Tip Reasoning

Anderlecht have had a disappointing start to the season by their standards as after 14 rounds of fixtures they sit 4th in the league table with 27 points from a possible 42. They are currently 7 points behind league leaders Genk. They host Genk at the Stade Constant Vanden Stock in 3 weeks time so they will hope to make ground up before that heavyweight clash.

Gent are impressing many this season and currently sit in 5th position in the table with 23 points. They are 4 points adrift of their opponents so will be hoping to snatch all 3 points here this weekend and close the gap. They head into this game in good form with 3 wins in their last 4 including a 3-1 win against Kortijk last time out.

Anderlecht are unbeaten at home in the league this season with 4 wins and 3 draws from their 7 games. They have beaten Mouscron, Oostende, Standard Liege and Cercle Crugge whilst their draws have come against Antwerp, Sint-Truiden and Lokeren. Anderlecht have scored 15 goals at home in the league this season averaging 2.14 per game. They are prolific scorers in the 2nd half with 66.6% of their goals being scored after half time. Defensively Anderlecht have conceded 7 goals in their 7 games at home, keeping just 2 clean sheets in the process.

Gent have been decent away from home this season picking up 10 points from their 6 games on the road. They have beat Eupen, Cercle Brugge and Oostende, drawn to Antwerp and lost to Standard Liege and Mouscron. On the scoring front Gent have been prolific on the road, scoring 15 goals at a rate of 2.5 goals per game. They have managed to find the net in every away game this season and have scored in 14 of their last 15 away games in the league. At the other end their defence has been questionable, they have conceded 10 goals at a rate of 1.67 per game. This is not just a problem away from home either as they have conceded 16 goals in 8 home matches averaging 2 goals against per game.

Gent are ranked 2nd in the Over/Under table this season with their league games seeing on average 3.93 goals per game. Anderlecht sit 7th but still see 3.07 per game in the league. We see this game being high scoring with both teams finding the net, for that reason we are backing both teams to score and over 2.5 goals. On the correct score front we feel Gent’s scoring prowess will be enough to get a result out of the game but ultimately their defensively won’t be able to hold on to a victory. We are going for a 2-2 draw here this weekend.
