The 17th round of Jupiler League begins tonight with a clash between Malines and Gent at a noisy home ground as the hosts attempt to get back to winning ways. Conversely, the visitors will want to continue their good form and secure as soon as possible a spot in the title play-offs. Analytically…
Malines vs Gent.
Malines have now suffered 5 successive defeats. After two straight away losses they are back on home soil at the Achter de Kazerne to take on a quality side in good form and the match is expected to be a tough one. Ghomsi is back in training again.
Gent come off three consecutive victories which includes a 2-1 victory against the reigning champions. Their other two wins were registered against Charleroi and Cercle, who are considered par for the course, so the visitors head to Mechelen in good form. Maric is doubtful.
Selection: the dynamic home crowd can help the hosts but I will go with form and an away win.
