These odds from Ladbrokes were correct at the time of writing.
Antwerp to bag win
Beerschot have been by far the worst team in the First Division A this season; they’ve played 29 league games so far, and they’ve lost 21 of them. It’s worth noting that Beerschot have won four of their 29 league games; however, those four wins were at home. Beerschot have no wins away from home this season; they’ve played 14 road games, with three draws and 11 losses. It doesn’t help that Beerschot will be facing a Royal Antwerp side that has beaten them in three consecutive encounters; Antwerp have no losses in five clashes between these two, with four wins and a draw. Considering Antwerp have won five of their last nine games; while Beerschot have lost all of their last three games, Antwerp should win.
We will see both sides score
Beerschot have conceded the highest number of goals in the league this season; they have no clean sheets in their last 15 games across all competitions. However, despite their poor form, Beerschot have scored a lot of goals recently; they found the net in seven of their last nine games. Similarly, Antwerp have scored in 17 of their last 18 games; on the other hand, they’ve conceded six goals in their last two games alone. Considering both teams scored in seven of Beerschot’s last nine games, we should expect goals at both ends.
Hosts will open the scoring
We mentioned that Beerschot have conceded in all of their last 15 games; it’s fair to note that they have a tendency to concede first. Beerschot conceded the first goal in all of their last five games. In contrast, Royal Antwerp found the net in 17 of their last 18 games; they bagged the first goal in five of their last seven games. Additionally, there have been five encounters between these teams, and Antwerp drew first blood in four of those five meetings; with this in mind, we’re making the prediction that Antwerp will score first.
