Belgium – First Division A
Date: Sunday, 12 August 2018
Kick-Off at 19:00 UK
Venue: GHELAMCO-Arena (Gent).
Closing match of the Belgian First Division A 3rd round is going to be contested between Gent and Waasland-Beveren on Sunday evening.
Home side had a fairly successful last season as they finished on 4th place and secured the place in Europa League. However, they opened the current campaign by picking up just a point and they are still searching for the first victory.
Stallone Limbombe and the lads played very disciplined football last season, they were decent in the front, while their defence did a very good job. Gent have been one of the best home sides in the competition as they allowed just three defeats when playing in front of their fans.
The visitors managed to avoid the relegation last season and they finished the campaign on 12th place. They didn’t have too much success in the Europa League group phase as they suffered six defeats in ten rounds.
Yannick Ferrera’s side has been pretty productive in front of the oppositions’ goal, however their poor defending costed them of snatching better position. Waasland-Beveren opened the current season with two draws.
Gent vs Waasland-Beveren: Head-to-head
Gent are enjoying an incredible 11-victory streak against their opponents.

Gent vs Waasland-Beveren: Prediction
Gent are strong favourites in this one and they should be able to book their first victory in the season.
Although the visitors haven’t been defeated yet, they shouldn’t hope of getting anything from this one and they’ll need to look further for the winning formula against these rivals.
The hosts have been involved in a couple of high scoring matches from the beginning of the season and they should be able to continue that streak.
In this one, the crowd should be able to enjoy at least three goals.
