Anderlecht take on the visitors Antwerp in the round 4 match of Championship Group of Belgian Jupiler Pro League. The match will be played on Thursday, May 12th at Lotto Park (Anderlecht).
The Purple and Whites are considered one of the giants of Belgian football. They have 34 championship titles alone... Only the last one is dated back to 2017. Recently, not everything has been successful, and, for example, the last draw brought 3rd place. Now it is obvious that Vincent Kompany could not improve with his charges. Not only the champion of recent years, Brugge, but also the sensational Union came off very far. So all that remains is to fight to win at least Antwerp the dispute for the “bronze” with minimal chances - the grand is frankly bad in confrontation with the strongest, they have no victories for 4 fights in a row.

Antwerp relatively recently hung out in the 2nd division of the country. Only in 2017, after a 13-year absence, did they return to the Jupiler League. A few years later, it turned out to take the national cup. And in the last draw, for example, only Brugge finished higher. True, in the additional round, in the "champion's" pool, Genk also pressed them. And in the autumn of the Europa League, the Belgians were only the last in the group with Olympiakos, Fenerbahce and Eintracht. On the other hand, in the championship, Brian Priske's wards managed to stay at about the same level as before. But they still need to overtake Anderlecht in this dispute for the "bronze" - it is obvious that the pair of leaders of the quartet is much stronger. On Sunday, the clubs played on the Antwerp field, and the visitors were simply destroyed with a score of 4-0.
Before the meetings in the “championship pool”, within the framework of the regular season of this Jupiler-League, the sides exchanged home victories - Antwerp won 2-0, but then lost 1-2 in Brussels to Anderlecht. Perhaps Antwerp will not be able to repeat the outcome of the previous match, but Anderlecht is clearly in crisis. A solid option looks like a bet on visitors with a handicap.
Prediction for the match: Antwerp to win with +1.0 handicap.
