Will the Kompany-Elf remain undefeated in the port city?
Three games have been played in the Belgian Jupiler League so far and the first tendencies are emerging. While KV Oostende under the new coach Alexander Blessin is still waiting for its very first three in the 2020/21 season, RSC Anderlecht is still undefeated under the now sole coach Vincent Kompany.
It is hardly surprising that in the run-up to the game between Oostende and Anderlecht the odds of the bookmakers turn out to be towards the guests, which can be seen in the odds comparison of the betting base.
However, the prediction for Oostende against Anderlecht has to take into account that the Kompany team only won one of the three league games and only played two draws. Things are not going completely smoothly for the Belgian record champions either, who have not won another championship title for three seasons in a row.
For this reason, the draw against Anderlecht must also be covered in the tip at Ostend. We, therefore, use the double chance X2 and combine it with “Both teams to score: Yes” to increase the odds a little.
Oostende – Statistics & current form
At the end of the canceled 2019/20 season, KV Oostende occupied the penultimate place in the table. The so-called Kustboys were able to win just six of the 29 league games, which was mainly due to the weak defense.
The 58 goals conceded were the second-worst league value. Oostende conceded exactly two goals per game on average, which led to 19 defeats out of 29 games. Accordingly, the club’s management decided to do a complete reset in the summer and installed Alexander Blessin, the first-ever German trainer at KVO.
On average only half as many goals conceded as in the previous season
Success is still a long time coming, although at least the defense has increased massively. In the first three league games, the Kustboys only got a single point in the goalless draw on Monday evening, but only conceded three goals in total. The average of the previous season could thus be halved.
Nonetheless, it is still an average of one goal per game, which gives Oostende against Anderlecht the tip “Both teams to score: Yes” with a lot of value.
Only one goal of the season from the first three games
However, at KVO, the offensive must finally increase. The penultimate of the previous season was only able to mark one goal of the season, with the two new center strikers Makhtar Gueye and Marko Kvasina, in particular, remaining pale. For the former, those responsible for the yellow and red even transferred a million euros transfer fee to AS Saint-Étienne, which is a lot of money for the club from the Belgian port city.
The traditional club, which will celebrate its 115th birthday in October, has potential. Now it’s time to build on the most recent draw and the first point win, for which the suspended Jelle Bataille is missing an important player after being sent off in Sint-Truidense.
Probable formation of Oostende:
↪ Hubert – Skúlason – Tanghe – Theate – Capon – Vandendrie – D’Arpino – Boonen – Hjulsager – D’Haese – Sakala

Anderlecht – Statistics & current form
With 34 championships won, RSC Anderlecht is still the Belgian record champion and accordingly goes into the league every year with the claim to play for the championship title.
Last season, that didn’t work out at all when the team trained by Frank Vercauteren only finished eighth in the final table with just eleven wins from 29 games. So it’s no wonder that those in charge of the royal team readjusted in the coaching bench. Vincent Kompany, who was still the player-coach last season, became the sole trainer in Anderlecht.
Five Anderlecht players appointed to the Belgian national team
It may also be due to the charisma of the long-time Manchester City player that five RSC Anderlecht players were ordered into the Belgian national football team in the run-up to the international break.
- “As a club, you can only be proud if five of your players are called up for the Red Devils.” – Vincent Kompany at Anderlecht-online.be
In any case, it proves what enormous quality can be found in the violet-whites’ squad.
Especially for the 18-year-old shooting star Jérémy Doku, it is ultimately the very first nomination ever for the senior national team. At the season opener in Mechelen, the right-wing shot his team 1-0 up and underlined his value with the first competitive goal of the 2020/21 season.
Already two times in the final phase lost a lead
Nevertheless, the RSC Anderlecht is still missing one or the other nuance that must be worked on so that the championship train does not leave promptly again without the royal team. Because a 2-0 lead in Mechelen was gambled away in the last seven minutes (final score 2-2) and the goal was conceded in stoppage time at home against Mouscron-Peruwelz despite just under an hour, only five points are in place on the account.
The violet-whites have to put up with the accusation that they have not been fully there twice in the final phase of a game – be it for physical or mental reasons. Nevertheless, in the run-up to the game between Oostende and Anderlecht, the odds turned towards the Kompany-Elf, who could quickly slide back into tabular nirvana with the next missing three.
Probable formation of Anderlecht:
↪ Van Crombrugge – Mykhaylichenko – Cobbaut – Luckassen – Murillo – Zulj – Kana – Trebel – Documentary – El Hadj – Dimata
