Antwerp win

Antwerp have had a solid run over the last few weeks with the surprise home defeat against Standard Liege the only defeat for the team in the last five league games. Oostende have been quite poor and they do not have great match fitness after having not been in action for almost a month. Oostende have lost three out of the last four league matches. Even though the last two league meetings between these two clubs at the Diaz Arena has been a draw, Antwerp should be able to pick up their first victory on this ground since February 2019.

Total goals under 2.5

Antwerp might be close to the top of the First Division A table but they have only been mediocre in away matches. They have averaged around 1.5 goals per game on the road. The last three games between these two clubs at the Diaz Arena has been with less than 2.5 goals, which is a strong candidate for this game.

Both teams to score – no

Oostende have four defeats in the last five games at home and they have also not been scoring a lot of goals. In the recent six matches, Oostende have only managed four league goals. Antwerp may be quite mediocre at the back, they should be able to manage clean sheets nonetheless.
