Anderlecht won’t win
Although Anderlecht are coming off a loss, they’ve been pretty solid the past couple of months; Vincent Kompany’s men have lost just once in their last nine games across all competitions. It’s also important to point out that Anderlecht have been one of the best home teams in the league; they lost just twice in 16 home games this season. However, Anderlecht will be going up against Charleroi, one of the best road teams in the league; Sporting Charleroi have won eight of the 16 games they’ve played away from home, losing just four times. We’re going for value here, and considering the odds, we believe that Charleroi will steal at least one point today.
Both teams to hit the net
Although both teams have not conceded a lot of goals recently, they’ve been very good at finding the net. Anderlecht scored in seven of their last nine games; they scored eight goals in their last four games alone. Similarly, Sporting Charleroi have scored their fair share of goals; they scored 10 goals in their last four games. We would also like to mention that meetings between these sides have not been one-sided in goalscoring terms; as both teams found the back of the net in seven of their last 10 clashes. With this in mind, both teams will likely score in this match.
Goals will rain
We mentioned that Charleroi scored 10 goals in their last four games; we should also point out that their games have mostly been on the high-scoring side. Four of Charleroi’s last five games went over 2.5, with three of those games going over 3.5. Like Charleroi, Anderlecht have had their fair share of high-scoring games; three of Anderlecht’s last four matches went above the 2.5 goal line. Additionally, these teams tend to score a lot of goals when they play each other; seven of their last 10 encounters saw at least three goals scored. On that note, we should expect a few goals in this match.
