KAA Gent will be hoping to return to winning ways here after a 1-0 Conference League losing effort in their last game against Qarabağ. Leandro Andrade (78′) was the scorer for Qarabağ. Fixtures featuring KAA Gent have proved to be absorbing affairs lately with a lot of goalmouth action being a real hallmark.
Over their past half dozen games alone, the sum of 20 goals have been scored for both teams combined (at an average of 3.33 goals per game) with 10 of those accredited to KAA Gent. In their previous game, Oud-Heverlee Leuven drew 0-0 in the First Division A tie with Cercle Brugge.
In that game, Oud-Heverlee Leuven had 56% possession and 7 attempts at goal with 1 on target. Cercle Brugge got 11 shots at goal with 5 of them on target. The numbers tell their own story, and Oud-Heverlee Leuven have been scored against in 5 of their last 6 matches, letting opponents get 6 goals in all. Defensively, Oud-Heverlee Leuven could really do with shoring things up. Such a pattern isn’t assured to be sustained into this next game, though.
Heading into this fixture, Oud-Heverlee Leuven are without an away win for the past 2 league games.
It looks to us that KAA Gent should dominate possession and create several successful chances.
At the other end, Oud-Heverlee Leuven will be up against it getting goals but we do think it’s quite likely that they will be scoring as well.
Our selection here is for a fairly comfortable 3-1 winning margin for KAA Gent come full-time.
