Kick-Off at 19:00 UK
Venue: Ghelamco Arena, Gent
Even though team is playing really good lately, KAA Gent are still failing to reduce the gap from table leaders Club Brugge and get more involved into the title race. Their fans have been waiting for domestic title for five years now. This weekend’s opponent is St Truiden.
Visitors have been extremely inconsistent in the last four weeks, achieving two victories and two losses against bottom-half table teams. St Truiden are regarded as massive underdogs going against Gent.

Gent vs St Truiden Prediction
Gent might be exhausted after a trip to Italian capital and Europa League clash against AS Roma on Thursday, but they still have much higher quality than St Truiden. This squad has won five out of the last six matches in First Division A against much tougher opposition.
Canadian striker Jonathan David has carried this squad in numerous occasions so far. He is league’s top goal scorer with 15 goals, and we expect him to lead the attack against St Truiden as well. Home win HT and FT at 2.00 odds is going to be our primary betting choice.
St Truiden are currently sitting in 12th position with 32 points, which does feel completely safe when it comes to relegation. The average number of goals scored in their away days this season is well over three, so consider adding Over 2.5 FT as an alternative option.
