OH Leuven vs Eupen Betting Tips: BTTS and over 2.5 goals

Both sides have struggled for consistency this season, with hosts OH Leuven losing three of their last five home FDA matches. While remaining ninth in the table, the home team are not in good form, having won just two of their nine most recent league matches.

Analysing the recent results of both sides does reveal an expectation for goals in this FDA match, with the away side seeing some remarkably high-scoring matches in recent months. Indeed, on the road, Eupen have seen BTTS and over 2.5 goals scored in six of their last 10 FDA matches, including four of the last five. An incredible 25 goals were scored in those four matches, including a crazy 5:5 draw at Zulte Waregem.

Leuven have also seen plenty of goals in their recent matches, with five of their six most recent FDA matches seeing BTTS, and we anticipate another high-scoring encounter at the King Power at Den Dreef Stadion. Indeed, 18 goals have been scored in Leuven´s five most recent league matches, while history also suggests this game should see plenty of goals. Each of the last six meetings between these sides saw BTTS, with the four most recent matches also going over 2.5 goals. An average of over five goals was scored in those four matches since March 2021.

Given all that, we´re backing the BTTS and over 2.5 goal selections with confidence in a fixture where either team could emerge with all three points.
