Gent hosts Rapid Wien

Gent hosts Rapid Wien in a fixture from the 3rd qualifying round of the UEFA Champions League. Everything is going to be decided in just one game, so these are crucial 90 minutes at the GHELAMCO-arena in Gent. Let’s preview it in our football betting tips this weekend.

For Gent this is going to be a first game in the Champions League qualifiers for this season – they are starting their challenge from the 3rd round. In the Belgian First Division A Gent didn’t start very well – the club won once and suffered four defeats in the first five rounds. Because of this poor form, fans are now worried before hosting Rapid on Tuesday.

In their last game Gent visited AS Eupen and suffered a 1-2 defeat. Sven Kums scored Gent’s only goal in the game, but it was not enough for the team to avoid the loss.

If Gent fails to win against Rapid Wien on Tuesday, most likely there would be some serious changes at the club.

Rapid Wien successfully won their game in the 2nd qualifying round of the Champions League. The Austrian side visited Lokomotiva Zagreb and achieved a 1-0 win in the Croatian capital. It was Ercan Kara who scored the winning goal in the first half of the game.

Rapid Wien started their season in the Austrian Bundesliga with a big bang. Dietmar Kuhbauer’s team hosted Admira and celebrated a convincing 4-1 win. The Greek striker Taxiarchis Fountas scored twice while Murg and Kitigawa also scored for Rapid.

In our football betting tips this weekend we expect a competitive match between Gent and Rapid Wien in the Champions League qualifiers. Gent’s current shape is worrying, so clearly there’s a big chance for Rapid to take the win here. Maybe Gent remain a slight favourite, but we don’t believe they have much of an advantage in this case.
