Our prediction for this Belgium Pro League match:
Oostende play host to Beerschot at their Versluys Arena in the opening match of the 2020/21 Jupiler League season. Oostende were more than fortunate not to suffer relegation last season as they were only two points clear of rock-bottom Waasland-Beveren before the cancelation. De Kustoboys are eager to make a flying start to the season, but the game against Beerschot will be anything but a walk in the park for the hosts.
The newcomers, on the other hand, are high on confidence as they rolled over Leuven 5-1 on aggregate in the promotion playoffs final. Die Mannekes have big ambitions on their return to the Belgian elite division, and seeing that Monday’s clash will be played behind closed doors, we believe that there is a big value in betting on the visiting team. In their last meeting in the Belgian elite division Oostende defeated Beerschot 2-1, meaning that the visitors are hungry for revenge.
