KAA Gent to Win

Hein Vanhaezebrouck easily overcame the challenge of Valerenga, sending four goals past them without a reply. It was a second straight defeat for the Eliteserein outfit, who have since rebounded with a 0-4 win over Lyn in the Norwegian domestic cup competition. However, it looks unlikely that the hosts will be able to overcome the difference accrued. Their desperation should give Gent ample opportunities to punish them and come out as victors.

Over 2.5 Goals

Four of the last five fixtures involved Gent have seen three or more goals. Valerenga has had a similar return in their last four outings. In this period, Valerenga has scored eight goals, four less than the tally Gent has accumulated. With qualification on the line, this match-up between clubs from neighbouring countries should provide plenty of goalmouth action.

Both Teams to Score: Yes

Dag-Eilev Fagermo’s men were unable to get past Sinan Bolat in the away leg and will surely have enough composure to send one into the back of the net. Given the circumstances involved, it is unlikely that Gent will not be able to add to their aggregate tally despite being on the road. We back both Valerenga and Gent to get on the scoreboard in this all-Scandinavian affair.

Valerenga vs Gent Fixture Preview

Valerenga

Following their one-sided defeat in the first leg, the Bohemians made it difficult for themselves to progress. Greater comebacks have been witnessed in European encounters and Dag-Eilev Fagermo will hope his side delivers one on Thursday night. The Valerenga faithful’s eyes will be on top-scorer Henrik Udahl for inspiration. The 24-year-old all-action forward has scored 5 goals in the transition period for his new club side.

KAA Gent

In their first competitive fixture of the campaign, Hein Vanhaezebrouck’s men gave a performance to behold. They blew Valerenga out of the park with a 4-0 victory and now make the return journey to secure qualification to the next round. However, their 2-1 away defeat to St. Truiden is a cause of concern and Vanhaezebrouck will definitely want improved performance in Norway.
