Our prediction for this Belgium Pro League match:
Buoyed by a hard-fought 1-0 win over Club Brugge in the Belgian Cup final, Antwerp will be looking to kick off the new Jupiler League campaign in style when they welcome Mouscron at Bosuilstadion. Seeing that the city of Antwerp is on some sort of a lockdown, the game will be played behind closed doors, but the Belgian Cup winners are still seen as hot favourites to win the match. Mouscron, who finished the last campaign in tenth position, are eyeing a top-table finish this time out.
Considering that “Les Hurlus” are not regarded as good travellers, we are tempted to put our money on the home side. In their last meeting in the Belgian top flight Mouscron defeated Antwerp 3-1, meaning that the hosts are hungry for revenge. Lior Refaelov scored the winner in the Belgian Cup final, meaning that the opposition defenders should have him at bay.
