ℹ️ Team News: Antwerp

Soumaïla Coulibaly (Leg injury), Michel-Ange Balikwisha (Knee surgery), Ritchie De Laet (Muscle injury), Anthony Valencia (Fracture of fibula shaft), Eliot Matazo (Muscle injury) and Björn Engels (Achilles heel problems) won’t be able to feature for Antwerp gaffer Mark van Bommel.

It’s our opinion that The Great Old will possibly employ a 4-2-3-1 formation in the match, beginning the first half with Jean Butez, Jelle Bataille, Zeno Van Den Bosch, Toby Alderweireld, Owen Wijndal, Mandela Keita, Mahamadou Doumbia, Chidera Ejuke, Jurgen Ekkelenkamp, Jacob Ondrejka and Vincent Janssen.

📰 Team News: KV Mechelen

KV Mechelen boss Besnik Hasi has not got a full squad to pick from. Norman Bassette (Meniscus injury), Nikola Storm (Cruciate ligament tear), Rafik Belghali (Knee medial ligament tear) and Toon Raemaekers (Cruciate ligament injury) will miss out on this game.

There’s a good chance that KV Mechelen might play in a 3-4-3 formation, starting Gaëtan Coucke, Munashe Garananga, David Bates, Elias Cobbaut, Bill Antonio, Ngal'ayel Mukau, Rob Schoofs, Daam Foulon, Geoffry Hairemans, Lion Lauberbach and Kerim Mrabti.

🔮 Prediction

We’re of the opinion that Antwerp should really score a couple of goals when they come up against KV Mechelen, who could well find it tough to find the back of the net.

We’re therefore expecting to see a 2-0 winning margin for Antwerp at the end of the 90 minutes.

Our expert partners are tipping over 1.5 goals for this match. Check out their VIP predictions here.
