Gent vs Kortrijk Match Predictions and Expert Tips

KAA Gent has been dominating this match as they have 11 wins while Kortrijk has 5 wins from the last 20 duels. It means only 4 draws were recorded during that period. Notably, only one of the 4 draws was in the last 10 league meetings. We have the best free Gent vs Kortrijk as follows:

Gent to Win First Half

We have Gent as the favourite to win the first half of this clash with Kortrijk. The bookies have handed Gent a massive boost to win the game at 73% with odds 1.35. The team always wins 78% of their matches with such odds.  Note that Gent has 3 clean sheets in their last five games while Kortrijk has only one such outcome in as many games. The challenge of playing away from home is another reason why we expect Gent to lead at the interval.

Over 2.5 Goals

Our second prediction for the game is over 2.5 Goals. While Gent has had a fairly impressive defensive run, Kortrijk has suffered several mishaps at the back. Gent has leaked 20 goals on 19 games, which is slightly above a goal per game. On the other hand, Kortrijk has conceded 35 goals in every game, which is only 3 goals short of 2 goals leaked per match.

Gent Over 1.5 Goals

With Gent being the favourites to win this game, we think they will equally be the side that scores the most goals in the matchup. Bet on the hosts to score at least 2 goals in this game. A win for Gent full-time doesn’t have a very attractive price so backing the hosts to lead and the break and also in the goal market should be a good bet.

Gent vs Kortrijk First Division A Fixture Preview

Gent

Gent is expected to stage a strong performance in this game. They have a good defence and so is their attacking. Gent has scored 32 goals in 19 games. Half of the goals scored have been in 9 home games. They are 7th in a home run. This is another chance for Gent to get to the top four in home performance and we think they will do it.

Hein van Haezebrouck Updates:

After a humiliating loss to Union Saint Gilloise, the Buffalos’ coach has emphasised the need to acquire a new striker and strengthen the defensive line. After the end of the first half of the season, it has become apparent just how short the boss has been able to be. According to rumours, Poland’s Kamil Piatkowski is close to arriving from Red Bull Zalsbutg.

Kortrijk

Kortrijk has been weak defensively so far this season. They have let in 36 goals in 19 games, which is only one goal short of those scored by Gent in as many fixtures. Moreover, Kortrijk has the 6th-worst away run after bagging 10 points in 9 trips. Because they have been the weaker side in this game, we don’t expect away victory.

Adrian Custovic Updates:

The team led by the Bosnian coach decided to loan Didier Lamkel Ze, who will now play for Wydad Casablanca in Morocco. Custovic was no longer taking into account the Cameroonian player, who had a dismal start to the season and scored just one goal from a penalty kick in 10 starts. The Guys will try to acquire the services of a midfielder to meet the demands of the coach, who is unhappy with the performance of some of the veteran players.
