Mechelen vs Antwerp – Free Betting Tips & Predictions

Mechelen have won each of their last three encounters with Antwerp ahead of the teams’ clash on Sunday. Read our top predictions for this weekend’s fixture below.

Mechelen to Win

Antwerp finished in fourth position last term, three places and 11 points ahead of Sunday’s opponents Mechelen, though recent encounters between the pair have gone the underdog’s way. Indeed, Mechelen have won each of the last three tussles between the teams and each of the last four skirmishes between the sides at the AFAS-stadion Achter de Kazerne. History is on Mechelen’s side here and bettors are advised to side with them this weekend as a consequence.

Both Teams to Score

Both Mechelen (57) and Antwerp (55) finished the regular season with strong goal-scoring records last term and there is enough firepower in each camp to suggest the net could ripple at both ends on Sunday. At the AFAS-stadion Achter de Kazerne, Mechelen failed to score in just two of their last 13 assignments, while Antwerp managed to find the net in all but one of their 20 domestic fixtures on the road. In addition, BTTS landed in each of the teams’ last two meetings and the same market appeals at the prices on offer here.
