Best Tip: Antwerp to win

Having examined the bookies' odds and collated statistics regarding both sides ahead of this Pro League game, a bet on win / draw / win for Antwerp to win in front of their own fans is the way we would recommend bettors go. We predict they'll overpower Mechelen, and head-to-head (H2H) records show they have a track record of doing so. It may not all be plain sailing, but Antwerp claiming victory is the bet come Saturday evening.
