Anderlecht to win it to nil
Anderlecht have the head to head advantage in this fixture, especially at home; they’ve won seven of the last 10 times Oostende came visiting, losing just once. Furthermore, Oostende have won just one of their last five games; it’s even worse considering they failed to score in three of their last four games. In contrast, Anderlecht have been one of the best teams in Belgium this season; they have won four of their last five games, and are unbeaten in their last six games. Additionally, Anderlecht kept two clean sheets in their last three games, conceding just one goal. With this in mind, Anderlecht will likely win this match, they should also keep a clean sheet in the process.
No way both sides score
Oostende have struggled in front of goal recently; they blanked in three of their last four games, scoring just one goal in those four games. It’s worth noting that Oostende’s games have mostly been one-sided when it comes to goals; at least one side failed to score in all of their last four games. On the other hand, Anderlecht have kept three clean sheets in their last seven league games, whilst failing to score in two of them; both teams scored in just two of Anderlecht’s last seven league games. We should expect at least one of these teams to keep a clean sheet.
Backing fewer than four goals
Oostende’s games have mostly been on the low-scoring side; five of their last seven games went below the 2.5 goal margin. As a matter of fact, three of Oostende’s last four games went under 1.5. Similarly, Anderlecht have had their fair share of low-scoring games, especially in the league; five of their last seven league games went under 2.5. It’s also important to mention that six of both teams’ last seven respective league games went under 3.5; and considering the odds, we’re picking the safer under 3.5 goals option.
