Our prediction for this Belgium Pro League match:
Antwerp will be aiming to build on a 3-1 win over Kortrijk when they take on Mechelen at their Bosuilstadion on Friday evening. Antwerp have been climbing the standings week by week, and they seem to be on top of their game ahead of the visit of Mechelen. A man to keep an eye on in the home team will be veteran Dieumerci Mbokani, who scored his second goal of the season at the weekend.
De Kakkers, on the other hand, quickly bounced back from a 3-1 loss to Genk, with the team beating St. Truiden 2-0 in their last league match. Mechelen are a real force to be reckoned with at home, but seeing that they often struggle on the travels, we are tempted to put our money on the in-form hosts. In their last meeting in Jupiler League Antwerp defeated Mechelen 1-0.
