Waasland-Beveren vs Royal Antwerp Prediction
Waasland-Beveren admitted their tenth defeat of the season last week on the road after Charleroi slotted two unanswered goals past them by the end of the ninety minutes. Disappointingly, the hosts have just one win to boast of from their last seven games in the running.
At the moment, the home side are just two points shy of hitting rock bottom in the cluster as well.
Meanwhile, Royal Antwerp have been faring a lot better in their respective campaign. Their last clash at home saw them take down KV Mechelen by a 1-0 scorecard, while their previous outing saw them hold Gent to a 1-1 draw.
It is also worth mentioning that Royal Antwerp have not been at the losing end in any of their past four games on the trot.
To make matters worse, Waasland-Beveren have tasted success just once on home this season. Taking into account that their last h2h clash here also saw Royal Antwerp come out on top, it goes without saying that Wassland-Beveren have no reason to have their hopes up this week.
Furthermore, irrespective of the result, the hosts have found the back of the net in each of their home clashes so far. However, they have done so at a cost. They have conceded nineteen goals in the process, which is the most by any side at home as of now.
In addition, the guests have been clinical in the final third as well, and have scored thirteen goals from their last nine outings in the league. As such, expect nothing short of a high scoring affair when the two sides lock horns this week.
