Antwerp vs KV Mechelen prediction
Antwerp continued their good momentum, coming back undefeated away to Gent with a 1:1 result.
They conceded a goal already in the thirteenth minute and many have thought that the catastrophe might be awaiting them, however, the visitors really showed great fighting spirit and passion and managed to deservedly level up in the fourth minute of added time.
The goal from Gano came very late, however, deserved this time since they really actually have created more taken everything into account.
The side now has two victories in a row and this draw, being at the fourth position at the table with just three points more than out of playoff placed Waregem, so a victory remains a priority.
The home side will miss midfielder Defour (4/0) and a couple of really long-term absentees. Midfielder Miyoshi (9/1) is doubtful as well.
KV Mechelen comes from a pretty negative surprise in front of their own fans when the team suffered 0:2 loss against Waregem last time out.
It's the truth that the visitors created more, however, the home side was also unlucky to concede goals within the very last minutes of each halftime.
In between, the game was generally pretty much a balanced one. The side is now just two points above seventh-placed Waregem and would surely benefit from a bit more positive appearance here, after having four consecutive victories away from home.
The guests are set to miss only long-term absentees goalkeeper Valkenaers and defender Lemoine, both without playing so far.
With the way Antwerp plays, their great fighting spirit and confidence they are showing, they are set as favorites completely correctly.
Not only that, it would surprise me if the visitors walk away with more than a couple of goals conceded, although they themselves are also capable of scoring. One way or another, it's Antwerp who should come up victories in a very entertaining clash.
