Oostende vs Anderlecht Prediction
Oostende is yet to win a clash in the new edition of the Jupiler League. Their winless run in the campaign doesn’t support their ground advantage in the game. Since the Sporting is likely to play that to their advantage, it will be safer to back Anderlecht on a draw no bet in the encounter.
Furthermore, Vincent Kompany’s men have slotted in 6 goals within the three league fixtures. With the favorites playing away from home, their attacks will not have much force. So, the tip for under 3.5 goals will probably be the best bet for the punters.
