Anderlecht win

Anderlecht are unbeaten in nine matches coming into the game. Even the team has dropped points in two out of the last three league matches, they are in a good shape compared to Mechelen, who have lost two out of the last three competitive matches. Apart from a win over strugglers Seraing, Mechelen have not had much joy of late. Even with home advantage, Mechelen may end up losing by a narrow margin.

Total goals over 2.5

The last five games for Mechelen have produced over 2.5 goals on three occasions. Anderlecht enjoy similar statistics due to their immense scoring run with the team managing over 4.5 goals in two out of the last five league matches. The likelihood of producing over 2.5 goals is rather high due to Mechelen being very poor at the back. The recent clean sheet against Seraing is the only positive for Mechelen from a defensive standpoint.

Both teams to score – yes

Mechelen have been able to get goals in the last four matches across all competitions. Anderlecht have shown defensive complications in recent games and conceding late goals have been a problem for the team.
