Oostende vs St-Truiden: Preview, Prediction and Betting Tips

Oostende vs St-Truiden
Belgian First Division A
Date: Friday, 30th September 2016,
Kick-off at 19:30 UK
Venue: Versluys Arena, Oostende.

A new round of Belgium Division A is kicking off this weekend and it is offering us a lot of very interesting match – ups and betting possibilities. Two middle – table teams Oostende and St Truiden will collide on Friday evening at Versluys Arena. If we are going to judge by the odds offered by bookmakers, the home squad is the one having the edge at the moment. No one was surprised with that decision because St Truiden are considered to be one of the worst visiting teams in the league. Their last official victory on the road was achieved in February.

KV Oostende are currently only one point away from reaching the playoff line, which was the primary goal for this season, set by their club board. Their head manager Vanderhaeghe has been doing a phenomenal job since he took over earlier this year. He was the one who “discovered” 26 – year old striker Musona. This player has been carrying the whole squad so far by netting four times and providing two assists for his teammates.

Oostende vs St-Truiden: Head-to-Head Stats

These two opponents haven’t played a lot of games against each other recently, mainly because of the fact that Oostende were founded in 1984. Five matches were played at Versluys Arena so far; two were won by the hosts, while St Truiden were victorious three times (including the last head – to – head match played in December 2015). We have seen only nine goals in those matches.

Oostende vs St-Truiden: Prediction

Two bets with great value have caught our eyes on this match. St Truiden have shown a lot of progress in their last match on the road played against Gent, even though it was a loss. Their defending improved, so we don’t think this team will concede more than one goal in this match.
