Our prediction for this Belgium Pro League match:
Gent play host to Westerlo at their Ghelamco Arena in the Jupiler League round 3. Gent dropped two points in a 1-1 draw with St. Truiden, and, no doubt, they are desperate to record their first win of the process. Darko Lemajic is likely to replace Tarik Tissoudali in the starting XI as the Morocco international limped off with injury at the weekend, while midfielder Julien de Sart will be assessed ahead of the kick-off.
Westerlo, on the other hand, continue with their old habit of producing much better showings at home than on the travels. When the two teams met in a friendly earlier in 2022 Westerlo crushed Gent 6-2, which is yet another reason why home win should be considered. To make things even worse for the visiting side, important defender Pietro Perdichizzi misses out through suspension after he was sent off in the 2-0 loss to Leuven.
