The King Baudouin Stadium will play host to the final of the 2021-22 Belgian Cup when Gent and Anderlecht go head-to-head on Monday.

Anderlecht face a stern test of taking on the Buffalos as they have failed to win any of the last 10 meetings between the sides since 2018.

KAA Gent made light work of Oud-Heverlee Leuven when they met in the Belgian Pro League last Sunday as they cruised to a comfortable 5-0 victory.

The Buffalos are now unbeaten in 10 consecutive domestic games, claiming an impressive nine wins and one draw in that time.

They have now turned their attention to the Belgian Cup, where they have enjoyed a fine road to the final, picking up three wins and losing one of their four games so far.

Anderlecht, meanwhile, had to work their socks off as they came from behind to claim a hard-earned 3-2 league win at Kortrijk last time out.

They are now unbeaten in all but one of their last 11 games in all competitions, claiming eight wins and two draws in that time.

They now head to the cup competition, where they have enjoyed an unbeaten campaign so far, claiming four wins and one draw from five outings.


Gent vs Anderlecht Head-To-Head

With 35 wins from the last 79 meetings between the sides, Anderlecht boast a superior record in the history of this fixture. Gent have picked up 11 wins in that time, while 23 games have ended all square.
