Standard Liege vs Anderlecht Prediction
Standard Liege failed to record a third successive win in the league last week after Mouscron did just enough to post a 2-2 scorecard. The hosts were in line to make the trip back home empty-handed in that latter matchup after the found themselves 2-1 down and reduced to nine men at the end of the ninety minutes.
However, a stoppage-time goal from Maxime Lestienne ensured them a point at the last blast of the whistle. Nevertheless, with just two defeats from their past seven clashes in the top flight, the hosts are currently sitting third on the ladder, one point behind second-placed Gent.
On the other hand, Anderlecht dropped points in their most recent matchup with Charleroi after their clash ended in a stalemate. The visitors are without a taste of success in their past three games on the trot and have just two wins to boast of from their last six.
To pile on even more misery, the away side have not looked sharp in their outings this term. They have come away with all three points just twice so far.
It is also worth mentioning that Anderlecht have been at the losing end in each of their last three visits to this stadium. With Standard Liege stumbling just once on home soil, Anderlecht have little or no chance of coming out on top this weekend.
Furthermore, the guests have had their names on the scoresheet in three of their last four outings. And have scored six goals in the process as well.
Meanwhile, Standard Liege have conceded a goal or more in each of their past two games league games here.
Taking into account that both teams have also found the back of the net together in three of their previous four h2h meetings at this venue, count on Anderlecht to deprive Standard Liege of a clean sheet come Sunday.
