Gent vs Westerlo Match Analysis & Prediction
28/04/2023 9:45 pm
Gent will look to retain their top position in the Conference League Group when they take on Westerlo in their Matchday 1 of the second phase of the Pro League campaign.
Gent finished fifth in the regular phase of the campaign after picking up 56 points from 34 games. They now fight for a place in the Conference League net next season and having won the group last season, they are the favorites to qualify this season.
They currently sit top of the play-off group and their priority will be to retain the position on Friday. Gent won 2-1 in the corresponding fixture in the regular season against Westerlo and should hope a similar result in the tomorrow’s show.
Westerlo finished seventh in the regular season, to secure a place in this group of the second phase of the campaign. They generally had a good campaign, but failed to win in their last four games, drawing 1-1 with Seraing on the final day.
They will look to bounce back on Friday as they seek to secure a European spot next season, but this will be a challanging task for Jonas De Roeck’s men.
