Anderlecht Anticipates Victory

After failing to secure a spot in Europe’s elite league for two consecutive years, Anderlecht fans hope for success under Vincent Kompany. The hosts will battle it out with Antwerp at Lotto Park on Saturday in the Division A Championship Round. Only two teams can qualify for UCL at the end of the competition. We are backing Anderlecht to edge out Antwerp for the simplest fact that the hosts are in great shape and form right now. The hosts have had massive improvement under Kompany. They held Brugge to a 2-2 draw in the first game of the Championship round. However, Antwerp failed to secure victory in their first game, in which they lost 3-2 at home to Genk.

More than One Goal for the Hosts

Division A Champion Round started with several goals by the competitors. Anderlecht secured a point away at Club Brugge in a fixture that ended 2-2. On the other hand, Antwerp scored two goals despite losing 3-2 to Genk. While the hosts haven’t scored many goals consistently, we expect them to net at least two goals in this game. Antwerp conceded at least two goals in five of their last seven fixtures.

Both Teams to Score

Another value bet is backing both teams to find the net. Anderlecht has scored in eight of their last nine games. Moreover, Antwerp has found the net in seven of their last nine fixtures. Both teams come into this fixture having found the net at least once in their last four games.

Game Preview: Can Vincent Kompany take Anderlecht back to the European Stage?

After two years, Anderlecht hopes for a return to Champions League under former Manchester City skipper, Vincent Kompany. On the other hand, Antwerp was bundled out of this year’s Europa League in round 16. However, the visitors hope for a return to Europe’s biggest football stage.

Anderlecht

The visitors have registered 17 victories, 13 draws and 7 losses under their new manager. Vincent Kompany joined the Belgium Pro League outfit as a player before becoming a manager and has since secured a 4-1 win on the road against Antwerp manager, Franky Vercauteren. Playing the same manager at home is something we believe Kompany fancies, especially in an important fixture as the Champions League qualification round. Because defeating Antwerp presents Anderlecht with a golden chance of securing Champions League qualification, backing Kompany’s men to do the necessary is sensible.

Antwerp

Antwerp has reached this far because it is a competitive team in the Belgium Pro League. The visitors finished second in the first division A with two points above third-placed Anderlecht. However, losing both league fixtures to Anderlecht in the just concluded 2020/21 season is a cause for concern for Franky Vercauteren’s men. An interesting twist is that Antwerp’s only two victories against Anderlecht in the previous 10 encounters have come on the road.
