Gent vs Standard Liege
Belgium – First Division A
Date: Friday, 22 February 2019
Kick-Off at 19:30 UK
Venue: GHELAMCO-arena, Gent
Gent have dropped four points behind the First Division A top 6 with narrow losses to Royal Excel Mouscron and Waasland-Beveren in their last two outings, now hosting Standard Liege for their Matchday 27 clash looking to finally return to the winning ways despite another tough challenge at GHELAMCO-arena looming.
De Buffalo’s have seen an eight-game unbeaten streak in front of the home crowd ended and now have a lot to prove if they’re to make the Championship round late in the campaign, desperate to retain consistency at this point.
However, Standard Liege seem to be in a better place at this point and after bouncing back to a great streak with a 3-1 home win over Lokeren, we should see them in great spirits again. They’ve seen a 2-0 loss at Genk interrupt their lengthy unbeaten streak beforehand but Michel Preud’homme’s men recuperated quickly, boasting great goalscoring spell of form and enjoying such a moment despite conceding goals on the regular as well.
Gent vs Standard Liege: Head-to-head
Standard Liege have beaten Gent in a 3-2 thriller earlier this term, with goals from Djenepo, M’Poku, and Emond.
Les Rouges have thus connected a three-game winning streak in head-to-head clashes going back as far as April 2018.
Gent last beat the tough rivals back in November 2017, turning a narrow clash their way with a goal from Roman Yaremchuk.
Gent vs Standard Liege: Prediction
We will now back Standard Liege to keep up their fine streak in head-to-head clashes and snatch an important point at GHELAMCO-arena, going for a Draw at 3.50 and hoping for another narrow occasion very tough to turn any way.
We do feel we’re in for goals and with both sides regularly netting and conceding goals lately, sticking with a YES on Both teams to score seems like buying money for old rope at 1.61! We’ve seen nine goals in their last two matchups, which does prove to such a point as well.
