St. Truiden vs Gent Prediction & Betting tips
On the final match day we have a very exciting game. Sint-Truiden and Ghent both have the same number of points and mutually decide who can go to play-off 1. Who can prevail?
Sint-Truiden no longer needs arithmetic. After last weekend it is clear that the Canaries just have to win to get play-off 1. And that is the best for this group. Marc Brys had a week to boost his team for the decisive duel with AA Ghent. Sunday it will be war, mind you: in the good sense of the word. On top or below. That’s how we like it.
Sint-Truiden was stuck with a team in form Mouscron last weekend on a draw. STVV could have killed the match during the first hitch but it spilled with chances and ran into a good goalkeeper. They had twelve chances, five of them face to face with the keeper. You have to do more with that if you want to win. They took the lead and were allowed to play against ten men. Even with eleven against nine, in the last ten minutes it was no longer ready.
“Then you have to finish it by combining as you were busy, but there was too much rush with only impure passes,” said Brys. After which he first gave himself and then his group an injection full of confidence: “Yet I have seen the STVV of the first round again, with a lot of commitment. The results had blinded us a bit, but now I see several boys achieving their level back then. ”
With a nine out of nine AA Gent has its final on the last day of the regular competition. The Buffalos at Stayen are satisfied with a draw for a play-off 1 ticket. There is great belief in a good outcome. AA Gent may even start that important race as number six in the rankings, with as many points as Sint-Truiden, but two victories more than the Limburgers.
AA Gent started against Ostend as befits a team that has to win, with a lot of urge for an early goal. Despite the fact that Ghent then slowed the pace, chances followed. The Buffalos left that and were given the equalizer shortly before the break. AA Gent should have decided the match much faster. There were no fewer than sixteen attempts on goal, most of which resulted from decent goal opportunities. There was too much nervousness in the Ghent game, both in the passing and in the finishing.
According to Jesse Thorup, STVV is certainly no better in mental terms than Ghent. “Both teams face a tough task,” says the Ghent coach. “For fans, neutral football fans, journalists and analysts, it will only be about our match all week. The sporting commitment, the financial consequences, everything will be discussed. But it is my job and that of my players to ensure that we reach the level of the last three wins. The only thing that matters is that we play our game, not what the consequences will be. Because if you start thinking too much, you can’t play football anymore. ”
