OVER/UNDER 2.5 GOALS KEY STATISTICS:

In their last 20 home matches, Anderlecht have scored 1.9 goals per game and conceded 1.2 goals per game on average. The last 20 Anderlecht home matches have produced an average of 3.15 goals per game. In their last 20 away matches, Eupen have scored 0.8 goals per game and conceded 1.9 goals per game on average. The last 20 Eupen away matches have produced an average of 2.70 goals per game.

The team from Brussels has had a good start to the league season. They are 5th at the moment after 22 matches have been completed. A healthy 37 goals have been scored by their talented front line, but 28 of them were conceded as well.

Three of their 5 previous matches in the Jupiler League were defeats with the only win coming against Waasland-Beveren. Recent home form has also been a problem for the side managed by Fred Rutten. At this rate, a 3rd place finish as last season looks well out of reach for Fred’s team. Less than 2.5 goals came in the vast majority of their home games in the recent past.

The Pandas are well behind in the title race but had an average season so far. They are mid-table after losing 12 of their 22 league games so far. The defense has been their problem with 39 goals conceded till now.

In the last 5 competitive games, they have 3 wins and 2 defeats. Less than 2.5 goals were scored in 4 of those 5 matches in both Cup and league. With 2 wins and the same number of losses in their last 4 matches on the road, away from is not perfect either.

Since the hosts are struggling a bit at this time, Eupen can get something positive out of this match if they play well.

Anderlecht vs Eupen: Prediction

Anderlecht have been in unstable form recently and they lost 5 out of the last 7 league games. On the other hand, AS Eupen grabbed back-to-back wins of late. So Anderlecht should not earn our favour.

My Prediction:  Bet Eupen AH (+1)   Best odds  2.06
