Football Betting Tips Anderlecht vs Mechelen
An opening defeat to Ostend off the coast and a goalless draw at Royal Excel Mousrcron left the euphoria over Kompany’s coup cool. However, the results are not surprising, as the team is under construction and with Nany Landry Dimata missing due to injury continues to be the top striker. The guests have their turn a snow-white vest and on the last matchday their second victory. Not against anyone, but the reigning master from Genk. The cup winner can therefore be very satisfied with the start of the season. Although the Flemings have only a relatively moderately occupied squad, but this has hardly been changed and already well recorded at this early stage of the season. In the match between Anderlecht and Mechelen, the tip is that the guests will at least not lose the match.
Anderlecht – Statistics & Current Form
The Mauves et Blancs start this season with a very young team. Whether 20-year-old striker Seven Dewaele, who celebrated his debut in the Brussels jersey last weekend, or 22-year-old Phillippe Sandler in defense, on loan from Manchester City, these are just two examples of Anderlecht’s radical new start. In addition, since this season Vincent Kompany as coach has the sporting legend. His skills as a player hardly need words to be lost, but he still has to prove his talent as a coach.
In addition, Kompany is not only the coach, but part of the newly formed defense and the activity as a coach is exercised via Simon Davies, as the Belgian international has no coach license. The only indirect exercise of his office is at least not ideal. The defensive has also lost this week with Sebastiaan Bornauw a talented player at the 1st FC Cologne. The departure of the versatile U21 national player causes a loss of quality in the defense, which is recomposed as described. At Anderlecht against Mechelen therefore the odds for a mutual goal celebrations are also interesting.
In the first two matchdays, there was hardly any playful improvement compared to the catastrophic previous year. For example, the home game against Ostend was lost in the opening match – certainly not an opponent who belongs to the heavyweights in the Jupiler League. Subsequently, only a draw was taken against the kickers of Royal Excel Mouscron from Hainaut, so the first victory is still outstanding. The latter opponent should actually represent no major obstacle as tenth of the last season.
However, the RSC is currently without its best striker Nany Landry Dimata. Last season, the 21-year-old scored 13 goals in only 20 appearances, but a knee injury has put him out of action for half a year. Furthermore, the Croatian Ivan Santini, the best scorer of last year’s season, has turned his back on the Brussels in the direction of Jiangsu Suning in the Chinese Super League. Despite the described change, the Anderlecht tend against Mechelen odds in a moderate form towards the home side.

Mechelen – Statistics & Current Form

With 0: 3 the match was lost and it seemed that the unrest of the last few weeks and months because of last year’s betting scandal, in the Mechelen in the guise of some club officials is involved, not without passing the cup winner. But the bankruptcy in Genk was quickly ticked off and the entry into the Jupiler League succeeded perfectly.
The newcomer had risen very sovereign and had won the Belgian Cup as second division. On the first two matchdays in the upper house victories against Zulte-Waregem and Genk were now retracted. Objectively speaking, the threes went well and thanks to the 3-1 home win against the Smurfs from Genk last Saturday, they were able to win the Super Cup defeat.
“I am very proud of the team and the performance that they have delivered tonight.” – KV coach Vrancken after beating champion Genk

A plus point over the upcoming opponent, since the processes on the lawn are routinely retrievable. In addition, the Kakkers is still the ascent coach Wouter Vrancken on the sidelines, which is why Mechelen can be certified in this position as well continuity. In addition, the Swede Gustav Engvall is optimistic in the offensive.

The tifo of the RSC fans at the start of the season at Constant Vanden Stock Stadium was unmistakable in his joyful statement: “As a prince gone, as a king returned”. This refers to “Vince the Prince” Kompany, who once started his extraordinary career in Brussels and has now taken over the rebuilding of the former series champion as a player-coach.
So far it has not worked out – only one point shows the balance sheet, although light opponents were on the board. The blame is less to look at Kompany, although his skills as a coach are still somewhat unclear, as the 33-year-old exercises this role for the first time and still in the dual role of a player-coach.
Rather, it can be seen soberly that the Anderlecht team is just not as well positioned as in previous years. In the recent past Anderlecht had to let several highly talented players like Youri Tielemans or Ghanaian Frank Acheampong pass. The talent factory is indeed productive, but of course only in limited form. In addition, the RSC is pursued by the injury pitch, as the best scorer Nany Landry Dimata has been missing for several months due to injury. So the season is not necessarily going to be better than last, but rather the first step in the long-term development of a powerful force.
