Royal Antwerp vs Oostende
Belgium – First Division A
Date: Saturday, 29 February 2020
Kick-Off at 19:30 UK/ 20:30 CET
Venue: Bosuilstadion (Antwerp)
There is a significant difference between these two in the table. The hosts have almost secured themselves a spot in the Championship group. They have won 13 of their 27 home matches so far. But they are winless in their 4 recent league games. A win is a must to boost the morale of the home side.
Oostende is a poor away side losing 11 of their away matches. They are currently winless in 12 matches on the road. Their last win on the road came in September 2019. So we can expect a one-sided affair with the home team dominant throughout ninety minutes.
Royal Antwerp vs Oostende: Head-to-head (h2h)
- Antwerp is unbeaten in the last 3 head to head games.
- They have 2 wins and a loss against Oostende in their previous 5 clashes.
- In three of their most recent meetings, the score has less than 2.5 goals.
- The hosts remain unbeaten at home against Oostende in their last 3 h2h matches.
- Last time Oostende won this fixture away from home was back in September 2016.
Royal Antwerp vs Oostende: Prediction
Antwerp is a hard team to beat at home. They have never lost a home game in both cup and league since September 2019. Even though they are on a 2 match drawing streak we can expect them to keep the visitors at bay.
The visitors have the worst away record in this season. They have lost 11 games in their 13 matches on the road.
It will be a miracle if they upset Antwerp at home following a 10 match losing run. They failed to score in 7 recent away games also. I believe we may see only one team scoring this Saturday.
Antwerp defense is strong enough to withstand an attack that has scored less than a goal per match. So I am backing a clean sheet for the home side.
