Mechelen to Win

In their four preseason fixtures at home, Mechelen had a tough time against their rivals and only once had a lap of honours. On the other hand, Antwerp did not travel for any of their preparatory tests but was impressed in draws against AS Monaco, FC Utrecht and Nordsjaelland. Without much to differentiate both sides, we have to favour the hosts, who have won four of the five H2H duels at the AFAS-stadion Achter de Kazerne.

Total Goals: Over 2.5

Antwerp curbed their enthusiasm in their club friendlies. Only twice in five outings did the scoreline showed Over 2.5 goals. Mechelen did not hide their attacking instincts, scoring sixteen goals in six outings. However, they also conceded 15 goals in the process. With the backlines still forming their shapes and the attacking units roaring to go, to expect three or more goals in this fixture will be an understatement.

Both Teams to Score: Yes

Only twice did Antwerp managed to keep a clean sheet in their preseason outings. Mechelen did not even hide their disdain for low-scoring affairs and were involved in high scoring encounters, where both sides got on the scoreboard. All six of their club friendlies saw the scoreboard ticker across its equation and that trend should continue in this meetings.

Mechelen vs Antwerp: Team News and Match Preview

Mechelen

Wouter Vrancken must have had explicit orders at how his team should fare. It seems those orders did not have anything stipulating their defensive duties. It showed in their preparations as this Mechelen squad has the singular focus on outscoring their rivals. They will be tested in the curtain-raiser for the 2021/22 campaign, one that would indicate the success of their tactical shift. Vrancken has the pick of his squad to choose from with only Joachim Van Damme remains a long term absentee.

Antwerp

In all likelihood, Brian Priske would not be pleased with the Great Old's performances in their club friendlies. They had to labour hard to get on the scoreboard, while their rivals got behind their lines with relative ease. Mechelen will expose their issues with their fast-paced attack. Moreover, their woes have been compounded with injuries to Bruny Nsimba, Junior Pius and Sander Coopman.
