In their last match Royal Antwerp enforced their superiority over RWD Molenbeek with a 4-0 away win. Their share of possession in that meeting was 67%, while racking up 13 shots along the way, 9 of which were on target, in contrast to RWD Molenbeek, who had 2 shots on goal with 1 on target.
Manager Mark van Bommel will be reasonably pleased with his team's performances in front of goal, having scored 11 goals in their last 6 games, but will want to tighten up his defence with 6 goals conceded in the same period. They have only kept 2 clean sheets in their last 6 home games.
Their strong run of form at home now gives them an unbeaten streak of 14 games in a row.
Michel-Ange Balikwisha will be feeling confident about adding his name to the scoresheet once more at Bosuilstadion, having notched up 5 goals for Royal Antwerp in their last 6 league matches at home.

A 1-1 draw and a point gained against Genk in their previous meeting will have been considered a fairly decent for Mechelen last time out. In that game they recorded 44 % of the possession, with 11 attempts on goal, 2 on target. Their opponents found the target on 1 of their 14 shots on goal.
They have circumvented their opponent's defence to score 10 times in their last 6 league games but unfortunately haven't managed to lock things down at their end, conceding 8 goals in these games and, in the process, missing out on some valuable points. They have scored in 5 of their last 6 away games, but they have failed to keep a clean sheet in 5 of their last 6 games overall.
They have had a good run of form recently, unbeaten in 5 of their last 6 games and picking up 3 wins along the way.
Having scored 3 goals in his last 6 league games for Mechelen, Norman Bassette will be looking to keep his tally up with a goal in their next outing.
