With an average of 3.5 goals per match over the last six games alone, both teams have scored 21 goals, with KAA Gent accounting for 15 of those goals.

Players and injury news for Gent vs Anderlecht
It doesn’t get much better in terms of selection, with Hein Vanhaezebrouck, the KAA Gent manager, just needing to worry about one player’s fitness out of a nearly full roster. Laurent Depoitre is out of the running due to an Achilles tendon tear.
Brian Riemer, the manager of RSC Anderlecht, is missing several players from the team. Yari Verschaeren (ruptured cruciate ligament), Théo Leoni (ankle injury), and Justin Lonwijk (knock) will not be playing here.
KAA Gent: Nardi (GK), Samoise, Agbor, Watanabe, Fortuna, Gerkens, Kums, Gandelman, Fofana, Orban, Cuypers
Anderlecht: Schmeichel, Sardella, Debast, Vertonghen, Augustinsson, Delaney, Rits, Stroeykens, Dreyer, Dolberg, Hazard
Although we believe RSC Anderlecht can find a way to score against this KAA Gent lineup in this game, it is doubtful to be sufficient to prevent a loss. We predict that at halftime, KAA Gent will win 2-1 with goals from both teams. Here, we’ll see what transpires.
