Antwerp were in touching distance of Champions League qualification before March's suspension of play, but return to league action with renewed belief on Saturday. They host Mouscron as the 2020-21 campaign gets underway, a side who finished mid-table in Belgium's top division last season.

There's a youthful look to Fernando Da Cruz's side, which could prove crucial as they target improvements after last term's inconsistencies. Can they start the new campaign with a bang against one of last season's top-four? Or will it be business as usual for this weekend's hosts?

Read my match preview, for the correct score predictions and best betting tips ahead of this fixture.

Royal Antwerp vs Mouscron Betting Tips

Antwerp officially finished fourth, two points behind second-placed Gent with a game still to play, when coronavirus halted play. It feels fitting then, that the 30th and final league fixture – which was eventually cancelled – is against Mouscron themselves.

There will be new faces galore on display this weekend, particularly in a Mouscron team that had loanees aplenty in 2019-20. Kevin Wimmer (Stoke City) and Aleix Garcia (Manchester City) are among those who have since returned to their parent clubs.

However, Da Cruz's ties to Lille have proven handy this summer. Five players who featured in Mouscron's 2-0 friendly defeat by St. Gilloise on August 1 are on Lille's books and out on-loan.

Saad Agouzoul, Eric Bocat, Jean Onana, Virgiliu Postolachi and Agim Zeka all started last week's loss. Although it was a disappointing defeat by a second-division side, there's finally cause for quiet optimism around the club now.

Here, they have a golden opportunity to start the new season on a high. Gradually becoming a more difficult side to beat towards the end of 2019-20, it's time they step up and show their improvements.

Royal Antwerp vs Mouscron Correct Score Predictions

Unfortunately, showing said developments in such little time is easier said than done.

After outsmarting Club Brugge to win last week's Cup Final on August 1, Antwerp players will be buoyed ahead of this clash. Naturally, I'm confident in backing them to emerge victorious here.
