Our prediction for this Belgium Pro League match:
Gent will be aiming to bounce back from a 2-1 loss to St. Truiden when they face Kortrijk in their first home game of the season. Gent’s display in the season opener was better than the result, and it should come as no surprise they are seen as favourites to win Saturday’s football match. Even though Germany international Tim Kleindienst is likely to miss the Kortijk game with injury, home win should be considered. De Kerels, on the other hand, experienced all sorts of problems at the back in a w3-1 loss to Waasland-Beveren.
Midfielder Jovan Stojanovic is out of contention with injury for Kortrijk, and given Gent’s home record in the Belgian top flight, we predict that the visitors are going to return home empty-handed. You should bear in mind that Gent are eyeing their sixth consecutive win over Kortrijk in the national championship.
