Oostende vs Antwerp Match Preview and Prediction

Oostende vs Antwerp: Following their 2-0 Belgian Cup victory over RWD Molenbeek, Oostende will be hoping for more of the same. Oostende’s only goal came from Ewan Henderson in the 26th minute.

Oostende games have recently been lively, with plenty of scoring. Over the last half-dozen games, both teams have scored a total of 20 goals (an average of 3.33 goals per game), with Oostende accounting for 14 of those. It will be fascinating to see if or not this tendency continues into the following encounter.

Antwerp will enter this match fresh off a 2-1 First Division A win against Club Brugge.

Antwerp had 51% possession and 11 shots at goal, three of which were on target. Antwerp’s goals came in the 86th and 99th minutes, respectively. Club Brugge had 13 attempts on goal, with four on target. Maxim De Cuyper (54′) scored for Club Brugge.
