Belgium – First Division A
Date: Thursday, 26 December 2019
Kick-off at 13:30 UK/ 14:30 CET
Venue: Stade Le Canonnier (Mouscron).
Mechelen may have faced some losses recently, but it cannot be held against them as the opponents were some of the best teams in the league. Moving on though, these losses will certainly drive them to go after the three points against the out-of-form Mouscron, in spite of the away handicap.

Royal Excel Mouscron vs KV Mechelen Prediction
Mouscron were at home the last match-day, and were held to a 1-1 draw by Charleroi. Meanwhile, Mechelen had recorded a narrow 1-0 win over Oostende the previous game week, with the winner coming late in the 70th minute.
As of now, it may seem that Mechelen are going through a period of struggle. But on close inspection, we could see that a lion’s share of their recent losses had come against some of the very best teams in the competition.
On the other hand, Mouscron are a genuinely struggling squad at the moment.
For further clarity – understand that Mechelen were unbeaten in seven of their previous eleven overall games, and on the road, they had won four of their prior six trips. They had also scored two or more goals in four of the last six matches away from home.
Meanwhile, Mouscron have had a total of just two wins from their prior fourteen match-ups, and at home, they were winless in seven of their past eight appearances.
Going on, in this past decade, only once have Mechelen lost against this opponent, while they themselves have even gone on a winning streak of five h2h encounters in this period (2014 – 2016).
Also, Mechelen have scored two or more goals in the previous eight h2h clashes, and have never once failed to find the back of the net against Mouscron in the last ten years.
Moreover, at this venue, Mechelen hold a 100% unbeaten record in h2h fixtures, and have only once failed to score two or more goals here in the prior ten years.
Taking into account all these observations, rightfully expect Mechelen to be the better team on the pitch this Thursday, and for them to put clearly a better performance than Mouscron.
