Both teams made plenty of changes to their last year squads, but they managed to keep main players for the new campaign. Most importantly for the hosts, Edmilson Junior is still there. The Brazilian right-winger was on the scoresheet in the mentioned 2-1 loss to Club Brugge at the weekend. We expect he head coach Michel Preud’homme to use a similar (if not the same) starting line-up to the one which took on Club Brugge on Sunday. This means Duje Cop should lead the line in a 4-2-3-1 formation.

Standard Liege vs Gent: Head-to-head

Gent were the more successful side over the course of history in matches against Standard.

The Buffalos won 28 and lost 23 of 62 clashes with the Liege side.

Nevertheless, the Red Devils won two and drew one of last three meetings with Gent, conceding just once in the process.

Interestingly, only one of last six head to head outings offered three or more goals.

Standard Liege vs Gent: Prediction

Gent mainly played amateur sides to test them in the pre-season period which is why it’s hard to evaluate their streak of eight wins and a draw in nine friendlies. PAOK (1-1 draw) and Strasbourg (1-0 win) were lone serious opponents along the way, but the coach Yves Vanderhaeghe can be satisfied with how his defensive line looked in these games.

The visitors will likely sit at the back and wait for their chances from counter-attacks which is why we see the value in the 1.75 odds offered for less than three goals scored in the match. Remember, only one of last six H2H games between these two likes saw three or more goals.

Standard Liege vs Gent: Bet Tips
