Cercle Brugge vs Zulte Waregem Prediction
Cercle Brugge failed miserably in bringing a change in their fortune last week on the road and were handed a 3-0 defeat by Sporting Charleroi. The hosts were virtually invisible in that latter clash and finished the ninety minutes with just one measly shot on target as opposed to their foes who recorded seven.
With just two wins in the bag, the home side are deservedly sitting at the bottom of the ladder. On the other hand, Zulte Waregem are sporting an impressive two-match winning streak under their belt.
The visitors have stumbled just once in their past four fixtures in the league, and have garnered nine points from a possible twelve as well. It is also worth mentioning that the guests have been promising in their outings so far, and have admitted defeat just thrice this term.
In sharp contrast, Cercle Brugge have dropped points in seven of their past nine games here. As such, given the disappointing form that the hosts are on, the visitors will be fancying the prospect of coming away with all three points.
However, Zulte Waregem have shared the spoils thrice on the road already. Taking into account that half of their previous four trips here have also witnessed both teams salvage no more than a point, it is just too soon to rule out the possibilities of a draw.
Hence, the safest punt would have to a double chance.
Furthermore, it has been goals galore whenever these two sides lock horns. All of their previous four h2h meetings here have featured a total of three or more goals on the final scorecards.
With the reverse fixture at Regenboogstadion, back in October, ending a whopping 6-0 scoreline, expect goals to be in abundance come Saturday as well.
