Anderlecht vs OH Leuven Prediction

Anderlecht are overwhelming favourites to emerge triumphant, but their inconsistent displays this season mean a win may not be a certainty.

Leuven, meanwhile, have been flying high and will fancy their chances of getting something out of the game. Both teams like to play on the front foot and could create multiple goalscoring chances.

Despite their inconsistent displays, Anderlecht have superior quality and should claim maximum points in a high-scoring game.

Prediction: Anderlecht 3-1 OH Leuven
