Gent vs St. Liege Prediction & Betting tips
We open the matchday twenty-seven with a very nice game. Ghent may try to erase zero out of six in the own Ghelamco Arena against the strong Standard. The Rouches must gradually become more and more regarded as a title favorite.
AA Gent seemed completely launched after New Year: qualified for the final of the cup, won at home from Anderlecht, three points in Kortrijk and a draw at Club Brugge. But in money time, the Buffalo’s just throw a ticket for play-off 1, with a zero out of six against Mouscron and Waasland-Beveren. Jess Thorup does not hammer for weeks on the mental aspect. The coach also sees that his men are mentally too fragile.
AA Gent nevertheless started well on the Freethiel last weekend. It could have been well ahead of the score after half an hour, but the attackers missed out on opportunities. But then Waasland-Beveren scores a bit from scratch. There were few opportunities, although there were still enough to get a point out of the fire. The quality and the decisions taken on the ball were not good enough.
Thorup put all his focus on Sint-Truiden before the match on the Freethiel, but STVV already runs five points on the Buffalo’s. ‘We still have three matches before we have to go to Sint-Truiden on the final playing day. We must definitely score points on them so that we can control our fate on the last day of play. “Or he would not look at Anderlecht any better? ‘I have no control over what Anderlecht do, Sint-Truiden is also a direct opponent. However difficult it may be, I hope for that last day of play. ‘
Standard has approached eleven points because of their victory and the loss of leader Genk. Four more games and then the lead is halved. For example, we should start calling Standard by the title candidates, even though they are still keeping the pressure in Liège. ‘Gosh, there are still four matches to go’, Maxime Lestienne remained cautious. ‘We have 46 points, we left well. Hopefully we can continue doing this. ‘
Fortunately, Lokeren had a good goalkeeper last weekend, or after a quarter of an hour it already was 3-0. The Lokerse defense was nowhere last night. Marko Marin opened the score in minute sixteen after a fantastic ball from Lestienne. Standard was powerful, dominant, played well between the lines. Lokeren did try in the second half, but lacked efficiency.
The applause change was for Lestienne. A goal and an assist, that was already for him from 2017 and his passage in Russia with Rubin Kazan. At times it were fragments of the old Lestienne that we saw. Flukse dribbels, gears ball at the foot. Hard work pays off. He gave it a piece during the winter internship, to the satisfaction of Michel Preud’homme. ‘The start of the season was difficult. But I feel better now. I knew I would find my old level if I would work. ”
