Our prediction for this Belgium Pro League match:
Diaz Arena will host Saturday’s Jupiler League game between Oostende and Mechelen, the two teams who were beaten by Anderlecht and Mechelen respectively at the weekend. To make things even worse for the hosts, midfielder Fanos Katelaris was sent off in the season opener, and, as a result, he will serve his one-game ban against Mechelen. Maxime D’Arpino remains in the treatment room, while Saturday’s clash comes too early for fellow midfielder Cameron McGeehan, who is back in training.
Mechelen had no more than two shots on target in the 2-0 loss to Antwerp, which is probably the main reason why we are going to put our money on the hosts this time out. There are no fresh selection worries in the away side ahead of the trip to Oostende. In their last meeting in the Jupiler League Mechelen outplayed Oostende 3-0, meaning that the hosts are hungry for revenge.
