De Kustboys have been regularly scoring numbers of goals at Versluys Arena, though, and this will give them high hopes they can impress in the attacking their once again, as Gert Verheyen enjoys an attacking approach to the fixtures.

Royal Excel Mouscron have, on the other hand, played just two pre-season games and we have seen them beat Ronse 0-2 but suffer a far more convincing 5-2 loss to Genk, which could prove a tough defeat to bounce back from. However, the stakes are now higher and we should now see a very motivated outfit – despite only just escaping relegation last season with a very poor streak late in the campaign.

Oostende vs Royal Excel Mouscron: Head-to-head

  • Royal Excel Mouscron have beaten the rivals in both of their last two head-to-head clashes (1-0 and 0-1).
  • They have somewhat better overall records, with five wins, four draws, and three losses.
  • We’ve come to get used to very narrow clashes between the sides, with little to decide on the points.

Oostende vs Royal Excel Mouscron: Prediction

We will now back Oostende to return the favour and bag a narrow home win on the day, where it comes off as more of a banker bet at 1.53 and has attracted many big hitters already. We have seen both sides regularly net numbers of goals and this promises another great contest between the sides.

We do believe the visitors will get on the scoresheet as well and with that in mind, we’ll now also go for Over 2.5 goals FT at 1.80. With both sides regularly scoring and conceding goals lately too, this does seem a generous pick at this point.

Oostende vs Royal Excel Mouscron: Bet Tips

  • Home win @ 1.53
  • Over 2.5 goals FT @ 1.80.
