Anderlecht will be happy to have grabbed 3 points in their last match, where they clocked up a 1-0 win in their away outing against RFC Seraing. Their share of possession in that meeting was 59, while racking up 14 shots along the way, 4 of which were on target, in contrast to RFC Seraing, who had 9 shots on goal with 4 on target.
While they have shown an appetite for goals over the last 6 matches, clocking up 6, they have not had it all their own way at the back and have given away 9 goals and some valuable points in the process. They are showing great consistency in finding the back of the net, having scored in 5 of their last 6 games. Brian Riemer will be concerned about his leaky defence after they have failed to keep a clean sheet at home for 10 games in a row.
A recent poor run of home form for Paars-wit in the league has seen them lose 3 games in a row at Lotto Park.
The last league instalment for Royal Antwerp produced a stunning 4-1 home win over Standard Liège. In that game they recorded 62 of the possession, with 8 attempts on goal, 6 on target. Their opponents found the target on 3 of their 10 shots on goal.
While they have been strong in attack with 14 goals scored in their last 6 games, their defence has let them down slightly, by conceeding 8 at the other end which has led to points being dropped. Up front, they have been showing a certain level of consistency in breaching their opponents' defences, with goals netted in 5 of their last 6 outings. They will need to tighten up at the back, having failed to keep a clean sheet in all but 1 of their last 6 away games.
Unbeaten in 5 of their last 6 matches can be counted as a good run of form, particularly with 3 victories included.
In front of goal, Vincent Janssen has shown an impressive run of form over the last 6 league matches, managing to find the back of the net no less than 6 times in that run of games.
Anderlecht vs Royal Antwerp Head to head
The previous meeting between these two sides was not one to live long in the memory; that match finished without a goal, and both teams settling for a point apiece.
The Great Old defence has struggled at Lotto Park, having conceded 1 or more goals in each of their last 9 visits.
In the league, Anderlecht has a good track record when they host Antwerp, getting the better of them in their last 2 home games.
With only Hannes Delcroix (Knee) and Julien Duranville (Hamstring) the main fitness concerns ahead of this fixture, Brian Riemer will be happy to have an otherwise healthy squad to pick from.
