St.Truiden vs Eupen Prediction
St.Truiden were denied a third straight win by Oostende, who got the better of them with a narrow 1-0 scoreline last week. Despite recording three shots on target in that latter matchup, the hosts failed to get their names on the scoresheet and subsequently made the trip back home without so much as a consolation goal.
Nevertheless, the home team are still holding to a spot in the top ten and are currently three points ahead of Eupen as well.
On the other hand, the visitors are on a promising run of form at the moment. Impressively, the guests have been recording consecutive wins in their past two games, and are unbeaten in their previous three on the trot.
Be that as it may, it needs saying that two of those three clashes were in the comforts of their home. On the road, Eupen have stumbled four times in their last five outings alone.
In sharp contrast, St.Truiden have admitted defeat just twice in their past eight games here. Moreover, both of those losses came against sides that are currently dwelling in the top ten.
Taking into account that the visitors have not come out on top in any of their last two trips to this stadium either, Eupen are the outright underdogs to secure the bragging rights in this one.
However, the hosts have shared the spoils five times at home this season. Given that their last meeting with this foe here had also witnessed both teams salvage a point each, a Draw no bet is sizing up to be the safest punt.
Furthermore, goals have been in abundance whenever these two sides square up against each other at this venue. In fact, all of their past four h2h meetings here have featured no less than four goals or more, on the final scorecards.
Additionally, ten of the twenty goals that Eupen have scored so far have come from their clashes on the road. As such, count on both teams to rack up the goals tally this weekend.
