Vanity sunshine against permanent crisis – this is how the pairing between Gent and Anderlecht can be initiated. The hosts have had their best season so far after the 2015 championship: second place in the Jupiler League. At home, the buffaloes are a power: ten wins and two draws confirm this assessment.

The only downside is currently the injury of top striker Roman Yaremchuk. But the squad, which is well staffed across the board, cannot be stopped by this failure. For four rounds, only victories have been won – including against the reigning champions from Genk.
It is also noteworthy that the three league games of the new year always score at least three of their own. Hereby Genk has almost twice as many goals as the upcoming opponent in the course of the season. Anderlecht is in ninth place and, like last year, has had a disappointing season.
The construction sites in the Brussels team are diverse in nature: injured attacking players lead to problems in the storm and a young line of defense is always negligent in preventing the opponent’s chances. In Gent against Anderlecht, the tip is aimed at a home win.
Gent – Statistics & current form
The buffalos are back! After the championship four years ago, things went a bit downhill in terms of sport, but the Flemish have been very constant this season so far. Not just in the domestic Jupiler League, but equally in the Europa League.
Here the preliminary round was completed as group first and without defeat. The Roma as the next opponent in the playoffs can prepare for two tough games. The last matchday in the Belgian House of Lords also finally showed that points are also being scored away from home.
The win with the promoted from Mechelen was the third success in review of the last four guest appearances. Previously, the weakness away was the only drawback on the KAA side.
Instead, it has been going smoothly in front of their own audience since the beginning of the season: in addition to Antwerp and runner-up Club Brugge, only the buffaloes are unbeaten in front of their home crowd. Ten wins and two division of points also represent the best result of all representatives in the Belgian upper house.
An additional league-wide record value is delivered by the home offensive. This hits 2.66 goals per home game. Roman Yaremchuk in particular delivered a great season, but will now fail due to injury to the Achilles tendon.
But even without the unerring Ukrainian, the goal machine continues to run at full speed in second place. So far, she has scored an average of 3.5 goals in the three league games in the new year!
No wonder, because in addition to Yaremchuk, the Danish coach Jess Thorup has several other powerful offensive players. Examples are Canadian Jonathan David or Belgian Laurent Depoitre. The first-named youngster is particularly a reliable passport.
With eight assists, the offensive player takes first place in this ranking in the Jupiler League. Given his very good condition and the absence of Yaremchuk, Gent vs. Anderlecht also offer the odds for his next goal celebration.
In addition to the assist skills mentioned, David is very successful as an executor. With twelve goals, he never took the equally great second place in the goalscoring ranking.
After a small drop in shape at the end of last year, when the professional seemed a bit exhausted due to the large number of games, David returned to the second half of the season with renewed vigor. So the youngster scored in two of the three league games so far in January.
The use of Depoitre is still questionable, who recently had to pass at short notice when winning against the Flemish neighbor from Mechelen. However, as described, staff shortfalls do not currently throw the buffalo off the track – no matter how powerful the injured player was before.
Probable lineup of Gent:
↪ Kaminski – Mohammadi – Ngadeu-Ngadjui – Plastun – Castro-Montes – Kums – Owusu – Odjidja-Ofoe – Bezus – David – Depoitre

Anderlecht – Statistics & current form
The sixth of last year must continue to worry about participating in the championship round. At the moment, there is a gap of four points to Genk in sixth place. The violets now only play endgames.
Six of these are due by the end of the regular season. Most recently, the RSC scored a close 1-0 win over Mouscron. Certainly deserved, but on the other hand the result shows how difficult the former series champion once again had against a team that was out of shape.
“Success gives us confidence. We are now taking this to Gent. ” – Anderlecht striker Jeremy Doku told RSCA TV after defeating Mouscron
Antoine Colassin scored the goal and is seen as a new hope in Brussels. The 18-year-old has only played three games for Anderlecht, but is now playing for the second time. The previous game day showed no less that the capital city is still in bad shape.
Even at the bottom of the table Cercle Brugge, Anderlecht barely missed a disgrace. The underdog was 1-0 ahead of the Mauves et Blancs before the 87th minute before a double strike from the RSC turned the game around. A constant problem during this season are the numerous injured players with the eleven from the Brussels district.
The record champion’s hospital is also currently very busy: whether Frenchman Samir Nasri or Belgian international Yari Verschaeren in midfield or Brit Kemar Roofe by storm – just three examples of injured players who are once again not available.
The many staff losses are undoubtedly an important negative factor when it comes to why things are not going well this season in Anderlecht. It is not very helpful in this context that with Alexis Saelemakers one of the few playful bright spots has been given to Milan.
However, the AC’s offer for the right winger, who also kicks the Belgians’ Under-21 team, was just too good to refuse.
Probable lineup of Anderlecht:
↪ van Crombrugge – Murillo – Kompany – Luckassen – Cobbaut – Zulj – Lokonga Sambi – Doku – Chadli – Saelemaekers – Colassin

Gent vs Anderlecht Direct comparison & statistics highlights
In the first half of the year, the showdown between the Flemish and capitals was a peat festival. The teams separated with 3: 3 in Brussels. Thanks to the draw, the KAA has now been unbeaten for four comparisons with the 34-time title holder (2-2-0).
In addition, the buffalos were able to win the most recent three home games for this pairing – twice with a clean sheet. For the upcoming game between Gent and Anderlecht, the odds indicate a continuation of this series.

The KAA has now established itself as the second strongest force in Belgium. There are still nine points behind the leaders from Bruges, but in the final championship round the teams will meet twice directly, which is why Gent can still dream of the second triumph of club history after 2015.
The largest title collection in the country, in turn, show the guests. But the couples-wit are currently far away from other triumphs. The team of coach Franky Vercauteren is making slow progress in the table after a completely misguided start to the season and has to accept setbacks again and again.
Key facts – Gent vs Anderlecht tips
A sustainable upward trend cannot be seen at the RSC. The personnel situation in these weeks is again too tense. Around half a dozen regular players have to pass because of a wound. The Gent vs. Anderlecht tip therefore includes a home win. This is supported by the home strength of the home side.
So far, none of the twelve games in front of their own backdrop have been lost. Although Yaremchuk and possibly Depoitre lack important players at the host, the remaining squad of coach Jess Thorup is strong enough to make up for this minor deficit.
