Eupen vs Gent (By: JrD)
Eupen used to be ''Over 3.5 F.C.'' and all of their games were goals galore. They were playing such attacking minded football that they seeing 5-6 goals scored seemed normal for their matches. That was until French legend Claude Makelele took over and installed very defensive minded tactics. Being one of the best defensive midfielders of his era, his knowledge has showed and Eupen have only conceded 3 goals in his first 5 home games and have completely transformed the way they play.
Gent have not been in good scoring form away from home with only 2 goals in 4 games. They will be without Nigerian trio Simon Moses ( 22 games / 5 goals) Anderson Esiti (20 games ) and Samuel Kalu (22 games 14 starts/ 5 goals) and this will hamper their creativity even further with Moses being an important part of their attack.
In less then ideal weather conditions I think that Eupen will force a tight defensive game and both teams will have problems scoring.
Under 2.5 at 1.73 is a safe bet
