Gent vs Valerenga
Europe – UEFA Europa Conference League
Date: Thursday, 22 July 2021
Kick-off at 19:30 UK/ 20:30 CET
Venue: Ghelamco Arena.
Not only are Gent in great form, but they are also at home, and are from a great domestic league. Meanwhile, Valerenga are going through an inconsistent streak, and are conceding quite heavily. Likely, expect a win for Gent this Thursday at the Ghelamco Arena.
At present, Gent are scoring in huge numbers, and especially at home they have been on a long unbeaten streak.
They had finished seventh in the regular season in the prestigious Belgian top flight the past campaign, and they topped the Play-Off II table, thus ensuring a ticket to the Conference League.
In the meantime, Valerenga are from the Norwegian Eliteserien, which is qualitatively and competitively inferior to their Belgian counterparts. They are also going through a poor run at the moment, and importantly so on the road.
The expectation is that Gent will go after a convincing victory this Thursday, in order to avoid any worries going into the second leg.
Gent vs Valerenga: Head-to-head (h2h)
- This is the first h2h meeting between the two teams.
Gent vs Valerenga Prediction
The Belgians were unbeaten in eight of their past nine overall fixtures, and in the process they had also gone on a five-game winning streak.
At home, they were unbeaten in 12 of their past 13 appearances at home, and had scored two or more goals in eight of their previous twelve games at this venue.
On the other hand, their counterparts were winless in ten of their last fifteen overall matches, and they had remained winless in seven of their former ten road trips as well.
Considering these observations, expect Gent to have the upper hand this Thursday, and secure a win.
However, note that Valerenga have been scoring goals consistently on the road, and for the reason, count on them to find the back of the net at least once at the Ghelamco Arena.
