Gent to Win
Sint Truidense will not want a repeat of their last competitive fixture that finished in favour of the visitors, Anderlecht. In KAA Gent, they have their work cut out for themselves, as the visitors are on a four-match winning run. Despite being on the road, the Buffalos should take home the three points on offer in their bid to improve on their 7th place finish last time around.
Total Goals: Over 2.5
With the last season in the rearview mirror, both sides will hope their defensive deficiencies are out as well. However, if their respective pre-season outings are any gauge, both continue to be haunted with mistakes. There should be plenty of opportunities for the attacking units in the final third, which should prove to be fruitful to provide a high-scoring affair. We anticipate an Over 2.5 goals scoreline by the time the referee has blown to conclude matters at the Hel Van Stayen.
Both Teams to Score: Yes
There have been three clean sheets in the last ten outings involving Sint-Truiden, one in their favour and two against them. Gent has had more luck with four in favour and one against across the same period. Hein Vanhaezebrouck would want his side to shut out their rivals but confidence in their backline will not be very high. Expect the scorers to be in action on either side as both Sint-Truiden and Gent forwards put the ball into the back of the net.
Sint-Truiden vs Gent: Team News and Match Preview
Peter Maes will want an improved season at the helm of Sint-Truiden. Their 15th placed finish in the First Division A was below the expectations and a repeat offence will not be taken lightly. The fans will certainly hope so given their impressive performances in the preseason engagements. They remained unbeaten home and away, and will look to take that form into the season opener against KAA Gent. The form of Yuma Suzuki will be important for them as the Japanese striker scored the majority of their goals last season.
There is no denying that KAA Gent are far from their lofty heights. This puts Hein Vanhaezebrouck in a tough situation at the Ghelamco Arena. He has to steer them from yet another disappointing season and it will not be easy to guide from the sidelines. They showed signs of life in the expert dismantling of Valerenga in the Europa Conference League and more of the same will be expected of them in the Belgian Jupiler League. They have strengthened with the addition of Gianni Bruno and the attacker should take them forward.
