Standard Liege – Gent is the opening game for the first round in the Jupiler League with Standard Liege coming into this with a low morale after they lost the Belgian Super Ccup against Brugge, but now they are confident that they can take the three points from Gent. The game will start at 20:30 and it will take place on Stade Maurice Dufranse in Liege, Belgium.
Standard Liege are coming into this not so happy after a lost Super-Cup from last weekend. They conceded two goals in the end of the firs half and that was it. After all it was a really balanced game where Liege could’ve turn around the result but they weren’t able to score from the chances that they’ve got. Now they are playing in the opening match of the new season where they are the favorites to win as well. It will be a tough game as they face Gent, a team that ended the previous season with 4 points behind them and will be eager to get their revenge.
Gent are having an excellent streak with 12 unbeaten games. In between those game they were only two draws and things are looking very promising for this side. Last time out they’ve played against Strasbourg and won with 1-0 and with that, they managed to win the second straight game with a clean sheet as well. Now they will have a much harder job against a more experienced team which put up a good fight in every direct game. In the previous season they ended on the 4th position and they will fight for the qualification in the Europa League with the winner between Jagiellonia and Rio Ave.

Standard Liege – Gent: Prediction
When these two team met in the last season it was a great affair where we could saw 4 goals. Standard Liege were on the winning end of that as they scored three goals away from home. Now things shouldn’t be different at all but I think it will be a much balanced affair. Both teams to score should be the best way to go here. Gent are on an excellent form and will make everything to win this game and continue their great streak. The hosts on the other hand will be eager to win due to their last weekend loss, which was more annoying as they lost an important Cup.
Prediction: Both Teams To Score, Yes, Odds: 1.85
