Gent vs Oostende Prediction & Betting tips
Friday evening is the first flash signal of the fourth playday at Play-Off 1. At the Ghelamco Arena as a decor, AA Gent can take it against KV Oostende. Can AA Gent again keep the three points at home?
The goal that the Ghent administration had foreseen for this year was to achieve European football or to win the top three in terms of the big loss after leaving strongholds Sven Kums and Laurent Depoitre. It was only possible to get Play-Off 1 by launching the confrontation with KV Mechelen on the last day of play for the final spot at the top six.
That way, Play-Off 1 started as a nice companion, but nothing more. Now, after three days of play, Ghent is second in place next to Club Brugge. Thanks to a strong seven to nine against Club Brugge, Anderlecht and Charleroi. Very strong results considering the whole season. Last weekend, it was finally possible to make an end to their black beast Charleroi thanks to a goal through Yaya Kubo. Earlier a flint of goalkeeper Benneteau, but coach Hein Vanhaezebroeck does not attend: “I am very pleased with our mature game and the way we defended. My defenders have shown what they can. The individual mistakes are out, which means we can count on a solid defense. That’s important in Play-Off 1. ”
“Attack wins games, but defense championships”. Can Ghent name his title candidate? Yes. If they take the three points, there will be a lot of pressure on the Anderlecht – Club Brugge game and, if no Anderlecht win, the title fight is fully open again. The Ghent defense is ready and the tune of luck is now on their side. Just in time for a comeback?
Probable setup Gent
Kalinic; Gershon, Mitrovic, Gigot; Asare, Esiti, Kubo, Milicevic, Kalu; Simon, Coulibaly
Marc Coucke’s KV Ostend has a great season, but the cherry on the cake is not there yet. It even seems that after losing the cup finale now, there is also little chance of a European ticket. Oostende is currently in the last place on five points from place three. A battle between the three other teams for fourth place.
Despite the well-delivered game, KVO could only get two points from the first three games played. With two home games this is a bad report for the coaches of coach Yves Vanderhaeghe. Last match became one of “who scores wins the match”. A very close party between KVO and Anderlecht was decided by a classical version of Sofiane Hanni. That while KVO got a penalty just before rest, unjustified or not, fluttered was blown, but Landry Dimata could not redeem it. The reactions to the players indicated that there was disappointment within the group, but they still ace on that well-deserved European ticket. A victory against the Buffalo could be very useful. But is KV Oostende capable of doing that?
Probable setup Oostende
Proto; Capon, Milic, Rozehnal, Vandendriessche; Marusic, Siani, Berrier; El Ghanassy, Dimata, Canesin
