Firstly, it’s important to note that Gent have had Mechelen’s number in previous clashes between these teams; they lost just once in their last nine encounters with Mechelen, with six wins and two draws. Also, both teams have had contrasting results recently; as Gent have won four of their last five games, losing just one of their last seven games. Mechelen, on the other hand, have three losses in their last four games; they managed just two wins in their last nine games. Considering Mechelen tend to struggle against Gent, we’re predicting a win for the visitors.
Away side to open the scoring
Mechelen have a tendency to play conservatively, they usually don’t go all out to score goals, and as a result, they usually concede first. Wouter Vrancken’s men allowed the first goal in five of their last six games. In contrast, Gent tend to come out all guns blazing; they opened the scoring in most of their recent games. It’s worth noting that Gent drew first blood in four of their last six league games. It’s been the same case with meetings between Mechelen and Gent; as Gent bagged the first goal in nine of their last 10 clashes with Mechelen. All things considered, we believe that Gent will draw first blood.
Both sides to score
Finally, we’ll take a look at the BTTS market. We would like to point out that clashes between Mechelen and Gent have not been one-sided in terms of goals; both teams found the back of the net in four of their last six meetings. Additionally, it’s fair to point out that both teams have scored goals consistently the past couple of months; Mechelen scored in 12 of their last 14 games, while Gent found the net in seven of their last nine games. Considering both teams scored in seven of Mechelen’s last 10 games, both teams will likely score.
