Gent vs Sint-Truidense Predictions

  • Gent took a league-high 36 points from their 17 regular-season home matches last season.
  • The hosts’ record of 30 goals conceded in 34 regular-season games, meanwhile, was only bettered by Union Saint-Gilloise.
  • Sint-Truidense scored 16 goals on the road in regular-season play last season, the third worst record in Belgium’s top flight.

Gent look to kick-start campaign

Having finished fifth in the Belgian top-flight last term, Gent will be hoping for European qualification as a bare minimum this campaign, which they began with a creditable 2-2 draw at Standard Liege last week. Gent managed 25 attempts and 67 per cent possession as they dominated that game, but a home match against Sint-Truidense may be more routine.

Indeed, despite Hein Vanhaezebrouck’s reputation for an offensive style of play, one of Gent’s biggest successes last term was their defensive record. Only Union Saint-Gilloise (27) conceded fewer than their 30 goals against in regular-season play, with the same side being the only outfit to better Gent’s record of just 16 home goals conceded. On their own turf, meanwhile, Gent took 36 regular-season points, a league-high tally shared with Club Brugge.

Sint-Truiden finished in ninth last season, safely ensconced in mid-table, but their tally of 42 regular-season goals was the worst in the top half, and their record of just 16 away goals was worse than all but two top-flight outfits. Last week’s 1-1 draw at home to Union SG, in which they managed 40 per cent possession and three shots on target, suggests Sint-Truiden will continue to toil at the sharp end, and they may struggle to land a blow on Gent.

Hosts set for shutout win

Given their terrific defensive record last term and the lack of value available on the results market, backing Gent to win to nil looks the best play for Saturday’s encounter.

However, Sint-Truiden did end the 2021-22 regular season with a nine-match unbeaten run and will be no pushovers, making a narrow one-goal home victory a solid correct score prediction.
