Gent vs Rapid Vienna – Champions League Match Preview, Kick-Off Time & Match Prediction

Third qualifying round knockout match, with Gent taking on Rapid Vienna on Tuesday the 15th of September, 2020, at GHELAMCO-arena.

Five games, four losses, one victory, just three points, that’s all Gent have to show for up to now in Belgium’s championship, numbers that do not paint a very promising picture for the Belgian side ahead of this “final” against Rapid. Their current form reads; LDWLL (the “D” is a draw in a friendly game during the international break). On Friday they lost 2-1 at Eupen, putting on less of a fight than what the final score suggests. Coach László Bölöni took over on August 20. Last Friday he chose a 4-3-3 formation, but that was against a rather average team of Belgium’s championship. Gent need the CL group stage money (all clubs do…), and not even reaching the playoffs would be a serious failure.

Unlike Gent, Rapid had to play in the second qualifying round, where they beat Lokomotiva Zagreb 0-1, thanks to a first-half goal by Ercan Kara. Before the international break they also beat a lower-division team in Austria’s Cup (5-0), while last Friday, on their debut in the championship, they beat Admira as well, 4-1, after leading 2-0 at half time, and 3-0 with 10 minutes left. Their current form reads; WWWLW. Coach Dietmar Kühbauer (in charge since October 2018) played a 4-2-3-1 formation on Friday, but that was obviously a totally different game to the one Rapid Vienna have ahead of them in Belgium. There is a lot of optimism, but as Kühbauer himself told reporters before flying to Belgium, Gent’s poor start in the season should not make anyone underestimate them, especially in a knockout match.

Gent and Rapid have never met before.

This is Gent’s opportunity to… erase the negative impressions they left these last weeks, by winning the most important game of all at the start of this new season.

A 2-1 victory for Gent is predicted at full-time.

Date: Tuesday, 15th of September, 2020.

Venue: GHELAMCO-arena

Kick-off time: 20:30 (GMT+2).
