Zulte-Waregem vs Nice
UEFA Europe League Group-stage – Season 2017/2018
Date: 14th September 2017
Kick off at 20:05 UK/ 21:05 CET
One of the Group K duels is going to take place at Regenboogstadion where Zulte-Waregem is hosting Nice.
Zulte-Waregem is starting the Europe League competition in the group stage. Last time they participated in the UEL was in the season 2014/2015. They were eliminated by Shakhtyor in the 3rd qualifying round.
They are coming from a 2 – 2 draw at home in their national league. They had started their domestic campaign with two wins, but somewhat worsened their record later on. Currently, they are the sixth-ranked team in Belgium.
Nice have been eliminated in the play-offs round of the Champions League, so they are continuing their UEFA campaign in the Europe League. Last year, they failed to go through the group stage of UEL where they were together with Schalke 04, Krasnodar, and Salzburg.
They are coming from a 4 – 0 win against Monaco in their national league, where they are currently the 11th ranked. This has been their second win after five weeks of Ligue 1.
Zulte-Waregem vs Nice: Head to head
They met once in 2015, in a club-friendly game. Zulte-Waregem won at home with a score of 2 – 1 but the relevance of that is not that big. Friendly games are usually played with tons of subs and there was no any big pressure on any side to win.
Zulte-Waregem vs Nice: Prediction
Neither team is in an avid shape, but the visitors seem to be the stronger team. In this fixture, we can expect goals on both sides of the pitch, since both of them are expected to fight hard and take an open approach. Even though Nice will not be on their turf, we believe they will manage to earn three points from this match.
