KAS Eupen hope to finally end their winless drought, dating back to before the coronavirus-enforced lockdown, when they host Gent on Friday evening.

Since a 2-1 win against Royal Excel Mouscron on February 29, they've gone seven matches (including friendlies) without a victory to celebrate. Will their barren run finally end this weekend? Gent were in a similar situation, with five successive Pro League defeats – including two from last season, before their 1-0 win over Mechelen last time out.

Can they string together back-to-back wins for the first time since February to truly kickstart their campaign once and for all? Read my match preview, for the correct score predictions and best betting tips ahead of this fixture.

Eupen vs Gent Betting Tips

Anderson Niangbo's first-half strike proved decisive for Gent as they were narrow winners against Mechelen in a match many expected them to win. After four Pro League games, only a point separates 12th-placed Mechelen from Eupen in 16th, which rather typifies an unpredictable start to 2020-21.

Niangbo, a £3.6m signing from Red Bull Salzburg in January, has emerged as one of their key men – alongside Ukrainian international Igor Plastun. Surprisingly, the 30-year-old defender leads the goalscoring charts with two this term. It's already more than he had throughout the entire Pro League campaign in 2019-20.

It'll be interesting to see how they fare against an Eupen side that have proven difficult to beat recently, despite lacking wins. Yuma Suzuki's 85th-minute penalty stifled them last time out, during a 1-1 draw against Sint-Truidense.

Despite a 4-0 thrashing by reigning champions Club Brugge on August 16, Friday's hosts are gradually sharpening up defensively. The question remains whether they can click creatively in the final third, with Stoke academy graduate Julien Ngoy one to watch after joining last month.

Eupen vs Gent Correct Score Predictions

Gent have a vastly superior H2H record against Eupen (nine wins, two defeats, one draw) and will be expecting that improves this weekend. After earning their first win of 20-21 last time out, while maintaining their match sharpness with a friendly draw against AZ Alkmaar four days later, I fancy them to narrowly prevail here.
