Since returning to the Jupiler Pro League in 2019, KV Mechelen are usually a mid-table team. It seems that will be the case for the current year, too, as they are 8th on the table with 28 points from 22 games. KV Mechelen are playing well lately with three wins in the previous four matches. Last weekend, they won 3-1 at home against RWDM. Although RWDM's Jeff Reine-Adelaide got a red card already in the fourth minute, and the home side had much bigger ball possession and more shots on the goal, KV Mechelen needed to score two goals in the second half's stoppage time to secure a big win. After another victory, KV Mechelen will have a lot of trust in themself heading for the game versus Anderlecht on Thursday night. 

Anderlecht didn't win the title in the strongest Belgian league since 2017. This year, they are second on the table but currently eight points behind the league leader, Royale Union SG. Anderlecht struggled since the winter break as they recorded two draws and one loss in all competitions. In the previous match, they played 2-2 at home against Royale Union SG. The home side was close to defeat, but Thorgan Hazard's equalizer late in the game saved one point. 

KV Mechelen vs Anderlecht pick: Both teams to score - yes

KV Mechelen scored five goals in the last two matches, while Anderlecht scored at least one goal in each of the previous 24 games. Both teams to score - yes should be the best betting option for this tie.
