St.Truiden vs KV Mechelen Prediction
St.Truiden were given a run for their money last week by Gent, on the road, after the latter posted a thumping 4-1 scorecard. The hosts have not salvaged even a single point in their past two games on the trot, and have picked up the win just once in their previous four.
Miserably, the home team have now slumped down to twelfth on the ladder, ten points adrift of seventh-placed KV Mechelen.
On the other hand, the visitors have secured maximum points from their last two fixtures in the top flight. Their most recent clash, in particular, witnessed the guests make light work of Wassland-Beveren at home with four unanswered goals to their name.
Be that as it may, KV Mechelen have not been able to ensure a similar run of form in their outings as of late. Alarmingly, despite being boasting the second-best away statistics in the table, the visitors have admitted defeat in four of their previous five trips on the road.
To make matters worse, the guests have been at the losing end in each of their past three visits to this stadium. Taking into account that hosts have also stumbled just once in their last four games here, KV Mechelen’s chances of a win are certainly looking bleak.
However, the hosts have shared the spoils five times so far at home. Hence, back a double chance, just to be on the safer side.
Furthermore, St.Truiden have been found napping at the back far too many times on home soil. In fact, they have kept a clean sheet in just one of their last six encounters here.
Meanwhile, KV Mechelen have racked up five goals from their previous three outings alone. It is also worth mentioning that both teams had their names on the scoresheet together in the reverse fixture.
As such, count on the visitors to find the back of the net along with St. Truiden in this one.
