📊 Form Guide
KAA Gent are hoping to win again after their last result, a 1-4 Conference League triumph vs İstanbul Başakşehir.
For KAA Gent, the goalscorers were Gift Orban (31', 32', 34') and Hugo Cuypers (37'). Adnan Januzaj (88') scored for İstanbul Başakşehir.
In their preceding 6 games, Hein Vanhaezebrouck's KAA Gent have hit the back of the net 13 times, with that being an average number of goals scored per match of 2.17.
Looking at the pre-match facts, KAA Gent:
- haven't lost in the league to Eupen in their previous 4 matches.
- are unbeaten in their previous 2 league matches at home.
In their previous game, Eupen drew 4-4 in the First Division A tie with Oostende.
In that game, Eupen managed 67% possession and 29 attempts on goal with 10 on target. For Eupen, the scorers were Djeidi Gassama (45'), Smail Prevljak (59'), Boris Lambert (76') and Regan Charles-Cook (84'). At the other end, Oostende had 14 shots on goal with 9 of them on target. Thierry Ambrose (13'), Théo Ndicka (56'), Fraser Hornby (61') and Matej Rodin (97') scored for Oostende.
Eupen have been effective going forward in the lead-up to this encounter, scoring 10 times in their previous 6 matches. While their manager Edward Still will no doubt take that as a positive sign, Eupen can also improve defensively after being scored against in 6 of those same outings. We will see whether or not that trend will be continued on into this next match.
Their previous form shows that Eupen:
- have not won against KAA Gent when they've played them away from home in the last 5 league matches. Not good at all.
- have not won away from home in their last 4 matches in the league.

A combined sum of 15 goals were shared by the two clubs throughout the course of those matches, with 10 of them from De Buffalo's and 5 belonging to Pandas. That is an average goals per game value of 2.5.
The previous league game featuring these sides was First Division A match day 11 on 09/10/2022 which ended up with the score at Eupen 0-4 KAA Gent.

📰 Team News: KAA Gent
Darko Lemajic (Adductors avulsion), Sulayman Marreh (Overstretching), Andrew Hjulsager (Achilles tendon problems), Bruno Godeau (Ankle Injury) and Tarik Tissoudali (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) aren’t available for KAA Gent manager Hein Vanhaezebrouck. Alessio Castro-Montes cannot play in this game through suspension.
In our view, De Buffalo's will possibly make use of the 3-4-2-1 formation for this one featuring Paul Nardi, Kamil Piatkowski, M. Ngadeu Ngadjui, Jordan Torunarigha, Vadis Odjidja-Ofoe, Julien de Sart, Sven Kums, Matisse Samoise, Hugo Cuypers, Hyun-seok Hong and Gift Emmanuel Orban.
🗞️ Team News: Eupen
Eupen manager Edward Still has to choose a team with limited availability. Nathan Bitumazala (Muscle Injury), Jérôme Déom (Shoulder Injury) and Jan Gorenc (Ankle Surgery) are those who can’t be considered.
We’re of the thinking that Pandas seem most likely to begin the game with a 3-4-3 formation, settling for Lennart Moser, Boris Lambert, Oleksandr Filin, Loïc Bessile, Yentl Van Genechten, Stef Peeters, Gary Magnée, Jason Davidson, Konan N'Dri, Smail Prevljak and Djeidi Gassama.
In this match, KAA Gent will probably be able to create a good number of chances & successful shots on target.
At the other end, Eupen are also probably going to find it difficult to make a breakthrough although we do see them converting at least once here.
We therefore think that it’s going to be a pretty comfortable 3-1 victory for KAA Gent after 90 minutes.
