All of our predictions, stats and the user poll for Eupen v Sint-Truidense VV are shown below (inc. the best betting odds).
Eupen head into this game coming off the back of a 0-0 First Division A stalemate against KV Kortrijk.
It’s been all too rare in recent times where Eupen have kept a clean sheet. In fact, Pandas have been scored against in 5 of their previous 6 clashes, giving up 13 goals during that time. That being said, time will tell if that trend shall be replicated here in this game.
Going into this contest, Eupen have not won against Sint-Truidense VV in their previous 7 matches in the league.
In the game prior to this, Sint-Truidense VV drew 0-0 in the First Division A match with Oostende.

Taking a look at their past results, Sint-Truidense VV:
- remain unbeaten by Eupen in away games against them for the last 3 league matches.
- haven’t won away from home in the past 4 league matches.

There were also goals galore in those games, with 25 overall which averages out at 4.17 goals per meeting.

Team News: Eupen
There’s just the sole fitness concern for the Eupen manager Beñat San José to be concerned about thanks to an otherwise robust group. Leonardo Rocha (Knee Injury) won’t play.
It looks as if Pandas should employ a 4-3-3 system for this game, handing starts to Ortwin De Wolf, Nils Schouterden, Jordi Amat Mass, Benoit Poulain, Jonathan Heris, Knowledge Musona, Jens Cools, Stef Peeters, Isaac Nuhu, Julien Ngoy and Konan Ignace Jocelyn N’Dri.
Team News: Sint-Truidense VV
Owing to an otherwise healthy group, there is just a single fitness issue for the Sint-Truidense VV manager Kevin Muscat to be concerned with. Steve De Ridder (Collarbone fracture) won’t be playing here.
We believe De Kanaries could decide to begin the game with a 4-4-2 lineup using Kenny Steppe, Pol García Tena, Jorge Teixeira, Samy Mmaee, Ko Matsubara, Chris Durkin, Santiago Colombatto, Samuel Asamoah, Keito Nakamura, Yuma Suzuki and Facundo Colidio.
Our assessment is that Sint-Truidense VV and Eupen could both find goals hard to come by here.
Let’s see how it plays out, but a draw with few scoring chances is looking likely to us. Our tip is therefore for a very close game with a 0-0 score at the end of this game.
