Gent will head to tyhe Bosuilstadion to face Antwerp this Thursday. The "Buffalos" are 5 points behind league leaders Club Brugge and their mission is to close the gap to the front.
Currently sitting in the last playoff spot (6th), Antwerp will try to keep their strong performance at home, as the team just lost 2 points in the 6 home matches played so far in the league. Last time they played in front of their fans, Antwerp beat league leaders Club Brugge, showing how tough is to defeat them at their home turf. Not only their producing good results at home, but also combined with good stats as the team is averaging almost 3 goals per game. Much of it relies on the impressive performances of their striker Dieumerci Mbokani, who currently leads the league's topscoring list with 11 goals.
Bolat; Buta, Hoedt, Arslanagic, De Laet; Haroun, De Sart, Miyoshi; Rodrigues, Lamkel Ze, Mbokani
Gent is second in the League, 5 points behind Club Brugge and if they wish to close the gap for the current Belgian Champions, they need to improve their performances away from home. Gent has 7 wins in 7 league matches at home but won just 1 match away from the Ghelamco Arena, which is bad for a team that is in contention for Jupiler's League title. With 8 goals and 4 assists, Canadian young winger Jonathan David is the main weapon for a team that will face a really tough match as Antwerp are unbeaten at home.

Despite being viewed as favourites, Gent will play against a team that didn't taste a defeat at their home turf.
