Our prediction for this Belgium Pro League match:
Oostende will be aiming to make amends for back-to-back defeats to Waasland-Beveren and Kortrijk when they take on Gent at Diaz Arena on Sunday evening. Oostende made a promising start to the season, but, all of a sudden, they suffered a dip in form. The hosts failed to win the previous five league fixtures, but they are surely capable of matching the out-of-sorts visitors. Gent have been struggling in both Jupiler League and Europa League this season.
De Buffalo’s failed to impress in a 3-0 loss to Waregem, and seeing that Oostende are eager to put an end to their five-game winless run in the national championship, we are tempted to put our money on the home side. In their last encounter at Diaz Arena Oostende recorded a hard-fought 2-1 win over Gent. Both Plastun and Kleindienst have recovered from coronavirus, while De Bruyn and Chakvetadze remain in the recovery room for the visitors. Boonen and D’Haese are likely to miss the game with injury for the hosts.
