  • Competition: Jupiler Pro League, Conference League Group
  • Date: Saturday, 18th May, 2024
  • Kickoff: 19:45 UK / 20:45 CEST
  • Venue: Maurice Dufrasnestadion (Liège)

On Saturday evening, Standard Liege and Gent will face off at Maurice Dufrasnestadion in Liège in a match in which both teams have little to gain.

In the 21st century, Standard Liege were one of the teams that fairly regularly secured Europe. However, that has not been the case in the last three years, and they once again failed to secure it this year. In the Conference League Group, the Reds have been really bad, and it is evident they don't belong in this group, let alone in Europe. Currently, they are 20 points behind the 1st-placed Gent. 

Gent were among the top five teams in Belgium in the previous decade. This year, they were super close to reaching the Championship group but failed to do so only due to a worse goal difference compared to 6th-placed Genk. However, they are by far the best team in the Conference League Group and will finish in first place regardless of the results in the remaining two games. 

Standard Liege vs Gent pick: Gent to win

Standard Liege are in terrible form. They are currently on a seven-game winless run, and in the last game vs Leuven, they were completely outplayed and lost 3:1. Additionally, the team's morale is surely low considering the players are not receiving their paychecks as the club fell into financial problems. 

On the other hand, Gent have dominated the Conference League Group, winning six of eight matches - 75%. Even in two games they lost vs Leuven, Gent were a better team and deserved more from the games.

In the previous h2h game, Gent absolutely dominated, winning 5:1 at Planet Group Arena in Gent. Additionally, Gent have won four of the last five h2h matches.

Neither team has a motive in this match, but from what we have seen from these teams this season, along with a massive difference in form, we strongly believe Gent should secure a comfortable win over Standard Liege.
