Gent (Bel) vs Rapid Vienna (Aut) PREVIEW & PREDICTION 15/09/2020

On Tuesday, starting with 19:30, the Gent-Rapid Vienna match will be played, within the preliminaries of the Champions League.

Gent, the band prepared by Ladislau Boloni, is not going through a “pink” period. The team with pretensions to the first positions, the “blues” managed to get only 3 points in the first 5 stages! At this moment, Ghent ranks 16th in the Pro League, with one victory and 4 defeats, positioning itself just one point ahead of the “red lantern” Mouscron. In this context, the position occupied by the Romanian is endangered! In case of a failure in the confrontation with Rapid Vienna, the chances for Boloni to leave Ghent are at least significant.

On the other hand, Rapid Vienna comes after a definite success in the championship, 4-1 with Admira, in the inaugural round of the Tipico Bundesliga. However, in order to prepare the best forecasts, we must take into account a number of extremely important factors. First of all, the individual value of Gent’s players is clearly superior to the Austrians, the difference between the two teams being considerable. Broadly speaking, keeping the proportions, we can say that Ghent is with “2 classes” over Rapid Vienna! In addition, secondly, despite the defeats suffered in the championship, the Belgians will leave with the advantage of several standing matches, an advantage that can be decisive in a European meeting. In this sense, our tips will be outlined in this direction.

-Rapid Vienna, 3 official matches played since the resumption of football;
-Gent comes after the failure in the championship with Eupen (score 1-2);
-Gent have scored in 5 of the last 6 matches played.

PREDICTION: Gent to win @ 1,85
