Eupen – Anderlecht  Over 2.5 Goals & Both teams to score

Eupen can be satisfied with the way they opened their season, as they managed to come with a 2:2 away draw in round one against much favored Club Brugge. They conceded first from the penalty in the 56th, but appeared more than well in transition, successfully reversing over Kayembe in the 60th and Ngoy in the 77th. However, maybe with a certain dose of misfortune, they conceded an equalizer just before the full time, but never the less took a valuable point at the season’s start.Central defender Magnee is long-term absentee for the hosts. They also miss defenders Poulain and Adjei.

Anderlecht failed to meet the expectations in their opening match at home against slightly underestimated St. Gilloise when they suffered a pretty convincing 1:3 defeat. After being in deficit since the 20th minute, the hosts bounced back with an equalizer just before the end of the first part, but despite their ball possession advantage throughout the clash, failed to be more creative. Instead, they conceded two more in the continuation, simply not having enough ideas on how to respond accordingly.Defenders Cobbaut and Mykhailichenko are injured for the guests without playing till now in the new season anyway.

Eupen positively surprised in their opening match, as they showed a pretty confident front line, and I definitely see them appearing in a similar way here as well. As for the guests, they certainly have more to offer compared to their last clash, and I don’t see them repeating the same mistakes. To me, everything about this one is pointing to a large number of goals from both sides, so choosing that instead of outcomes is looking like the best bet in my opinion.
