Royal Excel Mouscron vs Mechelen Prediction & Match Preview

Royal Excel Mouscron vs KV Mechelen
Belgium First Division A
Date: Friday, 14 August 2020
Kick-Off at 18:00 UK/ 19:00 CET
Venue: Stade Le Canonnier (Mouscron)

Both teams have started the new season with a draw. The home side played their season opener against Antwerp away from home. But this upcoming game was a major headache for them in recent years.

Mechelen started the season on a positive note. Even though they did not win the game against former champions Anderlecht, they showed great character to come back from two goals down and grab a well-deserved point from that match. Since they have a great record at this ground we can expect them to dominate possession and possibly win this tie.

The visitors have not lost any head to head matches at this ground. They have already played against one of the strongest teams in the league and picked up a point. So they are high on morale coming into this one.

The previous history between them shows that there was no shortage of goals. Both of them have found the net in four of their last five meetings across all venues. All five games at this ground saw goals at both ends of the field. Also, both teams have scored in their opening games as well. So I am backing a win for the visitors with goals from both teams.
