Sporting Charleroi vs Zulte Waregem Prediction
Sporting Charleroi admitted what was only their fourth defeat of the season last week on the road, after Genk edged past them with a narrow 1-0 scoreline. The hosts are now without a win in their past three clashes in the top flight though, and have tasted success just once in their previous six across various competitions.
As of now, the home team have found themselves sitting fifth on the ladder with forty-one points to their name.
On the other hand, Zulte Waregem managed to bring their dismal four-match losing streak to a close in their most recent clash with Waasland-Beveren at home. Impressively, the visitors smashed five unanswered goals past their counterparts in that latter matchup.
Be that as it may, the guests are yet to show any signs of conviction away from home this season. Miserably, they have been at the losing end in each of their previous four outings on the trot.
To make matter worse, Sporting Charleroi are unbeaten at home in their past six fixtures and have dropped points on just one occasion. Given that the hosts have also secured the bragging rights in each of their last seven h2h meetings here, Zulte Waregem can rule out any hopes of coming out on top this weekend.
Furthermore, the hosts have looked lively in the final third at home and have scored ten goals from their last four games here alone. In addition, seven of the past eight h2h meetings at this stadium have witnessed a total of three goals or more on the final scorecards.
Taking into account that the reverse fixture of this matchup was also a high scoring affair, expect no dearth of goals in this one too.
