Our prediction for this Belgium Pro League match:
Gent will be aiming to bounce back from a 1-0 loss to Antwerp when they host Mechelen at their Ghelamco Arena. Gent are eyeing their first win of the season, and they will not have a better chance than this to get back on course. Laszlo Boloni’s troops failed to turn their dominance into goals at the weekend, and given their display in the second half of the match against Antwerp, home win should be considered this time out.
Experienced midfielder Nana Asare could play some part against Mechelen after missing the last league match due to coach’s decision. The visitors, on the other hand, experienced all sorts of problems at the back in a 3-2 loss to Cercle Brugge, which is yet another reason why we are tempted to put our money on the hosts. Mechelen attacker Gustav Engvall is likely to miss Sunday’s football match through injury.
