Zulte-Waregem vs Sporting Charleroi
Belgium First Division A
Date: Sunday, 13 September 2020
Kick-Off at 17.30 UK
Venue: Regenboog Stadion, Waregem.
It seems like Sporting Charleroi’s appetite has grown significantly after winning the 3rd place in First Division A last season. They are the only team in league which maintained 100% win rate after four rounds, and hoping to extend the streak this Sunday at Regenboog Stadium against Zulte-Waregem.
Hosts won’t be an easy nut to crack though. After a poor start to the new campaign and back-to-back losses to Genk and Beershot, team Zulte have recovered brilliantly. They were victorious in the last two outings against Beveren and Mouscron. Odds on home win are sky-high at the moment at 3.50.
Zulte-Waregem vs Charleroi Head-to-head
These two teams have a long history of head to head clashes. There were 36 matches so far, with Charleroi having 16-11 lead in terms of victory. They are not so successful when it comes to playing in Waregem, losing eight out of 18 matches while winning only four.
Useful information for punters who enjoy Over/Under markets is that eight out of the last nine h2h games ended with three goals or more.
When it comes to encounters played last season, hosts always took the advantage of home turf and won points.
Zulte-Waregem vs Charleroi Prediction
Amazing defending has been Charleroi’s trademark for years now. They have the best stats in the league, conceding only one goal so far while scoring seven.
It would be totally unfair to say this team had an easy schedule – they shocked and defeated Club Brugge in the opening match 1-0, while also beating high-profile team Antwerp 2-0 FT two weeks ago.
Top goalscorer at the moment is Jamaican striker Shamar Nicholson.
Zulte-Waregem are traditionally struggling against top teams in First Division A. Victories against Mouscron and Beveren were great sure, but both of those opponents belong to the very bottom of the table.
We don’t think they have what it takes to stop Charleroi who are on fire. Away win is our primary bet here.
