Anderlecht was able to stop the free fall at the start of the season in recent weeks. For four game rounds, the Brussels lost no longer, which is why the former record champions at least in midfield of the Jupiler League has set.
Anderlecht vs Gent Free Betting Predictions and Odds
For the claims of the RSC, of course, still too little, but even the most diehard fans have now understood that this season is no more than a transitional period. The team is very young and still weakened by numerous injuries. With Gent, a formidable team arrives again.
The Flemings are in fourth place in the table and are captivating with a great offensive. Only Liege and the table leader from Bruges and Antwerp met more frequently so far. However, one notices the team slowly the double burden of the national league operation and the group stage in the Europa League.
Most recently, the team of Danish coach Jess Thorup was a bit tired at the guest appearance in St. Truiden. Only a goalless draw was recorded in the match. It was only the second league game that came to an end without a goal. However, in the match between Anderlecht and Gent, the tip is that both opponents will score.
Anderlecht – Statistics & Current Form
Anderlecht’s kickers, like their opponents, had to settle for a 0: 0 in Eupen. The result was a setback after two previous wins against Charleroi and St. Truiden dar. The offensive weakness from the start of the season came back at this meeting.
One reason is certainly the loss of new signing by Nacer Chadli. The 30-year-old came from AS Monaco just a few weeks ago and has taken an immediate hit: five goals in eight league appearances make him the most dangerous player in the ranks of Anderlecht.
Currently, the Belgian international is out of action due to an injury and a return to the squad against Gent is uncertain. This applies to other important players like the two defenders Vincent Kompany and Philippe Sandler. In addition, the best scorer of the previous year in the guise of Nany Landry Dimata will continue to be unable to contribute.
The personnel situation remains tense. Nevertheless, in Anderlecht has recently made more hope. With Franky Vercauteren was a legend of Belgian football committed earlier this month, which has ended the previously obscure coaching an end.
Here, Vincent Kompany and the Welshman Simon Davies shared more poorly than quite this task. The recent upswing is undoubtedly linked to the installation of Vercauteren.
The 63-year-old was born around the corner in the neighboring district of Molenbeek and spent as a player in the 1970s and 1980s as a player a successful time in Anderlecht, when he won the club four times, the championship and twice the European Cup Winners’ Cup.
Even as a coach, Vercauteren was already employed at the RSC just over ten years ago. Again this time was associated with clearing away “Silverware” – twice the Belgian title was fetched. That the coach still understands his craft well, can be seen at his previous station in the Flemish Lion.
There, Vercauteren left the club as a table first in the second-rate Proximus League.

Gent – Statistics & Current Form
In Gent, the tristesse of last season is not much to see. After the past season ended only laboriously with the fifth rank and the champion of 2015 lost the cup final against the then second-rate player KV Mechelen, the team is now noticeably better off.
The three-time cup winner of the country, however, has two faces in the Jupiler League: While he sets with six wins in as many games in front of his own backdrop, the strongest home team in the Jupiler League, Gent gets on well in foreign countries less well.
In addition to Waasland-Beveren and Cercle Brugge, the weakest clubs this season, who rank at the bottom of the table, Gent is still without a win away.
Coach Jess Thorup, who has been in office since last year and previously won the title with FC Midtjylland in the Danish Super League, will now focus on his offensive to finally improve on this amazingly negative record.
“If we play this match again, we would win it.” – KAA keeper Thomas Kaminski after the recent draw against St. Truiden
With the triumvirate of the Canadian Jonathan David, Ukrainian Roman Yemchuk and Belgian Laurent Depoitre, he has several very dangerous players. Read on that the trio scored no fewer than 16 goals in the first eleven rounds. However, the experienced Sven Kums will not play in midfield.
The 31-year-old is currently on loan from his opponent, and as a result, Kums will not be used in the upcoming Gent side match as the player continues to receive part of his salary from Brussels.
In view of the blatant away weakness Anderlecht against Gent, the odds of double chance for the home side on top worth considering.
