St.Truiden vs Oostende
Belgium – First Division A
Date: Monday, 24 August 2020
Kick-off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Stayen (Sint-Truiden).
The 3-1 loss on the road against Anderlecht will pull back the home team in the upcoming match, but in their comfort, the opponents were much stronger in that defeat.
Oostende, on the other hand, was behind the host in the table last season and is also yet to find a win this season. De Kustboys have started the season on the wrong foot, and the double loss in the schedule clearly states their problems in the middle.
The host had their opening match at the home end in victory, which will be a great advantaging returning home. However, the visitor will be on their consecutive trips in the schedule. They will visit after a 1-0 loss on the road against Sporting Charleroi last time out in the league.

St.Truiden vs Oostende Prediction
Even though it is too quick to judge the teams, St.Truiden has a slight edge over the visitors in closing the match into a home win by the final whistle. The draw no bet will probably be the safest bet considering the host’s problems in the back that have led to conceding 4 goals in two games this season.
The most common result in their h2h clashes with De Kustboys has been a 1-0 scoreline in recent times, and to be precise in four of the last five meetings at this venue. The tip for under 3.5 goals and the host to win either half in the game will thus be the best bets for the punters in the encounter.
