team has secured impressive results notwithstanding their leaky defense. They were unbeaten in their last six matches on the trot, 12 of their last 14 overall ties, and most notably, has a 100 % winning record in home h2h-ties. Also, they managed to score two or more in every one of these, except for one.

It’s all boiling out to be a high-scoring win for the hosts, with goals from either side.
