Venue: GHELAMCO-Arena in Gent.

Gent and Zulte-Waregem will play the real derby match of the round in the First Division A. The game is set to kick off this Sunday afternoon at GHELAMCO-Arena in Gent. Home team will be looking to snatch the much needed victory in order to get closer to the very top of the table. And close the gap behind the current leaders to two points. The visitors are surprising leaders of the competition after nine matches into the 2016/17 season of Belgian First Division.

Zulte-Waregem have been phenomenal since the very start of the season. The striker from Senegal, Mbaye Leye has been outstanding after bagging four goals so far this season. The team showed amazing attacking potential in four straight victories over Mouscron, Kortrijk, Cpellen and Mechelen. The positive run was terminated with the last round’s disappointing home draw with Charleroi. Gent also found the right shape as they snatched three wins in a row in all competitions, but the fans were extremely disappointed with a narrow 1 – 0 defeat at Club Brugge in the last round.
