Mechelen vs Anderlecht by Meese

Mechelen is far away from a positive start for now, but the side managed to improve things just before the international break firstly with their first victory in the season against St Truiden at home, but then also with a solid performance on the road against Mouscron and a point taken in a 2:2 draw.

Their opponents have entered the match much more seriously and attacking, getting the double lead after twenty-six minutes, thanks to goals from Olinga and Awoniyi, however players of Mouscron reacted in a great manner and already deserved to score in the first halftime. Even better performance was seen from then in the season halftime, as the side really deserved to get the victory even missing the penalty kick, but managed to take the point at least with two goals inside last fifteen minutes (via Schoofs and Cobbaut).

Offensive midfielder Dimitrios Kolovos (no performance) remains long term absentee, same as defender Jules Van Cleemput who also didn't perform so far.

Anderlecht, on the other side, comes into this match after a three pointer taken in front of own fans narrowly with a 1:0 result against Standard Liege two weekends ago. They were better, no question about that, especially in the second halftime when they upped the tempo, but struggled to find a goal till very late in the match.

Still deservedly they sealed the three pointer via Onyekuru in 89th minute, as the side remains to be onl in the middle of the table for now with four victories, three draws and two defeats. They are already nine points behind leaders from Club Brugge and there's no more time for them to wait - the team simply must go from game to game and seek for a three pointers in each of them.

Central defender Uros Spajic (8/1) and right back Andy Najar (1/0) are both sidelined with injuries.

Mechlen got a point only away to Mouscron, but the side played much better and we can now speak about something as momentum switch in their club. They will be awaiting one of the strongest teams in the country and even though Anderlecht remains the favorite, I expect them to have quite a job here with the hosts who enter the match with improved morale. Visitors are far away from a reliable side, especially in the defense and away from home.

    I would dare go here with BTTS-YES,nothing more and not for big stake.
    Last 5 games all finished BTTS-YES in Mechelen and I have feeling this will happen again.

    Anderlecht should win this, much more quality in team, Mechelen isnt an easy place to take 3 points, but Anderlecht is already some points behind on Brugge, the new trainer Vanhaezebrouck is by far the best trainer in Belgium, I think he will come in with a victory for Anderlecht, with Kums and Sels he also has some players available he knows from Gents former champions team 2014-2015, gl
