Zulte-Waregem vs Kortrijk
Belgium – First Division A
Date: Friday, 21 September 2018
Kick-Off at 19:30 UK
Venue: Regenboogstadion (Waregem).
Zulte-Waregem have seen a rather tough schedule recently and now host Kortrijk for their Matchday 8 First Division A clash looking for a return to the winning ways after four losses in a row, hoping to finally impress in front of the home crowd at Regenboogstadion.
Essevee have seen away losses at Cercle Brugge, KV Oostende, Antwerp, seeing their woes on the road extend. However, they’ve been tougher at this ground and only suffered a loss to dominants Club Brugge along the way – which does give a glimpse of home for Francky Dury his men can bounce back to confidence on the day.
Kortrijk have seen similar woes early in the new campaign too and should be an easier task for the home side, having bagged five points in seven games too. They’ve suffered a narrow loss at Royal Excel Mouscron on Sunday and it will be no easier in Waregem, despite their more solid defensive displays of recent and a promise of a good challenge on the day!

Zulte-Waregem vs Kortrijk: Prediction
We will now back Zulte-Waregem to finally bounce back and earn their only second home win this term, going for it at 1.80. We have seen them struggling but Kortrijk do feel like a great chance to bounce back at this point, which has us going for a used opportunity on the day.
They have been conceding numbers of goals, though, and could be in trouble for it once again. Nonetheless, we do see them outgunning the rivals and we’ll thus also back Over 2.5 goals FT at 1.53, which has been rated banker material by many in the know already.
