KV Oostende vs Anderlecht Prediction, Preview, Lineups & Betting Tips
Second match in round 26 of the Belgian First Division A will take place early on Saturday night, 10 February 2018, when KV Oostende is set to host to the reigning champion Anderlecht. However, current campaign leaves Anderlecht 12 points behind leaders Club Brugge and Hein Vanhaezebrouck must deal with an extremely difficult challenge during his first year at the ” Constant Vanden Stock Stadium”.
On the other hand, “De Kustboys” are 14th, having 7 points more from last placed Mechelen (16th), which is quite a disappointment compared with last season’s positioning – Oostende finished fourth and even won UEFA Europa League promotion.

Belgian First Division A: KV Oostende vs Anderlecht Prediction and Betting Tips
Anderlecht started the new year with an away win (0-1) in Genk, followed by three consecutive draws in next three games. They all were against unpretentious sides, especially the last weekend’s 2-2 home draw vs last-placed Mechelen, when RSCA even were in a losing position on half-time. Nevertheless, Anderlecht is surely the team with more quality and despite recent transfer of their key player Sofiane Hanni, RSCA still have enough potential to win over a struggling side in KV Oostende’s face.
Hosts have lost three of their last five matches and four of their last five home matches in all competitions, so we expect another defeat for the West Flanders club. Our betting experts fancy suggested betting odds on Anderlecht – 1X2 Betting.
