Zulte-Waregem vs Club Brugge
Belgium – First Division A
Date: Friday, 31 August 2018
Kick-Off at 19:30 UK / 20:30 CET
Venue: Regenboogstadion, Waregem.
The reigning champions travel to Regenboogstadion high on confidence after beating Anderlecht in the season derby last weekend at Jan Breydelstadion.
Emmanuel Dennis and Hans Vanaken notched goals for Blauw-Zwart to keep them level with Genk at the very top of the First Division A ladder with 13 points after five rounds.
The match with the champions and current table-toppers comes in the worst possible moment for the hosts who have suffered back-to-back defeats to Cercle Brugge nd KV Oostende in last two rounds.
To make things worse for Francky Dury, his men revealed a number of holes at the back allowing three goals in each of the mentioned losses.
That’s certainly not the kind of form you want to have ahead of the clash with the strongest attacking line in the country.
Zulte-Waregem vs Club Brugge: Head-to-head
We could be in for a high-scoring thriller in the first game of the new Matchday judging by the most recent head to head history.
Each of last six H2H games saw three or more goals scored, while both teams found the back of the net in all of past five meetings.
Club Brugge were much more successful in the process, winning five and drawing one of these six matches.
Zulte-Waregem vs Club Brugge: Prediction
Ivan Leko had a deadly line-up of attackers led by last term top scorer Jele Vossen who has already notched three goals so far in the season.
Given that Vossen & company will be up against the struggling defensive line of Zulte-Waregem’s here, it’s really hard to predict anything else but the comfortable aw2ay victory.
The head to head trend also suggests a host of goals in Zulte’s net as Cub Brugge Over 1.5 Team Goals looks to be a banker bet at the 1.83 odds.
Since each of last five head to head outings saw goals at both ends, we have to try with the away win & BTTS at 3.75 odds.
