Our prediction for this Belgium Pro League match:
Mechelen play host to Leuven at their AFAS-stadion Achter de Kazerne in what is expected to be a very exciting Jupiler League game. Mechelen aim to put an end to their three-game winless run in the Belgian elite division, and seeing that a win over Leuven could see them regain their spot in top eight, we are positive that the hosts will leave their hearts on the field.
Mechelen did well to hold Anderlecht to a 1-1 draw win their last league game, and they are surely capable of matching Leuven on home soil. The good news for the hosts is that Jordi Vanlerberghe returns from suspension. Leuven, on the other hand, looked sharp in front of goal in a 3-3 draw with Eupen, and, taking everything into account, we believe that there is a big value in betting on both teams to score.
