Note: The odds for this fixture are subject to change on Betfred. Please confirm with the bookmaker for updated prices before placing your bet.

Both teams will score

This fixture pits two good teams against each other and we think both sides have a chance of scoring in this match. Home advantage for KAA Gent and a good run in the last ten games during which they lost only twice and failed to score in only one game is why a goal or two for Gent looks good on the books. On the flipside, Valerenga has equally had a good run in their last ten games, scoring in all of them even though they lost two matches within that duration. The visitors average 1.9 goals in the last ten games while Gent averages 1.8 goals in the same number of games.

Under 2.5 goals at full-time

While we expect goals on both sides, this fixture will not be easy for either side. Both teams are at par in goal scoring record and should face a tough qualifying fixture in round two of Europa Conference League qualifiers. We think these teams will cancel out each other to share the spoils at full-time.

Draw at full-time

Our third prediction is anchored on the second. A tense encounter between Gent and Valeranga, two teams that have a similar run of form and goal-scoring record, should end in a draw at full-time.

Game Preview: KAA Gent Faces a Tough Challenge in Europa Conference League Qualifying, Second Round

KAA Gent faces Valerenga in the second round of Europa Conference League qualifiers. This is expected to be a difficult game for both sides. Our match preview has more details.

KAA Gent

An average of 1.8 goals in the last ten games and only one victory in the last four games puts Gent in an awkward position as they prepare to host Norway’s Valeranga. For that, we expect this fixture to be more about play style than how both sides have performed in recent games. Moreover, eyes will be on KAA Gent head coach, Hein Van Haezebrouck. Hein Van Haezebrouck prefers the 3-4-3 formation and averages 1.73 points after 30 matches.

Valerenga

Valeranga’s goal haul in the last ten games is almost at par with Gent’s goal scoring record in the same number of matches. The visitors have a similar record to Gent in the last four games of 1W, 2D and 1L. Even more interesting is the fact that the visiting coach has the same points per match as that of Gent’s Hein Van Haezebrouck. Dag-Eilev Fagermo has been in charge of Valerenga IF since January 2020 and averages 1.73 points after 44 games at the helm.
