Venue: Regenboogstadion (Waregem).
The 15th placed Zulte Waregem hosts the third placed Anderlecht in this Jupiler League game. In a fixture of David vs Goliath nature, Zulte Waregem has only one thing going for them; the home ground advantage. But against the mighty Anderlecht, it might not be enough.
