The visitors have just suffered a pity home loss to Mouscron, and their present form suggests that they are not ready to play equal against the toppers.
The homeside play defense first. Under the new manager Adnan Custovic, they regularly play in 3-4-3 and are very active. The Bosnian specialist has changed the playing style, and his team are no more relegation-threatened. That said, in the last two rounds, they lost in the end of the match which suggests their physical struggles, but, given the opponents’ level, they looked rather decent. Waasland-Beveren may present a solid opposition to Gent who have faced some squad losses – Esiti and Rosted will not play tomorrow. Gent are exhausted by their latest calendar, but they won the Belgian Cup. Anyways, the home 1:2 defeat to Mouscron corroborates that there is no solid rotation in Gent and that they cannot be consistent for a long time. There is not much point in pursuing the Champions League place while the team practically hold the Europa League one – the gap is rather serious, and the loss to Mouscron increased it; though, almost all toppers but for the first-place holders themselves conceded in the last round. Gent will anyhow have troubles in their trip, and our bet is against them.
Prediction for the match: Waasland-Beveren to win with a +1.0 handicap.
