Anderlecht vs Mechelen by Duyce
Hosts from Anderlecht are having a good season with a lot of important wins against solid opponents. Their only loss is against the big surprise of this year - Oostende. At the home stadium they lost points only to strong opponents - Gent and Genk (2 draws ). They also managed to score 13 goals and conceded only 7. Against weaker opponents (as Mechelen surely is) they score 2-3 goals per match - regardless if home or away. In this match they wont miss any of key players (or any players at all).
Visitors for this match - Mechelen are in completely different situation. They sit on a 16th place (only in front of Liege and Westerlo). Mainly physical preparedness of the team seems lacking. They have solid 1st halves but cant manage to hold the tempo for entire match. In almost every match they conceded a goal or two in a 2nd half. On the other hand, they also scored some goals in 2nd halves of their matches. Their top scorer - Verdier is questionable for this game but Naessens will surely miss this match (key player).
I expect :
Cautious 1st half (especially from Mechelen)
Offensive attitude from Anderlecht in 2nd half.
More attacking approach from Mechelen after first Anderlecht goal.
The fact, that Mechelen conceded 14 of 18 goals in 2nd halves confirms what I wrote above. Moreover, Anderlecht have better 2nd halves that 1st halves. If the halftime score will be 0-0, 1-0 or 0-1, this is sure bet with nice odds. Good luck.
