  • Competition: Jupiler Pro League

  • Venue: Daio Wasabi Stayen (Sint-Truiden)

Sint-Truiden are playing its ninth consecutive season in the Jupiler Pro League, where they were mostly in the lower part of the league's table. This season, they are doing well, as they are currently 9th with 28 points after 22 rounds - seven points away from the danger zone. The general impression is that they are much closer in quality to the teams battling for Europe than those fighting for survival.

In recent years, Gent has been mostly the fourth or fifth-best team in Belgium. Last year, they finished fifth and secured the Europa Conference League appearance, where they eventually reached the group phase, and the 1/16 Finals, where they will face Maccabi Haifa. In the Jupiler Pro League, Gent are fourth with 39 points, already 13 away from the first-placed Royale Union SG.

Sint-Truiden vs Gent pick: Sint-Truiden to win or draw

Sint-Truiden are pretty consistent this year, losing only 27.3% of their league games (six of 22). Since the winter break, they had a really tough schedule but still did OK. They lost 2:1 vs the best team in Belgium, Royale Union SG, after conceding a goal in the 97th minute and then drew with Genk at home (1:1) in a match where they missed one penalty. Winning one point in two games is far from impressive, but the way they played is encouraging. 

Gent are in bad form, with just one point in three games since the winter break. One of the reasons behind it is the absence of key players due to injuries and leaving to play for their national teams. Also, the club sold two very important players, so we can safely say this is a very challenging period for the popular Buffalos. 

Away from home, Gent won just four games in ten league games, but those wins were mostly against teams from the lower part of the league's table. So, considering that and everything above, we believe that Sint-Truiden are capable of winning at least one point at Daio Wasabi Stayen.

Sint-Truiden team news

The team's first goalkeeper, Zion Suzuki, left the team to play for his national team (Japan) in the ongoing Asian Cup. At the same time, the team's top goalscorer and probably the best offensive player, Aboubakary Koita, is with his national team (Mauritania) in the ongoing AFCON.

Due to injury, the team will miss the 37-year-old veteran Shinji Okazaki. However, Okazaki is no longer an important factor and the team will not miss him too much.

Interestingly, the team's backup goalkeeper, Daniel Schmidt, left the team during the Winter transfer window and joined Gent since they are having injury problems with their first two goalkeepers.

Gent team news

Due to injuries, the team will miss their two best goalkeepers, Paul Nardi and Davy Roef, along with an important attacking midfielder, Andrew Hjulsager.

Fortuna Nurio, Hyun-Seok Hong, Tarik Tissoudali, and Tsuyoshi Watanabe are with their national teams for the ongoing AFCON and Asian Cup and are unavailable for the upcoming game. 

During the Winter transfer window, the club sold Malick Fofana for 17 million euros and Gift Orban for 12 million euros to Lyon. To replace them, the club spent only 3.3 million euros to acquire Daisuke Yokota from Gornik Zabrze and Franck Surdez from Xamax.
