Anderlecht and Kortrijk will battle for three points on matchday nine of the Jupiler League on Sunday (September 18).

The hosts are coming off a goalless draw at FCSB in the UEFA Europa Conference League on Thursday. Before that, they fell to a 2-1 defeat at Westerlo in the league. Halil Akbunar stepped off the bench to score an 83rd-minute winner.

Kortrijk, meanwhile, suffered a harrowing 4-1 defeat against KV Mechelen at home. Rob Schoof scored a brace to inspire his team to a convincing victory.

The defeat left Karim Belhocine's side in 14th spot, having garnered seven points from eight games. Anderlecht, meanwhile, are ninth with ten points to show for their efforts in eight games.

Anderlecht vs Kortrijk Prediction

Anderlecht are strong favourites in the game, but their inability to string consistent results together means nothing can be taken for granted.

However, against a Kortrijk side that has been poor all season, Felix Mazzu's side have a great opportunity to close the gap on the teams above them. The hosts should claim a comfortable win in a high-scoring game.

Prediction: Anderlecht 3-1 Kortrijk
