Worth mentioning: Mechelen’s last competitive match was back in March with Eupen, when the two sides shared the points after 1:1 draw. The team played six friendlies in the summer and failed to score a single goal, losing five of the meetings as one ended in goalless draw. Mechelen conceded three or more in four of the exhibition games. Just one of the previous eight Mechelen encounters was won by the visiting sides. Three of their last five outings produced over 2,5 goals, and understandably none of those saw both involved teams to score.
Anderlecht were on a run of three consecutive victories with a goal difference of 16:1 when the league was prematurely ended in March. They took part in six friendlies since then, recording three wins, a draw and two defeats. The most recent of those was meeting with French side Lille last Friday, which ended in 2:0 defeat for the Belgians. Just two of their last five encounters featured over 2,5 goals, while only a single one witnessed goals at both ends.
