Gent – Anderlecht

Gent hosts Anderlecht in a match from the 5th round of the Belgian First Division A. Let us offer you our soccer predictions for this game.


Gent are currently 15th in the league standings. There’s just one team which is under them in the table – Oostende. They are playing very poorly since the start of the new season, having won just one point from four games. This happened during the 1-1 draw against Mechelen. In the other three matches Gent suffered defeats.


Anderlecht are also not enjoying their dream start of the new campaign. They are currently 10th with just 4 points won out of 12. They have only one win so far – against Oostende. Anderlecht are currently in a run of two consecutive losses, which is not great for them at any way. They have lost their matches against Charleroi and Sint-Truiden and it’s really surprising what’s happening with them.


Even more surprising is Gent’s terrible performance so far. Last season Gent finished the regular season at 4th place and now they have won just one point after four games. Is this leading us to a quick change of the manager? Maybe if things continue like this, Gent will have a new head coach very soon, who knows.


As for Anderlecht, they will need to find a way to stop this slow start and get back on track. They are arguably the best team in the country, so the way how they started the new campaign was unexpected.


This is an interesting game, because both teams need to win the game because of their current situation. For Gent it would a first win for the season and for Anderlecht it would mean an end to a very bad run of results. These were our soccer predictions for this game, good luck!
