*These odds from Ladbrokes were correct at the time of writing but are subject to change*

Royal Antwerp’s good run at the start of the season through to the first quarter was impressive. However, they have now gone without a win in five consecutive matches ahead of this clash with three draws registered on the bounce before this weekend’s clash with Gent. Will the host turn the draws into a win? Read this Antwerp vs Gent preview for details.

Antwerp vs Gent Match Predictions by Punditfeed

Antwerp has now bagged three draws in a row of 0-0 against Anderlecht, 2-2 with Brugge and most recently 3-3 against Westerlo. On the other hand, Gent hasn’t lost in their last five matches with 3 wins and two draws. Here are how tipsters at Punditfeed are predicting Antwerp vs Anderlecht match to end:

Gent to Score First

We are tipping Gent to score the first-match goal. The visitors have been more consistent than Antwerp. For example, while Gent didn’t lose in the last five, Antwerp suffered two defeats in as many Pro League matches. Moreover, Gent has three consecutive clean sheets of 2 wins and 1 draw ahead of this duel while Antwerp has only one in their last five.

Both Teams to Score

Both teams to score is our second prediction for Antwerp vs Gent. Unfortunately, this will not be a sail-through for Gent despite being the side with better form. Gent lost all the last five meetings, so with home backing, Antwerp should score at least a goal in the game.

Under 10.5 Corners

This will be a hard-fought First Division A clash. Antwerp looking to get back to the top of the table but that will take a few more matches. On the flip side, Gent has a better form ahead of the clash, so the visitors will be no pushover. We expect fewer than 10 corners in the clash.

Antwerp vs Gent Fixture Preview

Antwerp

Antwerp has been quite resilient in recent games. However, inconsistency has been a major concern for the hosts in their quest for the Championship round. They have no victory in the last five, so while they defeated Gent in the last five, this could be another difficult game for Mark van Bommel’s men.

Gent

Gent’s head coach, Hein van Haezebrouck has been in charge of the visitors since December 2022. During that period, he has managed 116 games, averaging 1.77 points which are quite modest. The visitors are 5th on the First Division A table and with a win, they should make it to the top-four fold should Club Brugge fail to win their next game.
