Two sides pushing for a top-half finish in the First Divison A square-off on Friday as Westerlo plays host to OH Leuven. 

An intriguing battle between two evenly matched teams, just four points separates the hosts, who sit seventh and visiting Leuven, who arrive in Westerlo in ninth spot. 

Westerlo vs OH Leuven Betting Tips - BTTS and over 2.5 goals scored 

A likely entertaining contest in the Belgian First Division A, picking a winner in this contest looks like a thankless task with both sides very much up and down during this campaign.

Coming into this fixture, Westerlo have won three, drawn three and lost two of their previous eight league matches. Similarly up and down, the away side have been more down than up in recent weeks, having won just one of their last eight First Division A outings. 

On the road, OH Leuven have been a fairly reliable choice in the BTTS market, however, with seven of their last nine, including four of the last five seeing both teams hitting the target. Three of their four most recent league games also saw over 2.5 goals scored.

Hosts Westerlo have also seen a fairly high proportion of fixtures finishing with BTTS and over 2.5 goals scored, particularly at the Jet Kuipje. Indeed, five of their last eight home matches have seen both outcomes, with an average of 4.1 goals scored in those matches.

Recent meetings between these sides have also proved entertaining affairs, with four of the last five matches since 2019 seeing BTTS and over 2.5 goals scored. Leuven won three of those matches, including both of their last two visits to this venue.

As we mentioned earlier, picking a winner is probably best avoided and while we´d probably lean towards a home victory, backing both teams to score should prove a profitable selection, with the over 2.5 goals double also seeming likely based on both the h2h record and recent league form.
