Gent vs St. Truiden – Preview and Prediction

Gent vs St. Truiden – This week marks the beginning of the second round of the Belgian Jupiler League, with Gent hosting St. Truiden. On Friday, these teams will meet at Ghelamco Arena in a battle for bragging rights. Gent had a terrible season last year, finishing in last place in the league for the first time in the new millennium. The 2022 home team won just three league games and finished the year with 36 points, good for 14th place. They’ve been winless in their last three games across all competitions and have arrived here as a result. They opened the season with a 2-2 draw last weekend against 10-man Standard Liege on the road. Prior to that, they’d been beaten by Club Brugge in the Belgian Super Cup and allowed a late equaliser to a Liege team that had been playing with 10 men for more than seventy-five minutes. Conversely, St. Truiden secured 51 points from 34 games to end the 2021/22 season in ninth place, firmly within the middle of the table. A promotion to the Conference League Group was almost missed by them due to a negative goal differential. Goals were scored, but they also had significant defensive problems. The last time out, the visitors tied Union Saint-Gilloise 1-1 in a match played in First Division A. Sint-defense Truiden’s has been on an impressive run recently, allowing only four goals in their last six games. Moreover, they came out on top in four of their six preseason exhibition matches against other clubs.
