Alexandre De Bruyn (Hamstring Injury) and Roman Yaremchuk (Corona virus) are not available for Gent boss Wim De Decker.
Team News: Red Star Belgrade
Thanks to a largely available squad, there’s just a single fitness worry for the Red Star Belgrade boss Dejan Stanković to be concerned about. Milan Rodic (Corona virus) won’t be playing here. Sékou Sanogo cannot play in this game through suspension.
Looking at these two teams, we feel that Red Star Belgrade must be fancied to break down this KAA Gent lineup, however it possibly won’t be as many as the goals that they could concede.
We are anticipating a tight encounter finishing with a 2-1 advantage for KAA Gent at the end of the 90 minutes. Hopefully this is a good one.
