Anderlecht hosts Gent in round 5 of the Belgian Jupiler Pro League. The match will be played on Thursday, September 23rd at Lotto Park (Anderlecht)
Anderlecht hinted at their revival in the previous season. It didn’t come close to fighting for the title in the Jupiler League but still moved up to the 4th final place. However, the results of Vincent Kompany’s charges in the debut Conference League were not successful. They eliminated Laci, but Vitesse from the neighboring Netherlands didn’t allow them to get in the group stage of the new UEFA tournament (3-3 in Brussels and 2-1 in Arnhem). Not everything is good in the Belgian Jupiler Pro League, where Anderlecht either wins confidently (7-2 against Mechelen) or manages to lose not only to Genk but also to Royal Union Saint-Gilloise. On the other hand, the last two games ended with victories over Mechelen (7-2!) and Standard Liege (0-1).

Gent showed a rather mediocre game in the previous draw and scored only 49 points in 34 matches in the “regular season”, outranking Beerschot, who finished 9th and went on vacation early, by only two points. But Yaremchuk and the company were able to show themselves well in the decisive part of the season. Having won the group, they got a ticket to the Conference League. There the Buffalos had to start in the qualification, but they confidently knocked out Valerenga, RFS, and Rakuv. And on September 16, in the 1st round of the group round, Gent managed to beat Flora away due to a goal from Lemajic after a pass from Bezus. Despite successes in European competitions, Gent does not succeed in everything in the Jupiler League. The start was completely failed: only one point scored in the first three rounds. But then they beat Mechelen (2-0) and even destroyed Club Brugge KV (6-1). However, September began with an offensive 2-3 defeat to Charleroi, with a decisive goal in the 95th minute. And having quickly conceded from Kortrijk in the last away match, Gent did not answer with anything.
As a rule, in this pair, the hosts of the arena do not lose. And now an interesting streak lasts: the clubs shared points four times in a row. Both teams can misfire at any time now. So, we'd better dwell on the option with Over 2.5 goals scored.
Prediction for the match: Over 2.5 goals scored
