Partizan vs Gent: prediction for the UEFA Europa Conference League fixture
Partizan and Gent will lock horns on matchday 3 of the UEFA Europa Conference League on October 21. What to expect from this game? Our answer is in the prediction below.
The 27-time champion of Serbia, Partizan had a successful start to their Conference League campaign. They won both games with the same score (2:0), first beating Anorthosis, and then triumphing over Flora.
Aleksandar Stanojević's men are leading the table in the Serbian Super Liga. They won 11 out of 12 games and are five points lead over of the closest pursuer. In the last two rounds, Partizan defeated Napredak Kruševac (1:0) and Radnik (2:0).
Nikola Lakcevic has a knee injury and has been ruled out of thi fixture.
Gent is one of the youngest clubs in Belgium. Last season they finished second in the Jupiler League, but this year's campaign hasn't been very successful so far. Gent chalked up 4 victories and 2 draws in 11 games, which put them only in 12th place in the standings with 14 points in the asset.
In the last round, Gent defeated Eupen at home (2:0). As for their European performance, Hein Vanhaezebrouck's men have recorded victories in both games and are 2nd in the table.
Bruno, Lemajic, Castro-Montes, and Hjulsager are unavailable for Gent today.
This bet played in 3 out of 4 games of Partizan.
Only 1 draw was recorded in the last 10 games of the hosts.
Goals were scored in both halves in 2 of the last 3 games of Gent.
The two sides have been delivering good results in the Conference League, but we think that the Belgian club is experienced enough to break the hosts' winning streak. Gent have many highly skilled players, and we think they will help the Belgians get a point in Belgrade.
Our prediction - a draw
We expect the teams to play on a collision course and create a large number of scoring chances. We suggest playing the total over here.
Second bet - total over 2.5 goals
