Mechelen vs Anderlecht Predictions & Match Preview

Mechelen vs Anderlecht
Belgium First Division A
Date: Saturday, 15 February 2020
Kick-Off at 19:30 UK
Venue: AFAS Stadion Achter de Kazerne.

After all the good work and results achieved in the opening three months of First Division A campaign, Mechelen’s ship can’t stop sinking. This squad has lost five matches in a row in all competitions now, being desperate to end the bad streak.

The opponent for this weekend is again, not going to be easy. Anderlecht have started playing much better lately and taken a big leap towards top six bracket, trying to avoid playing the relegation group in the second part of season at all cost.

Mechelen vs Anderlecht: Head-to-head

There were 35 duels between these two teams in the past. Understandably, Anderlecht as one of the most successful teams in Belgium’s history have 22-5 advantage in terms of victories.

The last two clashes have ended without a winner though, 0-0 and 2-2. Five out of the last seven have seen both teams score at least one goal.

Mechelen vs Anderlecht: Prediction

Even bookmakers are expecting to see a tight clash. Home win odds are at 2.70 right now, while away win is at 2.50. It is also interesting to add that Mechelen’s games had the highest number of goals in First Division A so far 3.12 per duel, and Anderlecht had the lowest at 2.20.

Visitors from Brussels have much better form at the moment, beating Cercle Brugge on the road and Mouscron at home. The most recent clash saw them draw against Gent 1-1.

Getting a point away from Gent is not an easy task to do nowadays. That just confirms the great shape of Anderlecht. They should continue their winning streak against a team which has five losses in a row.

As for the secondary tip, we see good value in backing Anderlecht’s Marco Kana to score anytime. He has been playing in the starting roster as a forward for four weeks straight now.
