Zulte-Waregem vs Kortrijk
Belgium – First Division A – Europa League Playoffs
Date: Friday, 20 April 2018
Kick-Off at 19:30 UK
Venue: Regenboogstadion (Waregem).
Zuilte-Waregem have been enjoying a spectacular form ever since the post-season started in the top flight of the Belgian football. They hold the top spot in the Group A of the Belgian Europa League playoffs with three wins and a draw in the opening four ties. They bagged an impressive nine-goal tally in last two victories over Royal Excel Mouscron and Lierse. Can Francky Dutry and his men continue such an amazing spell of form on Friday when they host main rivals in the battle for the top spot in the group Kortrijk?
The visitors sit just a single point below in the second place. They won three and lost one of four ties in the group so far. Teddy Chevalier was the one who bagged a brace to secure a three-pointer against OH Leuven on Tuesday evening and he will be the main threat to Waregem’s goal here on Friday.
Zulte-Waregem vs Kortrijk: Head-to-head
Zulte-Waregem dominated this match-up in games at Regenboogstadion, winning nine and losing just two there.
Zulte were also much more successful in the most recent head to head history as they won three and drew one of last four encounters against Kortrijk.
Three of last four head to head games aw both teams on target.
Zulte-Waregem vs Kortrijk: Prediction
We mentioned Teddy Chevalier as Kortrijk’s threat above in the next. He was impressive netting four goals in four games so far. However, what should we say for Waregem’s Hamdi Harbaoui? The Tunisian forward was red-hot in last two games which saw him bag as many as seven goals. Francky Dury indeed has a super strong attacking line with Harbaoui and Theo Bongonda who added two in four games so far.
With such predators in the final third, we just have to back goals at both ends. The odds for this pick are set at 1.61. Whilst it is a banker bet, we will alternatively try with the value-pick chasing Zilte-Waregem to win & BTTS at the 3.20 odds.
