Anderlecht vs Lokeren Prediction & Betting tips
Cup games across Europe? Not in Belgium! There will be played during the week games of the 13th game day of the national Jupiler League. RSC Anderlecht, who will welcome guests from KSC Lokeren at home in Constant Vanden Stock Stadium, will also be at the start. In the table, these two teams currently separate worlds. If you believe the experts, then the only question that arises in this game is the height of the home victory. The last direct comparisons also speak a correspondingly clear language. In the match between Anderlecht and Lokeren, according to the betting odds, the home team is the clear favorite for a bet on a winner.
RSC Anderlecht have not really gotten started yet. The champions of 2017 come after seven games but seven wins but also two draws and three defeats. That and a goal difference of 24:14 means currently only the fourth rank in the domestic Jupiler League. The gap between the two leaders, FC Bruges and KRC Genk, is already seven points. At the weekend Anderlecht lost at KAS Eupen from the bottom half of the table with 1: 2. In the Europa League, Anderlecht face halfway through the group stage. The away game at Spartak Trnava was lost as well as the home game against Dinamo Zagreb. Only in the last meeting, also at home, against Fenerbahce Istanbul Anderlecht could get his first point in the group stage of the Europa League.
Overall, Anderlecht won only two of their last seven competitive games and one of them was a close 2-1 at Zulte Waregem, which is currently in last place in the Jupiler League. At home there was only a single threesome in the last five games. The problems at Anderlecht are mainly on the defensive. In 16 competitive games this season Anderlecht could only keep the back two at the back. Anderlecht have always conceded at least one goal in the last five games. Anderlecht have conceded two goals in the home stadium three times in a row. For the bookmakers there can be only one winner on Thursday. In the match between Anderlecht and Lokeren, the odds are quite clear in the direction of a tip on home win.
Only one win brought the KSC Lokeren on the first twelve matchdays of the current season in the Belgian Jupiler League. In addition, there were three draws and already eight defeats. That can not mean a good placement in the sum and actually it is so. Currently, Sporting Lokeren is penultimate, tied with taillight Zulte Waregem. None of his last six games in the league Lokeren could win. There were two draws and four losses. Even the interim 5-2 success in the sixteenth finals of the Belgian Cup at the amateurs of OC Charleroi could initiate the league operation no turnaround. Lokeren is particularly weak. Lokeren have lost five of their six league matches on opponent’s field and only scored one point. At home, meanwhile, there were five of the previous six points.
Interesting: Lokeren scored only two goals in six games at home and scored ten on the other. Away there were only marginally more with twelve goals, but Lokeren was able to achieve seven goals in foreign countries – and still enough on the opponent’s place only for this one counter. All five away defeats conceded Lokeren with only one goal difference. Most recently Lokeren lost away from home four times in a row with 1: 2. Lokeren was able to score in each of the seven competitive matches this season. Lokeren has been able to score at least one goal in his last 17 competitive games on the opponent’s square, in a match that has not affected the season and competition. In the match on Thursday from Lokeren in Anderlecht brings a tip on away win betting odds in the double-digit range.
