Our prediction for this Belgium Pro League match:
Eupen will be looking to put an end to their three-game losing run in the Jupiler League when they take on Gent at Kehrwegstadion. The Pandas experienced all sorts of problems at the back in a 4-0 loss to Club Brugge, with the team extending their goalless run to three games and it is no wonder the bookies see Gent as favourites to win Sunday’s clash. Gary Magnee limped off with injury in the last league match, with Amadou Keita likely to step up.
Gent are on a three-game losing run in the Belgian top flight as well, but they will not have a better chance than this to get back on course. All Sven Kums, Jordan Torunarigha, Nurio Fortuna, and Paul Nardi miss out with injuries, while Andrew Hjulsager faces race against clock to be fit for the match. You should know that Gent are eyeing their sixth consecutive win over Eupen in the Jupiler League.
Highlighted Team (Gent):
Gent are a Belgian football club that plays their home games at Ghelamco Arena. The venue has been the club’s home ground since 2013 and the capacity of the stadium is 20 000. De Buffalo’s participate in the Belgian Pro League and they clinched their first domestic trophy in the 2014/2015 season.
Gent finished the regular part of the season in second place in the standings, but they eventually climbed to the top position in the table in the play-off. The club won their third Belgian Cup trophy in 2010 and it has to be noted that they defeated Club Brugge in the Belgian Super Cup in 2015. Laurent Depoitre scored the winner for Gent three minutes before the final whistle.
A number of top-class players were part of the team in the past and the likes of Victor Fernandez, Johan Boskamp, Bob Peeters, Trond Sollied and Michel Preud’homme are some of notable footballers who played for Gent in the past.
