Jupiler League Week 2 Saturday Previews

These are previews from matches involving Belgian Teams with all the latest on team news, player form, injuries along with my personal betting angles, ...

Not much betting action yesterday aside from the pre-game bet which ended in a push as 1-0 was a pretty fair result in the match between Union and Charleroi. I once again opposed Union based on what I saw in their upcoming Champions League Qualifier match at home taking rangers +0 @ 1.880 for 0.4 units.

Cercle Brugge vs Anderlecht

Cercle Brugge went on a really hot streak at the end of last season also just playing great pressing football under their coach Thalhammer. They however lost key offensive player Matondo which left them with not creating that much in their match against Westerlo (0 shots on target). A red card of Popovic (who is suspended today) also didn't help them. Overall, I still see cercle as an ok team. Anderlecht won with a 2-0 score and you can see the potential they have in the team while it all wasn't yet too convincing against a rather poor Oostende side. Especially later in the match they weren't able to carry the midfield. Their 2 new loaned strikers Esposito & Silva who should be a really added value to the team are able to play and might be in the starting 11. At this point, Anderlecht feels like a team that won't be that spectacular but still take their points. For this match today I'm just going to wait and see what happens. No Pre-Game Bets

Oostende vs Kv Mechelen

Oostende lost to Anderlecht and seem to have a striker problem. They have Gueye who should be their best striker but he started on the bench for to me an unknown reason. Traditionally, coach Vanderheadge plays offensive-minded at home. Mechelen at this point doesn't look as good as last season and they lost last week at home against Antwerp who not yet live up to the team they have. So Mechelen is not yet a team I'm looking to back at this point. I guess a draw would not be the worst result for both as they both lost last week. Pure based on quality, Mechelen should be better which explains the -0.25 line. The only bet I'm slightly tempted by is Mechelen +1 corners but I will wait for in-game before potentially taking a bet on that. No Pre-Game Bets

OH Leuven vs Westerlo

OHL is not fully ready yet, especially on the offensive end, but they still managed to win with a 0-2 score against Kortijk which doesn't give an accurate view as they were outplayed in the 1st half pretty much. Westerlo took a 2-0 win against Cercle who had to play with 10 most of the match. At this point based on the odds they are getting, I think Westerlo could be a bit too overhyped and i'm not sold yet that they are the real deal similar to Union Last season. This to the point where I'm willing to take a 0.25 unit gamble on OH Leuven +0.25 @ 1.951 on this match as they showed good resilience against kortrijk last week. For promoted teams, there usually is quite a gap between home and away matches.

AA Gent vs Sint-Truiden

AA Gent was really unfortunate last week as they got 2 clear penalties denied. They went from being 1-0 behind to 1-2 ahead against Standard who mainly played defense after getting a red card. They never looked in danger after that, but a lack in focus still somehow made them take the 2-2 late for an unneeded point loss. De Sart & Depoitre are still injured with Odidja set to start on the bench. Overall I rate AA Gent pretty high in what they should be capable of great things similar to last season. Stvv in their home match against Union came out really strong and with very high energy scoring the 1-0 on a counter in minute 23' and continuing afterward. After the 1-1 came out of nowhere in the 2nd half, they seemed a bit shaken up which over the 90 minutes gave a fair 1-1 draw. Stvv is now unbeaten in their last 10 league matches mainly at home and against smaller teams. I'm expecting similar high-energy from them which will have to be matched by AA Gent. Over the 90 Minutes, Gent should simply be the superior team in their current form and once the 1st goal comes, at least 1 more should follow. The odds for me are worth the pre-game gamble as I took 0.3 units on AA Gent -1.5 @ 2.758. If AA Gent ends up winning, I see it likely with more goals so I rather go high-odds & lower stake.
