Standard Liege – Anderlecht, First Division A Prediction
ANALYSIS AND PREDICTION FOR STANDARD - ANDERLECHT
Standard Liege lost with 0-4 away game to Bruges earlier this week, and so their chances for a title seriously diminished, although the difference was only 5 points, and Bruges advanced by 4. However, Genk and Bruges played a direct match this round, so Standard can take advantage of this. Before the defeat by Bruges Standard were in a series of 4 consecutive wins, so now they have to show character
Anderlecht is in very weak form and lost 1-2 from Antwerp in the last round, which means they have three consecutive losses in the league. Their goal was the Champions League zone, which will not happen, and the constant problems with injured players do not help them at all. Anderlecht has played quite offensive and has allowed conceding goals almost throughout the season, so there will certainly be a lot of summer changes in this team.
Standard are in brilliant form at home and have 9 wins in the last 10 games, but the more interesting thing is that Standard have conceded a goal in the last 8 home games, which means their matches are very open. It is logical now that we also see this with one of the attacking teams in the league. Anderlecht has conceded 8 goals in the last 3 games, and there are not many signs of improved defense. Prediction – Over 2.5 goals at 1.84.
- In the last 5 games between Standard and Anderlecht there was BTTS and over 2.5 goals
