Tip Reasoning

  • Both teams have scored in 3 of the last 6 meetings between these two clubs.
  • Both teams have scored in 5 of Kortrijk’s last 6 matches.
  • Both teams have scored in 3 of Antwerp’s last 4 matches.
  • The hosts have won 5 times at home while the visitors have lost 5 on the road.

The hosts have only lost one of their last five home games

A late equaliser from Mbokani spared Antwerp’s blushes in the 1st leg of this Belgian Cup Semi-Final after Stojanovic had given the visitors the lead in the 68th minute. The hosts had been handed a golden opportunity to take the lead shortly before the hour mark but Lamkel Ze failed to covert his penalty and Antwerp can only hope that doesn’t come back to haunt them on Thursday night.

The visiting side hasn’t won when these two sides have clashed a friendly back in 2016 and both teams have scored in three of teh duos’ last six encounters. Five of Kortrijk’s last six matches in all competitions have also seen both teams score, as have three of Antwerp’s last four outings, so you can see why we have backed goals to be scored at both ends of the pitch this Thursday.

The hosts have secured five wins at home in the league this season while their guests have already lost five times on the road, and after surviving the 1st leg, we have backed Kortrijk to win on Thursday. Kortrijk average 1.38 points per home game while Antwerp average 1.23 points per away game, with the hosts winning 38% of their matches and the visitors losing 38% of theirs.

Antwerp may end up regretting only drawing the 1st leg

Kortrijk score an average of 1.85 goals per home game, which is above the league average of 1.61, and concede an average of 1.54 goals while Antwerp score an average of 1.54 goals per away game and concede 1.46 goals, and we have backed a narrow 2-1 win for the hosts in Thursday’s 2nd leg. Both teams have scored in 69% of Kortrijk’s home games and 77% of Antwerp’s away matches, adding further weight to our prediction for Thursday’s clash and backing our correct score tip.

Over 2.5 goals have been scored in 69% of the hosts’ home games and 62% of the visitors away games, which ties in perfectly with our prediction for a 2-1 final scoreline on Thursday. Kortrijk have only kept clean sheets in 23% of their home games while Antwerp have managed to keep clean sheets in just 8% of their matches on the road, and we can’t see either side walking away from Thursday’s clash with a clean sheet to their name.

We’re confident that both teams will score in Thursday’s Semi-Final 2nd leg and we have predicted a final scoreline of 2-1 in favour of the hosts. Both teams have been playing well of late and know how to find the back of the net with regularity which is why we are backing both teams to score on Thursday but Kortrijk have the home advantage which we believe will prove crucial to the end result in what is expected to be a close and competitive ninety minutes.
