Antwerp vs Anderlecht Predictions & Match Preview

Royal Antwerp vs Anderlecht
Belgium – Playoff Championship
Date: Sunday, 12th May 2019
Kick-off at 13.30 UK/ 14.30 CET
Venue: Bosuilstadion (Antwerp).

Antwerp is in the third position in the Championship Group after seven match-days are over. While the second spot is still within reach, a deficit of six points is quite a bit to overcome with just nine remaining to play for. With that in mind, the likely target the team will have in mind would be to get into the Europa League qualifying rounds.

Anderlecht is second to last in this group and needs to outscore Liege by seven points from the next three match-days to place themselves in the fourth and final European spot, which would afford them to take part in the playoffs final to the Europa League.

Royal Antwerp vs Anderlecht Head-to-head (h2h)

  • Seven of the last ten wins belonged to the teams at home.

  • Three of the last four games had goals from both teams.
  • Four of the last seven matches at this venue had over 2.5 goals.

Royal Antwerp vs Anderlecht Prediction

Antwerp was unbeaten in five of their last six games and won four of these last six as well. They repeated the feat in eight of their last eleven home ties as well. Anderlecht, meanwhile, was winless in six of their last seven fixtures and lost five of them. On the road, the team was winless in 14 of their last 19 matches, and embarrassingly lost 13 of them.

With Antwerp having the home advantage, and a good chance to keep possession of their European spot, count on them to have a good showing this Sunday. Moreover, with Anderlecht having just a minimal and outside chance to make it to the top-four, the team won’t be motivated enough to put up a great fight. Expect the hosts to have a good time on the pitch this Sunday. Also, do consider that Anderlecht failed to score a single goal in their last three road ties while conceding nine in total.
