Our Best Picks and Betting Tips for Westerlo vs Gent

Gent to Win

The two clubs last met on matchday 3. On that occasion, Westerlo took advantage of a Gent defensive error after five minutes to open the scoring.

From then on, the Buffalos had to increase their intensity as their opponents were pinned back in their own half. Gent improved their performance and turned the score around, we think that this time they will be the first to take advantage to win again.

Over 2.5 Goals

In the last 3 matchdays, the visiting team scored a total of 7 goals and also conceded 6. The scorer of the team Hugo Cuypers accumulated 13 goals and is the third in the scoring table of the tournament. In the last 5 matchdays, he scored 4 goals and provided one assist.

4 of the last 5 direct confrontations ended with more than 2.5 goals. In fact 5 of The Buffalos’ last 6 games in the Pro League also had more than 3.5 goals. Based on these numbers, we predict 3 or even more goals.

BTTS

Westerlo has improved their performance in the last few games, but their main problem is still in defence, as they concede goals in almost every game. However, they have also scored first in 4 of their last 5 matches. That’s why our final prediction is that we will see both teams score.

Westerlo vs Gent Preview: Fighting For An Important Spot

Westerlo

In the next two matchdays, the team coached by Jonas De Roeck will face two direct rivals. The outcome of both matchups will have a big impact on the Championship Round and playoff qualification.

Westerlo drew against Eupen in the previous matchday for the third consecutive match without defeat. Nene Dorgeles opened the scoring in the 44th minute, but his team could not hold on to the lead and Eupen equalised in the 66th minute. De Roeck’s team has just 5 out of the last 9 points but still made up some positions.

Gent

Coach Hein van Haezebrouck is not satisfied with the recent results, as after two consecutive losses they have lost their place in the top 4. If this series of bad results continues, the team could even drop out of the playoffs.

Previously they faced the table leader, in one of the most exciting matches of matchday 24. Hyunseok Hong opened the scoring in the 9th minute but Genk equalised immediately and then scored two more. In the 88th minute, Laurent Depoitre scored The Buffalos’ second, but it was not enough.
