After four successive Pro League defeats, KV Mechelen hope to halt their dwindling form at home against Sint-Truidense on Saturday evening.

Neither side are in good form to start the 2020-21 campaign, with a combined nine points from their twelve matches played so far this term. In their last six H2H meetings, there has been three wins apiece – it's clear this matchup is a highly competitive one and will likely be one again here.

Can either side arrest their sharp decline with a much-needed win to end September on a high? Read my match preview, for the correct score predictions and best betting tips ahead of this fixture.

KV Mechelen vs St. Truiden Betting Tips

Mechelen scored first away to Genk but ultimately emerged second best, losing 3-1 last weekend as Paul Onuachu netted two and Junya Ito had a goal and assist.

The two sides were level on points (44) and goal difference (+3) after 29 Pro League games last term, but narrowly missed out on European qualification. So the fact Wouter Vrancken's side were bested by one of their close rivals certainly would have dented their confidence.

The 41-year-old head coach needs to halt their drastic slump, having started the campaign with four points from the first two games (W1, D1). The last time they lost four in a row?

The start of 2020, believe it or not. They responded with three successive wins and a draw before the coronavirus pandemic halted play in mid-March. It'll be interesting to see if they can replicate that success here against a St. Truiden side who are also struggling.

They were 2-1 winners against Gent on MD1 but are winless since (L3, D2). Can head coach Milos Kostic oversee his side avenging their 3-0 defeat, dating back to late February, on this occasion?

KV Mechelen vs St. Truiden Correct Score Predictions

Given both are struggling, it goes without saying that neither wants to continue their struggles this weekend. However, it's that same reasoning which gives me cause for concern when predicting who will emerge victorious.

I'm leaning towards BTTS during a fixture which could kickstart a much-needed surge in form for either team here.
