Kortrijk vs Gent Predictions and Match Preview

Kortrijk vs Gent
Belgium- First Division A.
Date: Sunday, 27th January 2019.
Kick-Off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Guldensporen Stadion (Kortrijk).

The Guys have won only a match in their recent 5 competitive games. That was at home, which makes them victorious in 3 previous home games. Less than 2.5 goals were scored in 4 of their most recent matches at home.

They are fresh from a loss against Standard Liege away from home. The major problem they are facing now is defensive errors. A total of 32 goals have been given away by the team from West Flanders till now. Against a team like Gent with more than 30 goals scored, this will prove costly for the hosts.

Gent is 6th in the table after that 1-0 win over Anderlecht. Now both of them are equal on points but the latter is better in goal difference. They conceded 36 of the 39 goals they scored all season, so like most teams, the defense is below par.

The Buffalos have won 3 of their recent 5 competitive games. Three of those 5 matches had more than 2.5 goals at the full time. But they have only a win in the 5 previous matches away from home. That came against St Truiden in the Cup. Over 2.5 goals were also scored in 3 of those matches as well.

Gent will be looking to improve on that poor away form and defense, while the hosts will be hell-bent in preserving their unbeaten run.

Kortrijk vs Gent: Head-to-head (h2h)

  • The Buffalos have won 3 of their recent 5 meetings with Kortrijk across all venues.
  • More than 2.5 goals were scored and both sides found goals in 4 of those 5 games in all competitions.
  • Both teams have a win each in 5 previous h2h matches at this ground.
  • Less than 2.5 goals were scored in 4 of those 5 meetings between them here.

Kortrijk vs Gent: Prediction

Both these teams are good at scoring goals as the hosts have 29 and Gent has 39 goals in their league games. Each of them has scored in their 3 previous home and away matches respectively as well. Also, the last 3 meetings between them at this ground saw both of them scoring. Thus we can bet on both sides finding goals on Sunday with 1.53 odds.

The hosts are on an unbeaten run that is running for 4 matches. The visitors are without a win in their previous 5 matches on the road. So I think this will be a close game. Thus a bet can be placed on a double chance of the match to end as a draw or the home side to win with 1.72 odds.

  • Both teams to score @ 1.53 (6/11).
