Our Best Picks and Betting Tips for Gent vs Leuven

Leuven to Win

In this duel, the home team is favourite in most predictions, the last time these two teams met the league had just started. The teams had similar statistics and the final result was a one-goal draw.

The Buffalos have won most of their home games, so we expect them to outplay their opponents in their next match and take all 3 points.

Over 2.5 Goals

The last 2 times The Buffalos played at home against OHL, there were 5 goals in each of those two matchups. For our next Gent vs Leuven prediction we will say that there will be 3 or even more goals in this match. 4 of the home team’s last 5 matches ended with more than 2.5 goals.

BTTS

One of the reasons why both teams have not won in the last few rounds is that they have conceded a lot of goals. In 8 of Leuven’s last 6 matches, we saw BTTS. The home team has four clean sheets while the away team has 18 consecutive games conceding goals to The Buffaloes. Taking into account the Gent vs Leuven line ups, we deduce that both teams will bury the ball in the net.

Gent vs Leuven Preview: Decisive Matchup

Gent

The Buffalos were just a point away from Westerlo, a result that left them three points off the fourth place that gives direct access to the championship round. A goal from Hugo Cuypers and a brace from Gift Emmanuel Orban saw Hein van Haezebrouck’s side avoid defeat against Westerlo, who also scored three goals. 

Afterward, Gent played the first leg of their Conference League match against Qarabag. Unfortunately, they lost 1-0, but they will be able to reverse the result in the second leg in Gent.

Leuven

It has now been five consecutive matches without a win for the team led by Mar Gris. In a short period, they have gone from being in the qualification places for the next phase to the middle of the table.

The previous day OHL played at home against Cercle Brugge, one of their direct rivals. Leuven decided to retreat in their half of the pitch, but still, Cercle Brugge had several chances to score. Due to Valentin Cojocaru’s saves, the match ended in a goalless draw.
