In their previous match, Mechelen met AS Eupen on Saturday and it finished in a slender 2:1 win at home. At the moment, the club is enjoying a streak of two successive victories. Being the host turned out to be of little importance in Mechelen’s recent ten encounters, with the sides performing on home ground triumphing on 6 occasions and the visitors recording three wins. Only one of their last 10 meetings resulted in a draw. All but one of their most recent five clashes produced more than 2.5 goals with two seeing both of the squads netting goals. Within this time frame Mechelen were successful in keeping one clean sheet and failed to score in two. During the team’s recent five outings, the goalkeepers had to pull the ball out of the nets 15 times altogether.
