Kick-off at 17:30 UK/ 18:30 CET
Venue: AFAS-stadion Achter de Kazerne (Mechelen).
Mid-table side Mechelen will try their luck in the league against Zulte-Waregem on Saturday. Winless in their recent five clashes in the campaign not only broke their five-game unbeaten streak but also pulled them to the 12th spot on the table. They will return home after a 2-1 loss on the road against St. Truiden last time out in their schedule.
Zulte-Waregem has three wins in their recent five fixtures, with their two defeats in that period coming away from home. Their losses on the road will not affect their upcoming clash against a team trailing by four points to them on the table. They will visit on the back of a 2-1 win at home against the likes of Eupen in the previous encounter.

Mechelen vs Zulte-Waregem Prediction
It hasn’t been goal festivals in the recent h2h meetings between these two sides. Mechelen has been winless for the past five matches in the campaign, making their attacks slow. The host is still likely to score at least a goal with their ground advantage, and three of their last five clashes have ended in a draw.
Zulte-Waregem is in for a treat, as they are the favorites to win in the encounter. The away team has only two losses in their last seven matches in the campaign. Besides, they have lost their last two outings with both defeats coming against teams sitting within the top four spots on the table.
With their current form in the game, the match is not likely to be a high-scoring affair. The tip for under 3.5 goals will probably suffice the goal requirements along with a BTTS in the clash. The double chance favoring Zulte-Waregem will probably be the best bet for the punters in the encounter.
