Kortrijk vs Royal Antwerp Belgium First Division A Predictions by LeagueLane

Kortrijk vs Royal Antwerp
Belgium – Jupiler Pro League
Date: Friday, 25 September 2020
Kick-off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Guldensporen Stadion (Kortrijk).

Kortrijk’s unbeaten run in the campaign as of late was hindered in the last encounter in their schedule on the road against Standard liege with a 2-1 scoreline. Returning home will be a comforting factor for Yves Vanderhaeghe and his boys, as he will get time to pick up his team from that away loss.

Royal Antwerp was at a better position in the table last term than the host. However, they are in a mixed form this season and have only 2 wins in their recent five league fixtures. They will visit on the back of a 2-2 draw at home against Eupen in the schedule.

Kortrijk vs Royal Antwerp Head-to-head (h2h)

  • The visitor has been unbeaten in their last four meetings.
  • Only one of their recent five clashes has ended in a draw.
  • Their previous encounter gave a 0-1 away win for Antwerp.
  • The host has recorded only two of their last five overall wins.

Kortrijk vs Royal Antwerp Prediction

After 6 league appearances each, both teams have scored 8 goals each in their form. But Antwerp has conceded 9 goals, which is 3 more than the host.

Keeping that in mind, we can expect the match to be a low-scoring affair and the tip for under 3.5 goals will probably meet the requirements in the clash.

Another reason to back this is their recent h2h history with each other. Only one of their last six h2h clashes has produced over 3 goals in a match.

The host enjoys the home ground advantage but hasn’t been successful in recent seasons when it is Antwerp at the other end. Their last two h2h home matches against Antwerp saw them losing to the latter in ninety minutes.

With their decent form on the road and overall league performance, the visitor is likely to create more opportunities in the encounter. The double chance favoring Royal Antwerp will probably be the best bet for the punters.
