Gent missed 8 of their last 10 home games
Opponents will play the first face-to-face match in history
Today there are opponents of approximately equal strength. The battle of the vice-champions of their countries promises to be hot, because at stake is reaching the Champions League qualifying final.
In our opinion, today we will face a lot of tough struggle in all parts of the field, a lot of violations that the Swedish referee Ekberg regularly punishes with yellow cards.
The main bet is to play a bet on the passage of the Austrian club, which is in good shape and has an excellent winning streak. The second bet is the yellow cards, which we expect in abundance.
Our forecast is the passage of “Rapid” and we bet on this on the line of BC Winline with a coefficient of 2.25
Second bet – total over 5 yellow cards for 2.56
